‘Empyrean is Latin for the highest sphere in which the purist elements of life exist’.
The vines are meticulously hand pruned as one measure, to keep the vineyards balanced and yields low. The result is small thick-skinned berries expressing pure Coonawarra character. The resulting wine is complex and lengthy, with malolactic fermentation and maturation being completed in only hand selected new French oak. Each vintage is scrutinized and only the best of them make it through, ensuring quality parameters are met. When they are not achieved, this wine will be blended back into our next offering and not released. The result is a distinguished, powerful Cabernet Sauvignon that certainly leaves a lasting impression.
Empyrean quality pushed Reschke into the forefront of the evolving Australian wine industry, establishing it as a reputable Coonawarra icon.
As affirmed by leading US wine critic Robert Parker, Reschke “may well be the benchmark for Coonawarra’s famed Cabernet Sauvignon."
