Reschke guards the essence of Coonawarra, a responsibility they take seriously. Vitulus is latin for bull calf, a reminder of the Reschke family's cattle grazing heritage. Keeping bud numbers under control through careful hand pruning is a priority, the team are able to restrict yields to a low 1.3 tonnes per acre. The vines are meticulously shoot positioned and nurtured, the resultant fruit has been used over the years to create some of Australia's icon wines. Matured up to two years in a combination of first use French oak hogsheads and older French and American hogsheads and barriques. Rackings are carried out in the first year and second winters to help clarify the wine and soften its structure.
By Peter Douglas, the man who put Wynns on the map, Vitulus provides an entry level to the Reschke family of statuesque Cabernet wines. Vitulus is barrel matured without being heavily oaked. The aim is for roundness and length derived from time spent in barrel, but not to interfere too much with the complex, defined fruit characters which are the hallmark of Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon. Its judicious level of natural acidity will see Vitulus develop slowly and gracefully, achieving great complexity as exciting cigarbox and chocolate characters evolve.
Intense colour, almost black with crimson edges. Aromas of plum, cassis and cedar with some stalk. Sweet blackcurrant on the palate, blackberry and dark chocolate flavours upfront followed by stalk and savoury characters. A well rounded Cabernet wine, soft in texture, offering plenty of cassis and spicy, almost peppery flavours. The structure is firm but not astringent, plush and soothing whilst offering great length.
