Vitulus is a wine which is not ‘oaked’ but is barrel matured. We aim to have the roundness and length derived from time spent in oak but not to interfere too much with the complex and obvious fruit characters that are the hallmark of Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon.
The Reschke family first settled in Coonawarra in 1906, where they established their Hereford stud. The cattle grazing heritage is the inspiration for the Bull logo and hopefully symbolises their ‘grit’ in pursuit of their goals, passion, strength and resolve. The Reschke vineyard holdings of 400 acres, consists of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Shiraz, Petit Verdot, all cropped particularly low to yield the highest quality fruit. The generation of Coonawarra that Reschke represents is two fold, with cutting edge viticulture married to traditional wine making techniques under the watchful eye of winemaking legend, Peter Douglas.
