Tasted in 2018, this is a brilliant example of what the Coonawarra traditionally does. Ripe fruit, long ageing and released with bottle age. It's the only way to drink this kind of style due to the high percentage of new oak (perhaps 100% new) and tannin profile of the Cabernet. At present there is a bit of integration but I'd love to see how this wine holds up in 10 years. That's when I'd be drinking it. - Chris L
Balnaves of Coonawarra Vineyard was established in 1975, and is situated at the southern end of the Coonawarra Terra Rossa strip. The Balnaves family have been associated with the district since 1855 with the first wines under the Balnaves of Coonawarra label being produced in 1990. We remain fully committed to a high level of 'hands-on' involvement and look forward to sharing our passion with you.
We aim to produce consistently high quality wines from fruit sourced from our own Coonawarra vineyards, reflecting the unique flavours, character and quality of fruit grown in this area, as well as the variation of seasons in this cool climate area.
