    Balnaves

    Originally working out of a neighbouring estate's winery, Balnaves built their impressive 600-tonne capacity winery in 1996. Produced exclusively from estate-grown Coonawara fruit, the philosophy is to maximise and build complexity and structure in all the wines. Furthermore, they are made to be aged and are best after several years of cellaring.

    "Grapegrower, viticultural consultant and vigneron, Doug Balnaves has over 70ha of high quality estate vineyards. The wines are invariably excellent, often outstanding; notable for their supple mouthfeel, varietal integrity, balance and length - the tannins are always fine and ripe, the oak subtle and perfectly integrated. Coonawarra at its best." James Halliday

    Balnaves The Tally Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2004 (6x75cl)

    Jancis Robinson (18++)

    Donated by Pete Bissell, Blanaves' winemaker. 2004 was a waypoint in Coonawarra's history. Many good wines made. Developments in precision viticulture: each block managed according to soil profile, clonal selection and trellis system. The Tally is produced from the best parcels of the 120-acre vineyard, and not produced every year. The vines are mostly machine pruned and harvested. Fermented in vinimatics and open-topped static fermenters. Maturation 18-22 months in fine-grained new and used French oak barriques and hogsheads. Before swirling it has a peppery and yeast extract note, though the fruit starts to emerge with aeration. Much more intense and crisp cassis on the palate. Dense but fine tannins, pretty fresh acidity and a tight, dry leafy finish. Powerful and tightly furled, hence the plus.

    Deep purple-red; an incredibly powerful and expressive bouquet, the luscious but tightly framed blackcurrant, cassis and French oak precisely fulfilling the promises of the bouquet.

    Balnaves The Tally Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2006 (6x75cl)

    James Halliday (96)

    Beautifully crafted and delineated cassis fruit, framed by gently toasty oak and some floral notes; the palate is rich, deep, fine and very long; the brightness of fruit at the core is the essence of this wine. ProCork.
