Impeccable Coonawarra Cabernet, for the long haul.
About The Wine
If you looked up Coonawarra Cabernet in the dictionary, there could well be a picture of this wine cut and pasted in.
The Balnaves Cabernet Sauvignon shows everything that has made this region so famous. It's powerful yet composed, seductive, yet authoritative, it's a wine destined for a big future yet will reward now alongside a rack of lamb.
The 2012 season was very good to the vignerons of Coonawarra and it shows in the balance and composure of this wine.
The 2012 release received 95 points from James Halliday and 94 points from Campbell Mattinson. A classic Coonawarra Cabernet and a beautiful one at that.
Balnaves is a shining jewel in the crown of Coonawarra.
A family-owned winery established in the early 1970s, Balnaves is one of the few fully independent wine businesses in the region.
Their Reserve Cabernet, The Tally, is one of the country's most collectable Cabernets with an established pedigree for longevity and balance.
With the next generation of Balnaves taking up positions in the family business, their story is set to continue to fold in the region for decades to come.
James Halliday describes Balnaves as, "Coonawarra at its best."
