A luscious gravity... Outstanding.
About The Wine
The Tally is the pinnacle of the Balnaves stable of outstanding Coonawarra wines.
This fruit gets the royal treatment. Hand-picked, matured in the finest French barrels. Carefully monitored every step along the way to bottle.
The 2012 vintage was as good as you will see in Coonawarra. A long, dry season with moderate temperatures, the fruit quality was impeccable.
If you're looking for a wine that will mature with grace over the following decades, then look no further.
This is the greatness of Coonawarra Cabernet in a bottle.
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."
