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 immediate drinking alongside a rack of lamb.

A classic Coonawarra Cabernet and a beautiful one at that. Drink now or cellar with confidence.

About Balnaves

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 of longevity and balance.

With the next generation of Balnaves taking up positions in the family business, their story is set to continue to unfold in the region for decades to come.

James Halliday describes Balnaves as, "Coonawarra at its best."

Additional Info

From The Producer

Deep, dark purple red, the nose is dense with pure aromatics of cassis and blackberry with a touch of liquorice and fine integrated coffee from the oak. The palate is rich with great depth of cassis blackberry fruit and fine grainy tannins. This wine will reward careful cellaring and we recommend decanting before drink.

Halliday Wine Companion

"All cabernet, and it's marching to its own tune. Hum along to the chorus of pristine flavours of blackberries, mulberries, juniper and baking spices, plus some chocolate flecked with mint. The palate is well contained, with sweet fruit and oak neatly played out. Tannins are lovely – grainy and textural." - Jane Faulkner (Halliday Wine Companion)

    Stunning wine

    What a delightful wine.

    Everything you want from a Cabernet Sauvignon. We had it with Christmas lunch and everyone was in love with it.

FaQs

Do I have to order in dozens? No, please mix it up! You can order wines in any quantity and variation you like. You can order 1 bottle or 50. We challenge you to make the ultimate mixed pack of wine!

Are there volume discounts? No, our pricing is designed to be the best in market already - no marking up and then discounting down! For very large orders (weddings, etc) we are open to negotiating though. Just give us a call.

Do we price match? Yes, within reason. Everyday low & consistent pricing is something we strongly believe in. We want our customers to feel confident they are always getting the best price. If you see a price lower somewhere else let us know and we'll consider matching it. We'll even retrospectively issue you store credit if you have already purchased from us but you see a lower price somewhere later on. Our price match policy can be seen here.

Can coupons and discounts be stacked? No, only one discount or coupon can be applied to an order at once.

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me? This means we are running low on stock of that wine. So for example, if the website will only allow you to add 3 bottles and no more, then that is all we have of that particular wine. The good news is we may be able to order more for you. Just contact us on 02 8376 8775 or hello@differentdrop.com and we'll organise the additional quantity for you.

Does Different Drop have a physical store? No. Just an a warehouse/office. We occasionally do events however, so sign up to our newsletter or follow us on instagram to stay in the loop.

Can I special order a wine you do not sell? If it’s doable, then we’ll make it happen. Just contact us directly via phone, chat or email and we’ll find out for you right away. Please note that in most cases special orders such as these will need to be in full case lots (6 or 12 bottles).
