2015 Cabernet Sauvignon

Rated by Halliday as gold medal standard with 95 points.

This is a fresh classic Coonawarra cabernet but reflecting a modern style. Halliday states “the bouquet is fragrant, with blackcurrant and an airbrush of Coonawarra mint, fine grained tannins first out of the block on the long; medium-bodied palate. Its those tannins, not oak that shape the overall impact of very good wine”. Best before 2035.

Made by Peter Bissell, chief winemaker Balnaves.

2015 Shiraz

This is a medium bodied single vineyard elegant wine. It was aged in French oak barrels for 18 months. It is showing plum skin black pepper and spicy characters with medium body typical of Coonawarra. Halliday rates this as a wine of “great quality, style and character and worthy of a place in any cellar” and he believes it is of “special value”. Best before 2026.

2014 Cabernet Sauvignon

This was a warmer year and whilst the grapes ripened early and the flavours were slower to develop, we waited and were one of the last in the area to pick. Longer hang time meant the fruit gained the intensity of flavours and tannin ripeness. Halliday says it is “perfectly balanced’ with“mulberry, blackcurrant and peppermint flavours”, we do not over oak but let the tannins come through. Best before 2032.

2014 Shiraz

Like the 2014 Cabernet, this single vineyard Shiraz was picked late to maximise the flavour. This is a dense red colour wine with a perfumed nose of white pepper, black plums and subtle spicy oak. The palate is round and plush with round soft mouth feel and fine tannins on the finish It was aged for 15 months in French oak barrels. Best before 2026.

2012 Cabernet Sauvignon
(Museum stock)

Rated by Halliday as a gold medal standard with 95 points. Halliday says “ bright crimson-purple; like the Shiraz, matured for 18 months; every bit as good, and indeed more elegant; it is Coonawarra Cabernet at its effortless best, with cassis fruit and superfine tannins running the length of the palate. Given its pedigree, great value”. Best before 2027.

Made by Peter Bissell, chief winemaker of Balnaves.

2012 Shiraz

Best before 2027.
