Balgownie is most notable for its deep red colour, vibrant berry fruit aromas, subtle use of oak, velvety textures and fine, lingering tannins.

Balgownie can boast the oldest vines in Bendigo. Stuart Anderson established his vineyard on the rich soils of Maiden Gully, pioneering the commercialization of viticulture in the region. Balgownie continues to take massive strides, as the site has expanded to thirty hectares of the most spendid winegrowing terroir. The Shiraz vines have now stood the test of time, yielding parcels of the finest fruit. Grapes are destemmed, some bunches are crushed and pumped into a mix of open vats and fermenters, for two to three weeks of pumpovers and plunging, before being filled into a selection of new and seasoned French and American oak barrels, where it reposes up to eighteen months prior to assemblage.
Deep magenta red colour. Complex nose of dark cherries, plum and smooth chocolatey oak. The palate has great depth of flavour, intensity and weight, a memorable wine, splashes of red fruits and allied spice, fashioned to a concentrated, yet elegant, medium bodied style with velvety textures and fine lingering tannins on a long finish.
