Coonawarra graziers have access to the finest soils for viticulture. Doug Balnaves was born in the very heart of Coonawarra, quite near the sacred cricket pitch at Penola. An accomplished herdsman and shearer, Balnaves took up the challenge of planting vineyards in 1971. Working under the tutelage of legendary Coonawarra winemaker Bill Redman, Balnaves immersed himself in the culture of the vine, ultimately establishing a grande marque of Coonawarra and securing the inaugural presidency of the Coonawarra Vignerons Association. He remains a lifelong member of the Penola Pipe Band. For those who like their wines structured yet satin, powerful yet prettily perfumed, in the mouthfillingly muscular Coonawarra way, the Balnaves brand endures in the tradition of world class vintages grown to Terra Rosa soils, enriched by generations of happy and healthy Coonawarra sheep..

Discovered by Dr Bertel Sundstrup in 1987, after a long search for the perfect site, the amphitheatre known as Dalrymple is a mere twelve hectares of sun drenched bucolic idyll, at the very heart of superior viticulture on the beauteous Apple Isle. This is Piper's Brook central, a place of auspicious winegrowing climes, long hours of sunlight and extended ripening seasons, which yield fruit of remarkable succulence, gracious acids and satin tannins. Dalrymple are a small, unincorporated winegrowing concern, whose accord with the elements and devotion to the land, are best articulated by the leisured pursuits of their chief vigneron, whose favourite pastimes are sheep herding, river fishing and making smoked goose sausages. The wines of Dalrymple Estate have established a quiet repute amongst devotees of the more elegant Tasmanian styling, enduring exemplars of delicacy, effortless refinement and the most exquisite balance, eloquent of a magnificent terroir...

Pinot Noir Central Otago New Zealand
A single magnificent parcel of Pinot Noir vines, planted to the gravelly Lochar soils of a rocky knoll on Amisfield Block in Central Otago 1. The parched plantings send their roots deep into the inhospitable terrains, struggling for water and yielding meagre harvests of the most intensely flavoured fruit.

Grapes are all hand picked, some whole bunches are included and a component of the wine begins its ferment amongst the vines. A month of cold macerations and natural indigenous yeast vinification is followed by a gentle press into a selection of seasoned and new French oak barriques for completion of malolactic, a judicious term of age, rack and return, before bottling, unfiltered and unfined.
Deep dark beetrot red. Complex bouquets, layers of dark berries and red fruit intertwine with delicate spice. The palate exhibits marvelous power and restraint, a lineal backbone of vibrant acidity in support of a broad mouthfilling, textural canopy of savoury varietal fruits, fine black velvet tannins in support, simply an action packed palate before a lengthy, undulating finish.
