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..

Halls Gap Vineyard was planted 1969, along the steep eastern slopes and parched rocky crags of Grampians Ranges, at the very beginning of a renaissance in Victorian viticulture. Since early establishment in the 1860s by the noble Houses of Seppelt and Bests, the region had earned the most elite peerage, a provenance of extraordinary red wines, bursting with bramble opulence and lined with limousin tannins. The Halls Gap property had long been respected as a venerable supplier to the nation's most illustrious brands. Seppelt and Penfolds called on harvests from Halls Gap for their finest vintages. Until 1996, when it was acquired by the late, great Trevor Mast, who was very pleased to bottle Hall Gap's fruit behind the exhalted label of Mt Langi Ghiran. Halls Gap joined the tally of Circe estate vineyards in 2013, whence it yields a wine that's earmarked for icon status by.. Land of the fallen giants»

Established by Phillip Jones in 1979, the Bass Phillip property is located at Leongatha in the most southern part of Victoria, planted to closely spaced, north easterly facing vines, off an unirrigated four hectare site. All grapes are hand picked, minimal additives are employed, batches are innoculated with wild yeasts and boots are worn for a course of foot treading, to be vinified in an open fermenter with regular plunging to extract colour and flavour, followed by gravity fed transfer of the juices to avoid ripping the wine. An extended term on lees and up to eighteen months maturation in a combination of new and prior use lightly toasted French Alliers oak barriques, is followed by hand bottling without filtration.
Deep red colour. Rich bouquets of raspberry, deep, ripe and concentrated aromas of cherry, earth and musk. Fragrant, complex and dark cherry fruit on the palate, a gorgeous mouthful of mint and blackberry, liquorice and currant, nutmeg and spice. A powerful finish closes to long and lingering, densely packed fruit, withering tannins.
