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..

Dalrymple Sauvignon Blanc CONFIRM VINTAGE

Sauvignon Blanc Pipers Brook Tasmania
Nestled within a cocoon of mixed vegetation and rolling hills, Dalrymple enjoys a unique and seductive aspect shared by only a few boutique vineyards littering Tasmania's Pipers River region. Discovered by Dr Bertel Sundstrup in 1987 after a long search for the perfect site, this small mature vineyard is now owned by the Hill Smith family and produces some of Australia's most distinctive cool climate, regional wines. Dalrymple is a textural Sauvignon Blanc, refined and exquisitely balanced, aromatic yet pleasingly dry, generous with ripe cumquat flavours.

The unique topography and lush vegetation around Dalrymple's vineyards mean that very few blocks require irrigation. The fruit is ripened on the vine until luscious characters of passionfruit and spice evolve. Sauvignon Blanc is sourced from a number of Tasmanian vineyards, including Coal River valley, the White Hills region of Tamar Valley and Dalrymple's own Block K, all assembled with a view to retaining the different flavour spectrums of each parcel, to achieve a wine of great complexity. Each component is harvested and vinified separately with a variety of yeast strains and lees contact, aimed at contributing complexity and developing layers within the mouthfeel and palate.
Pale straw green in colour. Aromas of cut grass, crushed nettles and passionfruit skins mixed with wild notes from indigenous fermentation and extended lees stirring. The palate is as crisp and refreshing as a cold Tasmanian morning, with a fleshy texture and long lasting, mouth watering acidity that gives the wine incredible length. Perfect alongside seafood or shucked oysters.
