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..

Cognac Brandy
Originally created in 1920 by Georges Hine for his family and close friends to enjoy. A fine accord of over forty Eaux de Vie, all aged a minimum of ten years, assembled exclusively from grapes grown to Grande Champagne, the finest cru of Cognac. A double microdistillation on sedimentery lees, progressively eliminates all but the most elite components. The finest Limousin and Troncais oak barrels are delicately toasted to infuse the ageing Cognac with a richness of chocolate, honey and vanilla characters.

François and Robert Hine were inspired by the beauty of a unique crystal decanter to bottle their flagship Cognac. Antique went on to become a huge success. Ninety years later, the House of Hine reinterprets Antique, now an XO Premier Cru, from fruit grown to undulating vineyards in Lignères Sonneville and Criteuil La Magdeleine, Touzac and Bonneuil. Hine's distinguished Cellar Master has achieved the perfect harmony through an assemblage of over forty Cognacs, of which the youngest are aged at least ten years and the oldest several decades.
Deep dark golden amber hue. A sensory journey, complex, rich and long persistent aromas of vanilla and honey, baked apple and spice before hints of liquorice and leather. Rich and rounded, lovely rancio on both nose and palate, deeper and more complex than its peers, it’s immediately identifiable by a unique raisiny concentration, with an unobtrusive touch of oak that holds the noble blend together.
