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..

Xavier Bizot can make wine anywhere he pleases, he is a Bollinger and grew up amongst the Vignobles Superieurs of Champagne. Bizot has chosen to make wine alongside Brian Croser's family, from grapes harvested off three magnificent sites, on two paradoxically varied terrains. Planted to the salubrious Terra rosa soils atop an invaluable archeological dig at Wrattonbully, rich with the undisturbed fossils of ancient Cenozoic sea animals, Crayeres Vineyard was established right across the road from Tapanappa's illustrious Whalebone. The weather here is astonishingly similar to Bordeaux and makes an awesome Cabernet Franc. Xavier Bizot and Lucy Croser are also fortunate to take their pick of properties in Adelaide Hills. To wit, Charles (Chilly) Hargrave's distinguished old vines at Summerton and a highly opportune slice.. The twin tales of terre a terre»

The granitic island where Leeuwin vineyard is located, has weathered over millions of years and provides ancient free draining gravel soils, which are highly complementary to the culture of the vine, as well as promoting great finesse in the wine. Leeuwin's rainfall is dictated by the Roaring Forties which move north in winter and south in summer. With oceans on three sides, fluctuating water temperature by two degrees between summer and winter, the district has its own microclimate. Leeuwin's vineyards are therefore protected from extremes of temperature, frost free during the critical spring growing period. An average year in Margaret River equates to vintages Bordeaux can enjoy only occasionally.
Fresh vibrant pale straw, lime green edges. Bouquet shows lemon sherbet and lime, green pineapple and crisp golden delicious apples.

Great intensity of flavour with lemon and lime the most dominant before a refreshing finish of green apples. Fine racy acidity, a very long, lingering finish.
