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..

Airline pilots make surprisingly good wine. Their appreciation of the sciences, a respect for the weather and a bird's eye view of the land, all invaluable to the winemaker's art. John Ellis would take every opportune weekend away from his regular New York Paris route, to pursue a passion for viticulture. He planted the first commercial Cabernet Merlot vines in the Hamptons and found time between trans atlantic flights to work vintages amongst the Grand Cru vineyards of La Bourgogne. Ellis ultimately made the great lifelong sea change in favour of our land downunder. He settled on a farmstead outside Leongatha, amongst the slow ripening pastures of Gippsland and established a vineyard called Bellvale. It is now a place of fully mature vines and old world Burgundian techniques, sur lie et sauvage, barrel ferments and batonnage. Bellvale remains artisanally small batch, just 23 hectares of vine yields a measured harvest of spectacular quality Chardonnay and Pinot.. Placing pinot amongst the pastures»

Whilst the story of Moet Chandon dates back to the middle ages, it was not until an association with the Emperor Napoleon that Jean-Remy Moët became the most famous winemaker in the world, overwhelmed by international demand. To this day, spread out amongst a thousand hectares of the finest vineyards, Moet Chandon is the largest and most prestigious estate in Champagne, managing 200 of the 323 Crus of the region. The twenty eight kilometres of tranquil estate cellars are hewn out of the limestone stratas thirty metres directly below the historic estate Chateau at Epernay. Here the wines age slowly in naturally temperature controlled conditions within a network of galleries dating back to 1743.
Pale gold citrus hue, a fine effervescence. The epitome of subtlety, vinous without being green, buttery without being rich, tropically warm with a lime blossom attack. The palate is delicate and well balanced, creamy and rich, filling the tongue with highlights and leaving behind a sense of harmony, mellowness. Moët et Chandon is still today, and more than ever before, the symbol of pleasure, grandeur and pure celebration.
