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.

Lindsay and Margaret McCall began their incredible journey in 1984, with the purchase of a derelict orchard on Paringa Road at Red Hill. Their requirements included north facing slopes, a permanent running creek and adequate wind protection. The vines were established to a distinctly unique Lyre or U trellis system, employing an elaborate steel frame assembly. The site is now producing harvests of Mornington Peninsula's finest fruit. Bunches of Shiraz are destemmed into traditional, two tonnes open top fermenters. Upon completion, batches are racked to a selection of seasoned and new French oak barriques for eighteen months maturation.
