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..

Returned servicemen from the Great War could look forward to government grants of pastoral freehold. West Australia's Willyabrup Valley was such a place, just a short walk from the balmy beaches of Indian Ocean, it offered the veterans excellent potential for agriculture. The fertile lands of Sussex Vale were originally established to animal husbandry by the discharged troopers, generations of livestock enriched the soils and it was astutely sown to vines in 1973. Fortuitously placed at the very heart of the Australian west's most illustrious estates, it continued to occupy the thoughts of neighbouring Howard Park's chief winemaker, until he acquired the property and relaunched a softly spoken range of the most exquisite wines. Aspirants of the blue blooded styles from Margaret River will be delighted, redolent reds.. A better block on hay shed hill»

Peter Lehmann rightly espouses Barossa Semillon as a unique style, the estate is justly rewarded with a resource of the choicest vineyards. Lehmann has always had enormous faith in Barossa Semillon but it has been sorely challenged over the past thirty years. The commitment stands and some very old Semillon vines have been preserved. Released as a five year old, Margaret is a fruit driven, deliciously dry white which reflects Lehmann's passion. Grapes are picked early and vinified at lower temperatures for a fortnight, clarified and bottled immediately upon completion, unwooded and unoaked, followed by an extended cellaring.
Vibrant gold, tinges of green. Lively bouquet of lemon zest, lanolin and beeswax, lemongrass aromas and citrus acidity belie its age. Youthful and fresh, paradoxically shows remarkable complexity after five years in bottle, a zesty, tight mineral acidity, an effusive layered palate, pleasingly dry before an elongated, zesty finish. A superb accompaniment to scallops, fresh fishes and white meat roasts.
