Challenging aspects with breathtaking views of Cromwell Basin and Pisa Ranges, these are places defined by their fortuitous soils and favourable climes, tiny parcels of vine capable of just a few hundred cases each vintage, picked for their confluence of growing conditions and husbanded by a devout cadre. The winemaking is decidedly French, small vessels and wild yeasts, followed by an extended term on sedimentary lees for opulence.

Balnarring was established to vines in 1997 and welcomed into the Port Phillip fold ten years later, treated to the most exacting standards of environmentally friendly viticulture, plantings are all cane pruned and vertically shoot positioned. Parcels of destemmed and whole bunch fruit are treated to a mix of traditional large format wooden foudres and fermenters for maceration and inoculation to wild indigenous yeasts. After three weeks of ferment, batches are filled to a selection of seasoned and new French oak barriques for spontaneous malolactic and a year's maturation.
Vibrant garnet colour. Highly perfumed and complex with dark cherry, plum and violet aromas over underlying savoury notes. The palate exhibits a tight and focused core. Initial ripe strawberry and raspberry characters move into the deeper territory of black cherries, liquorice and a touch of tapenade, subtle meatiness adds complexity. Fine tannins balanced with a stony acidity lead to a long, powerful finish.
