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..

Returning to his home along the Nagambie Lakes after the completion of service during World War II, Eric Purbrick discovered a cache of wine, hidden circa 1876 under the family estate cellars. Though pale in colour, it was sound and drinkable after seven decades. The promise of long lived red wine inspired Purbrick to establish new plantings at Chateau Tahbilk in 1949, today they are some of Victoria's oldest productive Cabernet Sauvignon vines. Having barely scraped through the ravages of phyloxera and a period of disrepute, the fortunes of Tahbilk were turned around by Purbrick who was the first to market Australian wine under its varietal name. Tahbilk proudly hosts the largest, single holding of Marsanne on the planet. Tahbilk's original rows of Shiraz are commonly cited as one of the great vineyards of the world,..

Chardonnay is sourced from good growers who are fastidious about their canopy management, a practice that's necessary to produce high quality harvests from the rich and fertile volcanic soils. Moderate crop levels encourage grapes to ripen early and evenly, retaining fresh natural acidity. Harvested early in the vintage, grapes are gently handled and treated to a long, cool vinification for retention of flavour and to keep phenolics at bay, the majority in fermenters without any malolactic. Some components are filled to oak for a course of ferments in seasoned French barriques.
Pale straw with bright green hues. Fresh aromas of lemon and lime zest, ripe peach notes are overlaid by nougat and spice. The palate is generously layered with flavours of green tropical fruits and lime curd, creamily textured with just a hint of French oak, balanced by a refreshing citrus acidity at the finish.
