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..

Chardonnay, the dominant grape variety used in all Ruinart cuvees, is the very essence of the Ruinart taste. Grown in the Côte des Blancs and Montagne de Reims vineyards, this exceptionally high quality grape lends all its finesse, elegance and purity to the Ruinart champagnes. Over time, the exceptional qualities of the Chardonnay grape continue to work inside the Ruinart bottles and enable the champagne to be kept in optimum conditions. The remarkable qualities of the Premier Cru Chardonnay grape have given rise to what is now commonly called Goût Ruinart, an inimitable universally recognised taste which develops aromatic complexity over time.
Golden yellow, very fine long lasting pearl. Clean, intense first nose, rich notes of brioche, French toast and roasted almonds. Very supple and harmonious palate, well balanced, rich and suave with soft honey flavours, minerality and a long sustained finish. Chardonnay illuminates Ruinart, heightens the sparkle and imparts characteristic regal splendour.
