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..

Grapes are crushed and treated to an air bag press in the protective presence of SO2. Enzyme is added and the juices cold settled over the course of a week before being racked off settled solids into fermenters and inoculated to choice yeasts. A long, cool vinification, pressings and free run are separately fermented, assembled back into the free runs for fining and cold stabilisation. Fermented to dry at less than a gram of sugar per litre, Tar & Roses is fashioned to a food friendly style of crisp fruit freshness and enhanced varietal complexity.
Pale gold hues. Lifted bouquet, overflowing with orange and quince blossom, hints of mint and thyme. An impeccably structured palate, lime cordial and apple pie, seasoned by a touch of clove, deliciously mouthfilling, lemon and lime flavours that take you all the way to a crisp, dry, lingering finish, refreshing, graceful yet substantial enough to serve alongside roast pork with the lot.
