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..

Kahurangi means a treasured possession, precious jewel, pale greenstone and/or blue sky. Trout Valley wines are sourced from superior vineyards along the Nelson, each with their own characteristic style of fruit. Skillfully vinified and artfully finished, they ensure consistent quality from vintage to vintage. Fruit is harvested from vines on the Waimea Plains, planted to Moutere clay and free draining, stony alluvial soils. Sauvignon Blanc grown here achieves classic varietal flavours and bright, virile bouquets. Bunches are crushed, inoculated to choice yeasts and treated to a cool, temperature controlled vinification to preserve freshness and retain essential fruit characters.
Clear greenish hues. Herbaceous and tropical fruit aromas on the nose. Scents of lychee and grass congeal with currants, lemon and snow pea. The palate is dominated by gooseberry, grapefruit and citrus flavours over fine textures and mouthfeel. This distinctively Nelson influenced Sauvignon Blanc culminates in a clean and lingering, well balanced, satisfying finish.
