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.. The old sheep shearer's shanty»
There were two scrub covered parcels of land, just outside Pokolbin village along McDonalds Road, that local council had long set aside for use as cricket ground and cemetery. Both were ultimately auctioned off to the highest bidders and sown to vine. A third undeveloped site became the subject of a long running feud among the new and old neighbours. Dodgy invoices between the rivals were exchanged and the division of firewood became a further cause of contention. A truce was eventually called by the two protagonists, Brokenwood and Hungerford Hill, for the sake of healthy viticulture. The nascent blocks achieved international renown as the eminent Cricket..

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.

In 1998 the venerable Henriot of Champagne acquired the estate.

The success that Chablis has enjoyed over the centuries is due in no small part to the extreme variations of temperature. Also critical to their distinct character is the marriage between Chardonnay and local terroir. A matrimony of rich fruit and effulgent minerality, the wines express themselves in four appellations, Petit Chablis being the tinyest at 650 hectares. Grapes are hand picked and put in small crates, the bunches are rigorously sorted out, pressings are short, the must carefully settled and a fine balance is established according to the vintage for the balance of vinification between vat and cask. The proportion of new oak is kept at a minimum to avoid dampening the subtle variations of terroir.
Pale straw hue. Fruity and floral bouquets, great freshness and lovely mineral notes, hazelnuts and hay. Magic in the wine's ability to express the uniqueness of Chablis, flavours flow freely onto the palate, long dry flinty fruit, lean and crisp. A light bodied and lively wine, inimitably suited to the best seafood, especially oysters.
