Balnaves

5 Star Winery - Halliday Wines Companion

"Grapegrower, viticultural consultant and vigneron, Doug Balnaves has over 70ha of high quality estate vineyards. The wines are invariably excellent, often outstanding, notable for their supple mouthfeel, varietal integrity, balance and length; the tannins are always fine and ripe, the oak subtle and perfectly integrated. Coonawarra at its best." James Halliday

"Balnaves of Coonawarra Vineyard was established in 1975, and is situated at the southern end of the Coonawarra Terra Rossa strip. The Balnaves family have been associated with the district since 1855 with the first wines under the Balnaves of Coonawarra label being produced in 1990. We aim to produce consistently high quality wines from fruit sourced from our own Coonawarra vineyards, reflecting the unique flavours, character and quality of fruit grown in this area, as well as the variation of seasons in this cool climate area. We remain fully committed to a high level of 'hands-on' involvement and look forward to sharing our passion with you." - Balnaves
