Since the initial planting of vines, Balnaves vineyard has grown steadily and now covers a total of fifty six hectares of choice Coonawarra Terra Rossa, principally to Cabernet. The vineyard is divided into small blocks of between one and two hectares, the quality of wine from each block is evaluated each year and recorded. The final assemblage carries wines from the Dead Morris and Quarry blocks. Components were treated to barrel fermentation and/or an extended period of maceration. Balnave Cabernet has spent sixteen months maturing in a combination of tight grain French oak barrels from Seguin Moreau and St Martin cooperages.
 
Deep rich red in colour. Intense nose with aromas of cassis, liquorice and elderberry/ blue berry notes over subtle vanillan oak, showing cooler, more savoury characters. The palate is quite fine and elegant with ripe cassis/ seaweed fruit before a long and fine tannin finish. A deeply satisfying Coonawarra Cabernet upon release, Balnave will also reward careful cellaring. In either case a decant is recommended before service.

Bowen Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2010

A holistic management of the soils is crucial, all plantings are closely husbanded and individually managed, local fauna is encouraged to be a part of the ecosystem. It is this painstaking nurture of the vine which translates into an enduring quality of Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon.

Fruit is sourced exclusively from estate vines planted to Coonawarra's historic Terra rossa soils. Coonawarra Cabernet is famous for vibrant varietal aromas, big flavours and soft balanced tannins. Vines are hand pruned and trellised to the hanging cane method, allowing grapes full exposure to sunshine, enabling them to achieve optimal ripeness and full flavour. Grapes are harvested, crushed and vinified on skins over a course of several days. A third of the fruit is barrel fermented in new oak each year. Batches are monitored through to completion of malolactic, racked off settled solids lees and treated to an extended maturation in a selection of mainly French 225 litres oak barriques.
 
Brilliant, intense red colour. Wonderful rich blackberry aromas, intense and lively fruit perfumes leap out of the glass. The palate is classically structured, abundantly rich, sweet Cabernet Sauvignon flavours are supported by long, elegant Coonawarra tannins, finely balanced by the savoury smokey hints of French oak. Bowen Estate offers great lingering length and depth of palate, perfect for current drinking and will age with grace. Serve with red meat, ripe cheeses and richly seasoned game.
Bowen Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2015
Coonawarra
Available by the dozen
Excellent Langtons Classification. Exclusively estate grown Cabernet Sauvignon, one of Coonawarra's finest. The low yielding vineyard, planted to the magical Terra rossa soils, is dry grown and hand arch cane pruned, it traditionally yields limited crops of intensely flavoured fruit. Skilled use of traditional oaking techniques achieves a wine that's integrated and seamless, as delicate fine grain French oak supports the essential Coonawarra characters of violets and bramble berry, scorched earth and blueberry cassis perfumes.

Doug Bowen is one of Coonawarra's finest viticulturalists, he endeavours to restrict vine yield to a cropping level which ultimately delivers maximum quality in the finished wine. A regimen of tight pruning translates into long lived Cabernet Sauvignon, full bodied and offering great depth of flavour. The grapes are normally harvested and crushed within the hour, musts are inoculated and vinified in traditional fermenters at cooler temperatures. Upon completion and a course of malolactic, components are rack and returned into a selection of finely coopered French oak barriques for an extended maturation of up to twenty months, infusing remarkable complexity and finesse into the evolving wine.
 
Very intense deep colour reminiscent of blackberries. On the nose this strong wine shows superb Cabernet flavours of blackberries and mulberry with abundant new French oak flavours and toasty cigar oak nuances. The palate is weighty, supported by firm yet soft tannins. The clean varietal fruit characters leave a mark of distinction on the palate, a distinctive, highly regional, classic Coonawarraâ„¢ Cabernet to accompany beef, game dishes and aged cheeses.
