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
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.

Bowen hold a very strong belief in an old fashioned hand pruning of vines. Such care improves evenness of budburst, bunch exposure and ripeness, for restricted yields of the most intensely flavoured Cabernet Sauvignon. It is this special quality of fruit which translates into benchmark Coonawarra efforts. Shiraz grapes are harvested, crushed and vinified on skins for a term 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 lees solids and treated to an extended maturation in a selection of 225 litres French, American and European oak barriques.
 
Dark, almost black, scarlet purple. Bouquet rich in plum fruit characters and a hint of regional leafyness over spicey oak notes which add to the complexity. The opulent nature of Bowen Shiraz is evident from the moment it's poured into the glass. Ripe and generous, well rounded palate enhanced by elegant and finely balanced Coonawarra tannins, supported by fine oak.
