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
