Balnaves Of Coonawarra

Balnaves of Coonawarra

The Tally Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2008

As per previous notes. Dense crimson in colour. Cedar, blackberry and geranium. To borrow HH’s phrase “effortless style”. Demonstrates why Coonawarra’s red dirt is marvellous for Cabernet. 96% Cabernet 4% Petit Verdot. The Tally is the top Cuvée from Balnaves. Rich, medium to full bodied. — a month ago

Bin 128 Coonawarra Shiraz

In pretty good shape at 22years old, just a tinge of brown to the color. Soft dry dusty tannin underpins the palate with plenty of fruit still evident. Very pleasant on a Saturday night slowly sipped over 4 hours. — 3 months ago

Tempus Two

Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

Friday night and watching Dirty Harry Magnum force!. "You've got to ask yourself a question: 'do I feel lucky? ... well yes actually! Complete stumble... into man’s territory. Relax my female and not so female friends. Just loving the 70s jive......
Bugger me Australia pulled out all the stops tonight. They hate France and they feel inferior to to the West Coast USA but in this everyday winner they’re beating them all. Less that £20 ($30) and no mistake, this is a great Friday night in front t of the TV (by yourself) bottle. This is not pretending to be nice, not socially aware. This is strong, brave and naughty, just like our Harry! Got a gun, use it! I’m aware a year in the wilderness since my last post but this is worth writing about. Quickly regarding Delectable, I photo my wines and I watch you girls and boys regarding the food bad and the ugly. Writing reduces the drinking but sometimes it’s good to contribute.

Bin 407 Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

A multi region blend, fruit from Barossa, McLaren Vale, Padthaway, Coonawarra and Wrattonbully vineyards, some bin 707 fruit included. Deep Ruby with aromas of dark berry fruits herb and spice. On the palate black cherry and currants with notes of cacao, espresso and herb pepper. Vivid acidity, ripe fine tannins, long finish ending with vanilla oak and spice, very nice! — 2 months ago

Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

Brooding black currant, cedar, eucalyptus, dusty dark chocolate, grippy tannins. An animal hint on the nose. There’s a dark, elegant richness that’s neatly structured. Still years ahead of it. — 2 months ago
