Balnaves Of Coonawarra The Tally Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2004
"The Balnaves family, Coonawarra and Cabernet Sauvignon are concentric circles, indivisible from one another,” declares James Halliday. So true: they’re Coonawarra to the core. Doug Balnaves and children Kirsty and Pete were all born in Penola and the winery sits at the heart of the famous Terra Rossa strip, where Doug started planting vines in 1976. Former Qantas Winemaker of the Year Pete Bissell is the other essential piece of the puzzle, helping this producer to the title of James Halliday Winery of the Year in 2008.
An extra degree of fragrance above others of the year; while full-bodied, also has a dimension of elegance the others don't have; very sophisticated oak handling, long finish. Drink by: 2025; Date Tasted: March 2006; Alcohol: 14.5%; Rating: 96 Points; James Halliday Wine Companion
