    • Background

      The Balnaves Coonawarra Vineyard was established in 1975, and is situated at the southern end of the Coonawarra Terra Rossa strip. The family, which has been associated with the district since 1855, remains fully committed to a high level of ‘hands-on’ involvement.

    • Winemaking

      Balnaves have selected Cabernet Sauvignon parcels showing more complex characters with elegant structure for our Sparkling Cabernet Sauvignon. Blended from eleven different vintages selected from 2014-1995, this wine has been matured in an old French oak solera prior to tirage in September 2014. The solera provides complexity and maturation with-out oaking the wine. Disgorged in December 2014, with a small dosage of vintage port to again add lift and complexity.
