Coonawarra graziers have access to the finest soils for viticulture. Doug Balnaves was born in the very heart of Coonawarra, quite near the sacred cricket pitch at Penola. An accomplished herdsman and shearer, Balnaves took up the challenge of planting vineyards in 1971. Working under the tutelage of legendary Coonawarra winemaker Bill Redman, Balnaves immersed himself in the culture of the vine, ultimately establishing a grande marque of Coonawarra and securing the inaugural presidency of the Coonawarra Vignerons Association. He remains a lifelong member of the Penola Pipe Band. For those who like their wines structured yet satin, powerful yet prettily perfumed, in the mouthfillingly muscular Coonawarra way, the Balnaves brand endures in the tradition of world class vintages grown to Terra Rosa soils, enriched by generations of happy and healthy Coonawarra sheep..

There has been a slight, but significant refinement in the style of Moss Wood Semillon, but ultimately, it is the pursuit of excellence which determines the viticulture and handling of fruit. Grapes are hand picked and delivered to the winery, de-stemmed, crushed and pressed. The free runs are cold settled for two days, clear juices are racked into fermenters, a small portion of solids are reintroduced. Pure yeast cultures are added batches are vinified at 17C for a fortnight. Pressings are fined and settled, clear juices are racked and seeded for a separate, pure yeast fermentation. After a week of settling on gross lees, the two components are racked and assembled before a light fining, depending on vintage.
Medium straw colour, with green tints. Fresh fruit aromas of grapefruit, apples and fig. Strong notes of pear and musk, enhanced by background notes of caramel and lanolin. Classic Moss Wood Semillon, combining crisp acidity with full body and a slight firmness of tannin on the finish. The middle palate has ripe apple, fig and pear flavours giving a generous, almost sweet feel, despite the wine is pleasingly dry.
