Balnaves Tally Cab Sauv 2008 - Dec 2016 Decanter review

 

The Balnaves family vineyard is situated at the southern end of the famous Coonawarra 'Terra Rossa' strip. Planted in 1975, the vineyard is 48 hectares in size and has been in the family for three generations. The predominant variety planted is Cabernet Sauvignon. Winemaker Pete Bissell was the Qantas Winemaker of the Year 2005 and Balnaves was James Halliday's Winery of the Year in 2008.

 

Doug Balnaves was a shearer of Merino sheep. A shearer in Australia is paid by the number of sheep he shears. Counted every two hour period, the Tally is recorded in the Tally book. The higher the Tally, the greater the recognition among his peers for skill and hard work. As an expression of this tradition, the Balnaves family see the wine 'The Tally' as the ultimate achievement for their company.

 

The nose is lifted with perfumed red berries, violets and wild blackberry fruit coming from the Petit Verdot. The palate is medium bodied and restrained in style with tight dense fruit and a modulated structure showing balance and depth of fruit, flowing onto a long finish of chewy tannins. This is a compact but deeply flavoured Tally.

Battle Of Bosworth Cabernet Sauvignon 2014 (1x75cl)

Battle of Bosworth is one of the most exciting producers from the McLaren Vale, owing its fame to a series of outstanding single-vineyard wines made from estate-grown fruit. Owner, Joch Bosworth, is regarded as a brilliant organic farmer as well as a top class winemaker, and the Bosworth vineyards are among the most beautiful we have ever seen. Joch plays down his impeccable green credentials, arguing that he is doing nothing new: ‘A lot of what we do in the vineyard is simply old-fashioned grape growing; essentially, our vineyards are run as they would have been 50 years ago before synthetic pesticides and fertilizers became available.’

A pretty little flower called the soursob is Joch’s partner in crime to combat weeds. So important is the soursob that it features on the Battle of Bosworth labels, too.

The winemakers at Battle of Bosworth use traditional tried and tested wine making techniques year in and year out. They pick the Cabernet when it is flavour and sugar ripe, then crush it and ferment it in small open vessels. Fermentation finishes in barrel using mainly old oak (about 70%) and the balance in new mainly French hogsheads (300l) barrels. They then blend back some of the cordon cut, vine dried Cabernet to the wine just prior to bottling, a practise which has been undertaken since they began making the wine.

The Battle of Bosworth Cabernet has red/ black fruits on the nose, so think redcurrants blackberries and blackcurrants. There is a freshness which verges on mint. Overall the wine is lively and medium-bodied and very fresh. It has a structured but accessible palate and for those that have patience it will cellar very well, but if you haven’t got time for all that waiting, it will drink well now. Decanting before drinking would be a good idea to give the wine some air and give it time to release all of those aromas….

Cape Mentelle Cabernet Sauvignon/Merlot 2013 (1x 75cl)

Deep, rich violet. Delicious blackcurrant and dark cherry aromas waft over an undercurrent of cinnamon and cloves.

The tannins are dusty and focused providing great structure and length.
