Vintage 2013 produced good crops and ripened late in April producing deeply flavoured fruit with fine tannins. The palate is medium bodied and fine, with fleshy cassis and blackberry fruit. The finish is long and textured with fine grainy tannins. This wine is complex and tightly structured, made to cellar with confidence and decant before drinking.
Among his many pursuits, 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. 18 consecutive years James Halliday 5 star winery, Langtons Outstanding listing 3rd year in a row and Pete Bissell, ASVO winemaker of the Year 2018.
