Baileys of Glenrowan was one of the original pioneers of wine production in North-East Victoria and produced its first vintage in 1870. Since this time Baileys has become renowned for consistently producing intensely flavoured rich wines. Richard Bailey, the founder of Baileys of Glenrowan, brought his family to Australia in the 1850s. The family moved to North Eastern Victoria in the 1860s and Varley Bailey, Richard’s son, made the first Baileys wine in 1870. Since this time, the region has become world-renowned for its premium red and fortified wines. Baileys of Glenrowan continues to be recognised today as a world-class producer of full-flavoured red and luscious fortified wines. The fruit was sourced from the premium vineyards located at Glenrowan in the North-East of Victoria. The vines were all carefully pruned and monitored to ensure a balanced crop level.

Rich full palate with supple tannin rounding out the finish. Butter chocolate with savoury dark fruits filling the mouth; powerful and smooth.
Preceding years were stricken by drought leading to a low cropping early harvest. Early ripening ensures this wine was harvested well in advance of late rain ensuring maximum retention of flavour and brightness.
This wine was matured for 16 months in 90% American and 10% French (36% new, 64% seasoned) oak barrels.
