Right next to the Merry Widow Inn at Glenrowan, infamous of Kelly gang folklore, Richard Bailey set up shop to service prospectors during the great Victorian gold rush of the 1860s. Rows of newly planted Shiraz soon followed and the Baileys released their first vintage in 1870. The region was ultimately infected by the terrible vine killing plague of the 1890s, a guarded blessing for Glenrowan, which elevated the quarantine status of its vitiated vineyards to a marque of the highest provenance. Baileys endure as one of the new world's most arcane and mythical wineworks, a small estate of historically significant parcels, producing limited vintages, defined by their exceptional value, purity of parentage and wondrous regional..

Ellis ultimately made the great lifelong sea change in favour of our land downunder. He settled on a farmstead outside Leongatha, amongst the slow ripening pastures of Gippsland and established a vineyard called Bellvale.

Shiraz Clare Valley South Australia
Reilly's are a highly esteemed Clare Valley operation with a history that dates back to early settlement. While it's not quite the complete limerick, there once was a man named Reilly, who cobbled and made wine on the sly. Mr Reilly's descendants still own and operate the grounds, initially treading grapes and bottling small amounts for family and friends. The quality of the family Ardill's limited editions created its own demand and Reilly Wines were born. Two years French oak, a powerful Shiraz of immense concentration and dizzying levels of alcohol.

A long lingering finish completes an extraordinary wine.
