Overview

Baileys of Glenrowan has some of Victoria’s oldest plantings of vines. After the devastation of phylloxera at the turn of the last century, the vines were replanted in the rich granite soil below the Warby Ranges. The Glenrowan region has long warm summers with very little rainfall, allowing fruit to develop intense flavours and high natural sugar levels. This wine was made from Muscadelle grapes sourced from the world renowned fortified wine region of North East Victoria.

After crushing and fermentation, individual parcels of Muscadelle were aged in various sized old oak. Our winemaker blended this wine from a selection of newer and aged stock to produce this fine fortified wine.
