Baileys Glenrowan Baileys Rutherglen Durif CONFIRM VINTAGE

Durif Rutherglen Victoria

Baileys have assembled parcels from their Glenrowan property around a weighty backbone of Rutherglen fruit, a mouth filling accord of ripe flavours and assertive tannin grip, to satiate the most demanding Durif devotee.
