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.

Pemberton sits on the slow ripening southwest coast of Australia, fully blessed by the most appropriate climates and soil to make serious Sauvignon Blanc. The success of Australia's southwest regions are due in no small part to decades of viticulture by Capel Vale. Grapes from the cooler parts of Pemberton are harvested at optimum ripeness, crushed, de-stemmed and chilled. Juices are transferred to fermenters after three days cold settling and introduced to aromatic yeast. Vinifications are halted early to preserve natural grape sugars, adding body and enhancing fruit character in the finished wine.
Limpid pale straw green colour. Fine gravelly mineral aromas of Pemberton soils, citrus and cut grass, snap bean and snow pea working against a backdrop of mineral elements, kiwi and herbaceousness. The aromas are carried through to the textured palate, complemented by flavours of honeydew melon, tropical fruits, limes and flint. Match with grilled snapper, sashimi or goats cheese and truffle omelet.
