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.

Dry grown Geisenheim and Rhine Riesling vines, established in 1988 and trained to Scott Henry vertical shoot trellis, planted to organically managed, rich ironstone gravels over loam and clay sub soils. The long slow ripening periods of Frankland River encourage maximum development of flavour while maintaining the distinctive racy acidity and dry finish for which Riesling is renowned. Grapes are pressed immediately and juices settled overnight, before being racked, aiming to minimise intervention, capturing the purest and finest expression of fruit grown to Isolation Ridge. The organically grown Riesling is treated to a cool vinification in a mix of fermenters and neutral oak at low temperatures of less than 14°C
Light green straw colour. Intense aromatics of ironstone flintiness, lashings of lime with lifted floral notes. Fine and elegant, yet fills the mouth with a concentrated mix of juicy lime and citrus notes followed by a core of spicy ironstone minerality. A generous mouth filling texture but with an underlying tightness showing length, balance and focus giving the wine personality and direction.
