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.. The bushranger's brew»
Returning to his home along the Nagambie Lakes after the completion of service during World War II, Eric Purbrick discovered a cache of wine, hidden circa 1876 under the family estate cellars. Though pale in colour, it was sound and drinkable after seven decades. The promise of long lived red wine inspired Purbrick to establish new plantings at Chateau Tahbilk in 1949, today they are some of Victoria's oldest productive Cabernet Sauvignon vines. Having barely scraped through the ravages of phyloxera and a period of disrepute, the fortunes of Tahbilk were turned around by Purbrick who was the first to market Australian wine under its varietal name.

Maxwell Four Roads Old Vine Grenache CONFIRM VINTAGE

Grenache McLaren Vale South Australia
Experience is a wonderful thing. After many generations of trial and error, the French have learned to make a delicious drink from a harvest of pure Grenache. Maxwell employ the same approach to create a juicy, rich red wine with a gossamer palate. Maxwell's old Grenache vines have grown for nine decades on a classic contoured hill with south facing aspect. They were bush vines with their thick trunks and sprawling arms until a few years ago when they were lifted up and put on a trellis wire to keep them ripening evenly as they grow older.

Named for the intersection of Olivers and Chalk Hill Road, Brewery Hill Road and Old Ellen Street upon which the Maxwell wineworks are situated. The property sprawls across the southern slope and crest of Lumb's Hill, amongst gently rolling hills just one mile north of McLaren Vale's Main Street. Planted to solid limestone soils, in close proximity to the moderating effects of Gulf of St Vincent, conditions in the vineyards are ideal for producing small quantities of intensely flavoured grapes. The sultry maritime climes achieve remarkable balance of sugar and acids, flavour and tannin. Following the vinification, Four Roads Grenache is matured for a year in a selection of seasoned French oak barrels.
Vibrant red cherry colour with bright pink hues. Aromas of maraschino cherry with white pepper spice and traces of musk. Medium bodied palate showing bright mixed red berry fruits balanced perfectly by savoury spice and hints of lavender on the back palate. Very much in the honest, hearty McLaren Vale style, a highly versatile wine to accompany many different cuisines and occasions, a great match with steak and onions.
