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 their exceptional value, purity of parentage and wondrous regional..

The site supervisor was Peter Lehmann and young Graeme had his epiphany on the road to Barossa Valley. Lehmann suggested that Graeme change his name to Charlie and take the pilgrimmage to Vallee Rhone. Charlie became prepossessed with the culture of old vines Grenache, Shiraz and Mourverdre.

Fully mature vines, cooler sites and access to crucial water gives Mountadam the edge. Chardonnay is sourced from the Mountadam estate property near the historic Boehm Springs Reserve, a nesting ground for Wedge Tail Eagles, the Mountadam logo. Sitting at an altitude of over 400 metres above sea level the vines grow in quartz rich sandy loams formed from the underlying schist bedrock. Picking grapes throughout the cool of early morning followed by a gentle pressing and a long cool four weeks of fermentation with natural cultured yeast helps retain maximum grape flavours. Parcels are selected which can best display the intensity of Chardonnay within the context of a vibrantly unoaked wine.
A pale green colour. Aromas of tropical fruit, rich apricot and ripe nectarine, layered with the complexity associated from a traditional vinification. Intense lively aromas of ripe peach and melon carry through on the palate with distinctly fresh acidity typical of cool climate Chardonnay. A long finish with lingering fruit characters and racy acidity. To accompany chicken caesar or grilled fresh water fishes.
