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

The story of Langmeil begins with early Barossa settlement, planted to Shiraz by Christian Auricht in the 1840s, the estate vineyards were restored by the Lindner and Bitter families during the 1990s. Some of Herr Auricht's original plantings are still in production, three and a half priceless acres of gnarled, dry grown vines which provided the cuttings for much of Langmeil's refurbished heirloom parcels. A princely range of old, to very old single vineyard wines, delineated by the eloquence of each unique site, defined by the provenance of history and pioneer folklore. Saved from the ravages of time by the hand of providence and generations of dedicated Barossa growers... The legacy landscapes of langmeil»

Petaluma Hanlin Hill Riesling CONFIRM VINTAGE

Riesling Clare South Australia
From an almost perfect Riesling vineyard, careful pruning, sorting and selection, ensures that only the healthiest grapes are included. One of Australia's perennially feted Riesling, from fruit picked off old vines on Petaluma's Hanlin Hill Vineyard, planted in 1968 to the most easterly slope and highest aspects in all of Valley Clare. Late picked for optimal flavour development, yet paradoxically elegant and dry, the ideal choice to accompany grilled whiting, cornish hen or the traditional Coquilles St Jacques.

Established by Brian Croser in 1976, Petaluma are one of Australia's most eminent labels and artisanal crafters of flagship white wines. Hand picked grapes are transported to the Petaluma winery in Piccadilly Valley and processed immediately. Bunches are de-stemmed, the berries gently crushed, chilled to less than 5C and treated to a Willmes tank press. The free run juices are cold settled in tank and clarified without filtration. This bright, clear juice is then racked into fermenters and inoculated to a choice Petaluma yeast. A cool fermentation at 10C to 13C ensues over the next several weeks, at sugar dryness, the finished Hanlin Hill is chilled before a gentle filtration to bottle.
Light, pale straw in colour. Lovely bright floral aromas of lemon blossom and passionfruit are backed up on the palate by pristine, intense lemon/ limes, with some crunchy apple thrown in. Slatey minerality, a hallmark of the Hanlin Hill Vineyard for three decades, combined with high natural acidity to produce a wine that is very drinkable in its youth, while offering all the qualities of a great, long lived Clare Valley Riesling.
