Today, Butchers Hill is the site of the steepest sloping vineyard in Coal River Valley, invigorated by afternoon sea breezes and prevailing winds from the roaring forties, its highly auspicious, self mulching black Vertosols, yield extraordinary wines. Established by founding members of the Hobart Beefsteak & Burgundy Club, Butchers Hill represents three generations of passion amongst the nether vineyards of the Apple Isle.

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..

Fruit is selected from a number of viticultural precincts, which provide a diversity of vineyard resources to construct a wine which defines the uniqueness of Pinot Gris. The aim is to include parcels which have achieved full flavour development whilst still retaining vibrant aromatics. Grapes are hand picked and held in a cold room for eighteen hours, before being whole bunch pressed to ensure minimal colour pick up from the slightly pink skins. Juices are clarified before a cool fermentation which captures the fresh flavours of this stylish and exotic grape. Unwooded and unoaked, bottled promptly after vinification to retain and express the defining elements of pure, varietal Pinot Gris.
A bright clean, pale straw colour. Complex aromas of stonefruits and grapefruit, citrus and spiced pears, herbs and nashi pears and lifted fresh florals of white flowers. Crisp, with nuts and citrus, a medium bodied wine, very soft and juicy, with a nutty, complex textured middle palate finishing on a note of sweetness and minerality. Just great by itself, goes perfectly with tempura and any other seafood or white meat.
