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..

Jane Mitchell is one of Clare Valley's leading wine industry identities, Clare Valley Legend and Clare Valley Winemakers Hall of Fame, Centenary Federation of Australia Medal, SA Tourism Commission, Australian Regional Winemakers Forum, Wine Federation of Australia Council and Australian Wine and Brandy Corporation Board. Mitchell's largest vineyard is at Watervale, a very bleak place in the middle of winter at pruning time. It is known by the vineyard workers as Alcatraz, a place to do penance in the cold, wind and rain of a Clare Valley winter. Alcatraz only ever yields minimal harvests, source of the most memorable vintages in our nation's.. These old clare valley vines are just getting better»

Tim Adams Aberfeldy CONFIRM VINTAGE

Shiraz Clare South Australia
Excellent Langtons Classification. When the Birks of Wendouree settled Valley Clare in 1904, they planted their site to Shiraz. Many of these old vines remain productive and offer the backbone of fruit for the icon Tim Adams Aberfeldy. Younger rootings of the same clone yield grapes of the most intense colour, depth of flavour and refined tannins. The intense perfume and muscular nature of the finished wine reflects the character of site as much as the charm and personality of the animated and affable winemaker.

Sourced from the superlative Aberfeldy vineyard, owned by Jim McDowell and Anne Brown, a unique site of friable red loam over limestone, at the bottom of the eastern hills in Clare Valley, cropped to a mere 1½ tonnes per acre. Aberfeldy has long been synonymous with quality, the Tim Adams flagship wine. Year after year, Aberfeldy continues to deliver the finest construct of Clare Valley Shiraz. Parcels of fruit are fermented to dryness and kept on skins for a fortnight before pressing and returning. Components are treated to twenty four months in completely new French and American oak hogsheads under the Tim Adam cellars before assemblage, fining and filtration.
Vibrant magenta colour. Aromas of cherry and plum, dark berries and chocolate, complemented by oak derived cinnamon and clove, nutmeg and vanilla. The palate is full bodied with dark berry conserve flavours, balanced oak, tannin and acidity. Aberfeldy shows persistent sweet fruit and oak aftertaste, power and finesse.
