At latitude 45 degrees south, Central Otago is the southernmost wine region in the world. Snow topped mountains, rocky ranges and dry tussock hills, a place of climatic extremes, bitterly cold winters, parched soils and discouragingly poor fertility. Designed by the angels in heaven for sublime and stupendous vintages of Pinot Noir. At the very epicentre of the most desirable confluence in Central Otago microclimes is Nanny Goat Vineyard.

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»

Xanadu's auspicious mesoclime enjoys an abundant supply of water that nourishes the grapes, the fortunate vines are sheltered by forests of magnificent marri trees. Grapes are crushed and destemmed before a predominantly small batch vinification in static fermenters for seven to eight days at 24°C to 26°C. The cap is managed to a combination of aerative pumpovers and regular plunging by hand. Upon completion, a third of components are treated to a period of extended maceration on skins before a gentle pressing and course of malolactic. Xanadu is matured fourteen months in a high proportion of new French oak, followed by assemblage and return to oak for two months before bottling.
Deep red with garnet hues. Ripe fruits of the forest, boysenberries and cassis integrated with dark chocolate, cinnamon and spice. Full bodied yet refined, the plush palate offers ripe, jubey fruits such as blackcurrants, plums and mulberries framed by subtle cedar/ spicy oak characters. A Cabernet that's dense and well structured, layered with dark fleshy fruit characteristics, ripe tannins and a lingering finish.
