Region Glenrowan

Glenrowan, in Northeast Victoria, has a rich and colourful history owing to the infamy created by Australia’s most notorious bushranGermany Ned Kelly. Vines were first planted in 1866. The warm climate and rich, fertile red granitic soils was ideally suited to fortified wine production, which thrived for many years. Phylloxera arrived in the late 1800’s destroying the vineyard area. Today Glenrowan it is a small region comprised mainly of family owned vineyards and is best known for producing full-bodied robust Shiraz and fortified styles.

Langton’s Selections Bailey’s 1904 Block Shiraz, Bailey’s 1920s Block Shiraz Bailey’s at Glenrowan is located in classic bushranger country.

The overall profiles of these wines make them ideal secondary market staples, though they have yet to perform. Maybe that’s a good thing because they are bloody good value for those who cannot be bothered or cannot afford to be caught up in Robert Parker Jr.’s skewed enthusiasms. The Winemaker’s Selection Liqueur Muscat and Tokay are in every respect brilliant wines. The Muscat has that beautiful, burnished bronze colour with slightly green edges. Strong rancio characters pervade the wine, bringing utter joy. The Tokay shows more tea, leafy aromas and is decadent in flavour. Made using a Solera system, these wines are not vintage dated. Sadly, undated fortifieds lack value in the secondary market. They are beacons of quality nonetheless. Andrew Caillard MW, Langton's
