19 Crimes Shiraz Durif 2012
Bailey’s of Glenrowan stands among Australia’s oldest and most storied wineries. It was established in 1870, by Richard Bailey –a former shop keep who supplied local gold miners. As the gold rush dried up, the resilient Bailey family turned to farming and established one of the region’s first vineyards in the harsh, unforgiving Victoria countryside.
Today, Bailey’s stands among Australia’s finest wineries. It’s here, through a combination of old-world techniques and contemporary skills that 19 Crimes is proudly produced.
Bailey’s also has its share of criminal history. It was in 1880 at Glenrowan – just a short distance from the winery – that notorious bushranger Ned Kelly was finally captured. Stories like Kelly’s define the rough and tumble upbringing of Australia. It’s from here that the inspiration for 19 Crimes was drawn. - Extract from Bailey's of Glenrowan's website
