2017 Eldorado Rd 'Perseverance' Glenrowan Shiraz
Paul and Laura Dahlenburg have spent a career making wine and tending to the vineyards of others. In 2010 Eldorado Rd was born. Their vineyard is in the town of Eldorado (between Beechworth & Wangaratta). Paul has been the chief winemaker at Baileys for decades and he makes theses wines with his son, Ben.
The fruit for this wine comes off a single vineyard, planted in 1890. It is a tribute to the perseverance of these remarkable old vines having made the voyage by sea as rootlings from France to Glenrowan back in the late 1800’s. The vineyard has a small patch of Trebbiano planted and it is co-fermented with the Shiraz.
