Galway Pipe is named after Governor Sir Henry Galway, Governor of South Australia between 1914-1920. Governor Galway was a frequent visitor to the winery and on each visit he would conduct a tasting of the finest ?pipes? (500 litre barrels) of fortified tawny. Whichever pipe was most to his liking was inscribed as ?Galway?s Pipe? and that particular blend was used exclusively at Government House.

Alongside Don Bradman?s bat, Banjo Paterson?s notebook and Phar Lap?s saddle, the Galway Pipe Grand Tawny is an impressive addition to Australia?s icons. Full-bodied, deliciously textured and luscious, Galway Pipe is recognised as one of the best fortified?s in the world, ensuring Australia?s unique style of tawny holds its length on the international wine show arena.

This superior Grand Tawny displays a nose of raisins, dried pears, grilled nuts and spicy, dusty oak and is a rich garnet colour in the glass. The palate has balanced sweetness complemented by a good level of fresh acidity.

The result is a wine that has pronounced aged character but maintains freshness and a long dry finish, avoiding any cloying character.
