Samuel Smith migrated from Dorset England to Angaston in the colony of South Australia circa 1847, he took up work as a gardener with George Fife Angas, the virtual founder of the colony. In 1849, Smith bought thirty acres and planted vines by moonlight, the first ever vintages of Yalumba. One of his most enduring legacies were some unique clones of Shiraz, which were ultimately sown to the illustrious Mount Edelstone vineyard in 1912. Angas's great grandchild Ron Angas acquired cuttings from the Edelstone site and migrated the precious plantings to his pastures at Hutton Vale. The land remains in family hands, a graze for flocks of some highly fortunate.. The return of rootstock to garden of eden»

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.

Henschke Julius Eden Valley Riesling CONFIRM VINTAGE

Riesling Eden Valley South Australia
Cyril Henschke developed a reputation for premium Riesling wines as early as the 1950s, after a series of memorable vintages fashioned from fruit grown to splendid Eden Valley vineyards. The dry, food oriented styles of Springton and Keyneton are naturally endowed with a capacity to evolve delicious toasty marmalade flavours. The mesoclimes are blessed with ideal ripening conditions which form intensely flavoured esters in the grapes. Julius has been named for a Henschke ancestor, a highly acclaimed artist and sculptor.

George Crossman Thyer purchased a property at the top of a range overlooking Eden Valley in 1877, from a tract of land granted to George Fife Angas, in a fertile area called Flaxmans Valley. It was transferred in 1912 to Joseph Hill Thyer, who pioneered the first vines on this property. Cyril Henschke purchased the property from his son Kenneth Crossman Thyer in 1966, and established a large planting of predominantly Riesling at a time when it was scarce and bonuses were being paid by large wineries. The vineyard is planted on sandy loam over gravel and bedrock, with patches of clay. Julius is vinified in controlled fermenters, bottled unwooded and unaged, to capture and express the quality of fruit.
Pale straw with green hues. Intense lemon and lime zest, green peppercorns and distinct minerality behind lifted floral notes. Concentrated lime flavours accented by cardamom spice. The textured palate shows concentrated pure sweet lime flavours; beautifully balanced with crisp acidity and minerality for a long, focused finish.
