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»
Just a few kilometres north of Lowburn, near the windswept shores of frigid Lake Dunstan, atop the parched and laborious terroirs of Central Otago, a high country merino stud between the Amisfield and Parkburn streams was sown to vineyards two decades ago. Grazing country makes magnificent viticulture, the austere alluvial and glacial schist soils now yield the quality of Pinot Noir which has defined Central Otago as the world's most demonstrable marque in full bodied, intensely complex, yet beguilingly seamless Pinot Noir. The challenging terraces which spiral around the fractious knolls of Amisfield Vineyard, sire a sensational range of wines defined by.. Satiations from the nethermost regions»
Airline pilots make surprisingly good wine. Their appreciation of the sciences, a respect for the weather and a bird's eye view of the land, all invaluable to the winemaker's art. John Ellis would take every opportune weekend away from his regular New York Paris route, to pursue a passion for viticulture. He planted the first commercial Cabernet Merlot vines in the Hamptons and found time between trans atlantic flights to work vintages amongst the Grand Cru vineyards of La Bourgogne. Ellis ultimately made the great lifelong sea change in favour of our land downunder. He settled on a farmstead outside Leongatha, amongst the slow ripening pastures of Gippsland..

Jack Mann reigns eternal as the greatest winemaker in the history of the Australian west. Jack Mann's son Tony grew up amongst the vineyards of Houghton but took a keener interest in things Cricket. He exelled at both pursuits but is best remembered as the legendary leg spinner Tony Rocket Mann. During his off seasons away from the pitch, Tony would plant parcels of vine alongside his illustruious father Jack and his own young son Robert. The fully grown Robert now makes his own wine, from fruit of the very vines sown by Jack and Tony Mann. Robert learned from his grandfather that great winemaking required a spiritual oneness with nature. The birds and the.. Whence the west was won»

Chardonnay Yarra Valley Victoria
One of Victoria's, indeed the nation's, first ever Chardonnay, the ancient plots at Yering Station are still producing grapes which form the backbone to some of the most enduring Yarra Valley vintages. There are a number of Yering Station editions of Chardonnay each year, even within the precious old vineyards there are unique individual microclimes, determining each parcel's eligibility for inclusion. Priority is given to limiting yields, thereby optimising flavour. A rich course of wild yeast oak barrel ferments achieves a big, golden Chardonnay wine.

Yering Station Chardonnay showed extremely well at Paris Wine Exhibitions of the 1800s. William Ryrie pioneered grape growing in Victoria circa 1838, planting the first vines at Yering Station. The historic Old Winery Building originally housed some very advanced winemaking equipment imported from France. Today's Yering Station is vinified from parcels of hand picked fruit, off a mixture of clones P58, 76, 95 and Mendoza, up to thirty years of age, planted to grey loam over yellow clay soils, trained to trellis VSP. Inoculated to a mix of wild and cultured yeasts, barrel fermented for a fortnight and matured nine months in new and seasoned, 228 & 500 litres French oak barrels.
Light field straw hues. Intense mixture of white peaches and pear coupled with a creamy barrel ferment nuttiness. Fresh and inviting, a citrus backbone provides support for the fresh stone fruits. The underlying vanillin oak adds complexity bringing a pure centre and finishing with a fine line. Match to whiting caprice or an asparagus and chicken caesar.
