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.

Opaquely dark purple red. Black cherry, boysenberries and cassis, varietal leaf, briar and olive notes. Immense concentration on the well proportioned, linear palate, black currants, loganberries and savoury reductions, supported by august tannins and a framework of flattering, amiable oak, its muscular profile lingers long on a finish of sour plum piquancy and dulcet, perfumed dark berry fruits.
