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 lamb. In between the paddocks, blocks of Sam.. The return of rootstock to garden of eden»

Massale is an assemblage of Pinot Noir parcels grown to Tuerong and Balnarring estate vineyards. Destemmed grapes and a component of whole bunches are indigenously vinified in open vats for up to three weeks without the introduction of any yeasts. Batches are treated to natural malolactic followed by a year's maturation in French oak barriques and larger format foudres, achieving a wine that's completely approachable in its youth.
A pretty purplish crimson colour. The nose speaks of bright red fruits, raspberries and cherry, then violet florals, dried meadow herbs and hints of cherry pip, oak and botanical spice. The palate is attractively brambly with a core of red fruits, fresh acidity, fine, graphite tannins and a savoury edge which balances the fruit. Massale is an elegant wine which will continue to evolve beautifully.
