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 Smith's experimental vines yield a harvest of the most spectacular Shiraz to be found in all Eden Valley... The return of rootstock to garden of eden»
Kooyong Estate only make limited editions from tiny blocks of vine, a hectare or less, which yield deeply personal wines, highly eloquent of their terroir, aspect and clime. There are the pebbled ironstone soils of Farrago, which create an uncannily Burgundesque style of Chardonnay, redolent of grapefruits, mealy bran and wet flint. The precious half hectare at Faultline articulates the savouryness of seaweed and struck match. The sheltered lee of Haven Block encourages the grapes to bloom with chewy red jube characters. The windswept parcel at Meres infuses wonderfully perfumed rhubarb and ribena notes into a velvetine tannin structure. All are equally remarkable for their individuality, they speak of little places, husbanded to artisanal winemaking practices, the most wonderful expressions of Mornington... Venerable vintages from the most precious parcels»
Established 1908, Redman's Coonawarra are still made by the Redman brothers from fruit grown to the original family parcels. The tradition began 1901 when Bill Redman, at the tender age of fourteen, made the journey to take up an apprenticeship at the John Riddoch wineworks and to labour amongst Coonawarra's founding vineyards. Bill Redman's earliest vintages were sold off to other companies but it was not until 1952 that the Redman family released their own wines under the moniker Rouge Homme. Redman was finally branded under its own label in 1966, it remains one of the most enduring marques in Coonawarra. Husbanded by the 4th generation, parcels from the 1966 vines are assembled into the estate flagship The Redman... The velvet virtue of old coonawarra vines»

Langmeil Fifth Wave Grenache CONFIRM VINTAGE

Grenache Barossa South Australia
Planted to Grenache at a site very near Lyndoch in the 1950s, the Fifth Wave block was rediscovered by Langmeil winemaker Paul Lindner in 1999, he persuaded the proprietors to rejuvenate the property and release their next vintage as a pure Old Vine Garden Grenache. The hand picked parcels are treated to a traditional old world winemaking, gentle de stemming of fruit, open ferments and basket press into seasoned oak, twenty months maturation and a gentle gravity fed bottling without fining or filtration, to preserve the sanctity and virtue of a wonderful old vineyard.

Medium crimson colour, purple hues. Dark cherry and raspberry fruits mingle with licorice, tradewinds and peppery spice. Vanilla and hints of chocolate, the complexity of menthol lift. Ripe, red berry and dark cherry flavours flow from the palate, the savouryness of olive and bay, nutmeg and briar spice. A mesmerising, spiced and chocolate finish, on a length of chalky, fine tannin.
