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»

Moss Wood Ribbon Vale Semillon Sauvignon CONFIRM VINTAGE

Sauvignon Blanc Semillon Margaret River Western Australia
For a wine that relies on lifted, zesty fruit notes as this one does, the final assembly sits very close to perfect. Ribbon Vale's fruit produces a different style to that grown at neighbouring Moss Wood. Sauvignon Blanc brings major aromaticness to the wine, the Semillon component contributes heightened flavour profiles. Ribbon Vale is vibrant and juicy, pristine and finer than most variants of the blend. Flavour builds in the glass before a finish that is refreshingly crisp with zippy acidity and an aftertaste that's long and fruitful, dry and lingering.

All fruit is hand picked, grapes are destemmed and chilled, pressings are kept separate and cold settled for two days. Juices are racked off lees and warmed to 18⁰C for inoculation with pure yeast culture. Batches are fermented to dryness, racked and adjusted for acidity and sulphur dioxide. Components are assembled and filled to a selection of 225 litres French oak barriques. After three months of age, the oaking adds palate richness and a measure of exciting minerality which beautifully frames the greener nature of Sauvignon Blanc. All parts are rack and returned into the finished wine at the end of October, bentonite fined for protein stability and sterile filtered before bottled.
Light to medium straw hue. Lifted fruit aromas of gooseberry, passionfruit, lychee, lemon sherbet and cheddar cheese - very bright and fresh. A palate of some impact, crisp acidity, juicy lemon, passionfruit and gooseberry flavours, showing full body and very clean finish, sans astringency. Great texture, long flavours, clean and fresh without any phenolics.
