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.

Famous for their stately reds, Mount Langi are also well placed to make the nation's finest white. Always among the last vineyards in Australia to be picked, Mount Langi can look forward to the type of extended growing season which yields remarkable white wine vintages. Grapes are harvested off blocks of old vine, the youngest are in their fourth decade, some planted over a century ago. Fruit is crushed into controlled fermenters for inoculation to a high glycerol, Riesling specific yeast 796, for three weeks vinification on light solids at 15°C. Upon completion, components are assembled into the finished wine for early bottling, to capture and retain the wonderfully fragrant Grampians Riesling characters.
Very light straw hue. Intense lemon and lime citrus nose, lanolin and floral notes, honeysuckles and a fragrant mineral edge. A palate of terrific fruit precision and splendid length, exquisitely clean fruit characters upfront, chalkiness and quartz, reined in by a lean yet juicy, crisp, tight acidity. Amazing balance throughout, the wine lingers on a prolonged, pristine finish.
