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.. The return of rootstock to garden of eden»

Established 1908, Redman's Coonawarra are still made by the Redman brothers from fruit grown to the original family parcels.

Just three kilometres from Young along Murringo Road, planted to a brisk 500 metres above sea level, Grove Estate was originally sown to vines in 1886, by Croatian settlers who brought cuttings from their farms on the Dalmatian coast. Some of these ancient plantings, emigrated at a time when much of Europe was ruled by Hapsburg emperors, remain productive to this day. Newer blocks were gradually established around these priceless parcels, ostensibly with a view to supplying leading national brands. The quality of fruit became so conspicuous that Grove Estate sanctioned industry celebrities from Ravensworth and Clonakilla to begin bottling under their own.. Quiet consummations of grove estate»

Penfolds St Henri 375ml CONFIRM VINTAGE

Shiraz Barossa South Australia
Excellent Langtons Classification. St Henri stands out as one of the most internationally successful Australian icon wines, year in and year out, it serves to uphold the integrity and regal nature of the Penfolds brand. Always an expression of the finest South Australian Shiraz without the distraction of oak, a minor component of Cabernet, can in some years be assembled into the final wine, contributing structure, firmer tannins and complexity.
St. Henri is significantly matured in old, 1460 litre vats that allow the wine to develop, imparting minimal, if any oak character. The focal point for St. Henri is about the collation of the finest Shiraz available to Penfolds, vinified to express the qualities of outstanding fruit. Conceived by John Davoren in the early 1950s alongside development of the mighty Grange, St Henri is a later incarnation of a wine grown to a vineyard adjacent to Penfolds called Auldana Cellars, originally vinified by Frenchman Leon Edmund Mazure who is also accredited as the creator of sparkling burgundy. St Henri is treated to a year's maturation in a well seasoned collection of larger format oak.
Splendid depth of colour. Lifted and complex, aromas of spice, raspberry and blackberry fruits, developing characters of praline, anise and mocha with a swirl of the glass. Tight palate, rounded, integrated, yet obvious tannins, primary flavours of black fruits, blackberry conserve, dark plum, liquorice and spice are evident. A youthful, lively wine with no oak influence, a wine of the vintage, demanding larger glassware and an energetic swirl.
