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.. The return of rootstock to garden of eden»

St Johns Road Prayer Garden Grenache CONFIRM VINTAGE

Grenache Barossa South Australia
There's a 120 year old patch of Grenache on the Riebke family vineyard at Ebenezer known as Prayer Garden, so named because the pruners and pickers must kneel to husband the ancient vines. Cuttings from Prayer Garden were transplanted to a flat on the neighbouring Jones Road property, they yield a vibrant style of Grenache that's brimming with character and charm. Fruit is treated to ten days of ferment in open two tonnes vats, followed by ten months in 500 litres oak puncheons. Cherries and raspberry, licorice, savouryness and a twist of warm gamey spice.
