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.

Parcels are crushed into ten tonnes, open top fermenters for a week on skins, pressed and racked into seasoned French oak hogsheads for a judicious six months of age. A lithe, perfumed style of Grenache, seasoned with spiced currant and fragrant sorbet notes, licorice and raspberry coulis, cherry cola and a wiff of wet funky game.
