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»
Some precious old blocks of ancient vine Grenache still remain after a government sponsored program to cull unproductive vineyards during the 1980s. Yielding excruciatingly small harvests of the most characterful fruit, these wizzened old veterans deliver small batch vintages which are evocative of the old world classics from Côtes du Rhône. The enduring Wirra Wirra were established 1894, their eclectic range belies the splendour of small parcels which are separately handled and bottled for exclusive release. The Absconder draws fruit from vines planted a century ago, it merits a breathing and decant, an articulation about the sublime excellence of old vine Australian Grenache...

Turkey Flat Grenache CONFIRM VINTAGE

Grenache Barossa South Australia
The hundred year old Turkey Flat Grenache parcels yield harvests of the most amazing concentration. Rows of traditionally spur pruned vines, husbanded in the goblet style of Vallée du Rhône, produce around two tonnes per acre, translating into intensely flavoured vintages of remarkable eloquence. Aged in a judiciously toasted selection of seasoned and new French oaks barrels, the wine achieves astonishing balance between tannin and fruit, herbaceousness and spice, all due to determining the ideal day of harvest, selective hand picking and careful sorting of the berries.
