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 best possible Shiraz wine from the most prized vineyards. Crushed, destemmed and fermented in five, seven and ten tonne open top fermenters with regular pump overs up to three times daily during peak fermentation for the extraction of colour and tannin. Following seven to twenty one days of maceration on skins the free run juices are drained to tank as the skins are pressed. Both the free run and pressings are blended to tank and then racked to oak after twenty four hours. Malolactic fermentation takes place in barrel. Ares is treated to a minimal fining and is bottled unfiltered. Ares reposes twenty three months in oak, the final year is spent in completely new French hogsheads. Alcohol 14.9%
Deep red and black with magenta rim. Bright and intense, volumes of rich berries, plums and maraschino cherry. The aromas are continually evolving, also bringing cedary spice, subtle lavender, bitter chocolate, tar and fudge. A palate with great depth of flavour, a wine of finesse. Juicy plums and blueberry dominate early to mid palate, then underlying cedary chocolate notes emerge carrying the wine through, tightening up again to a focused core of fruit, tannins and spice.
