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»

Willows G7 Grenache Shiraz CONFIRM VINTAGE

Shiraz Barossa South Australia
G7 for seven generations of Barossa viticulture by the Scholz family. Establishing a mixed farm of livestock and orchards in 1845, Johann Scholz planted one of the first Barossa vineyards along the alluvial banks of Para River. An ideal site, invigorated by gully winds for a slow ripening of intense berry spice flavours in the grapes. Mostly Grenache with a fifth of Shiraz, defined by its succulence and aromatic allure, the softly textured tannins, decadent spice and wickedly wild cherry fruits of Grenache, the firm structure and palate length of Shiraz.
Available by the dozen
Case of 12
