    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»
    Established 1973, Woodlands of Wilyabrup were one of the first vineyards in Margaret River, planted with a view to emulating the great growths of Bordeaux. Recipients of the highly prestigious Jack Mann Memorial Medal and Wine Industry Lifetime Achievement Award for their tremendous vintages of all things Cabernet. Assembling the rich Medoc style blends are what Woodlands do best. Painstakingly crafted by hand, to challenge the primacy of the illustrious Chateaux de la rive gauche, very few vineyards yield the quality of fruit that merits vintaging into a statuesque wine dominated by the prettily fragrant Cabernet Franc. Woodlands were established from the ground up with a view to achieving limited harvests of the abstruse Bordeaux varietals, only a few hundred cases of good red wine per vintage.

    The unique topography and lush vegetation around Dalrymple's vineyards mean that very few blocks require irrigation. The fruit is ripened on the vine until luscious characters of passionfruit and spice evolve. Sauvignon Blanc is sourced from a number of Tasmanian vineyards, including Coal River valley, the White Hills region of Tamar Valley and Dalrymple's own Block K, all assembled with a view to retaining the different flavour spectrums of each parcel, to achieve a wine of great complexity. Each component is harvested and vinified separately with a variety of yeast strains and lees contact, aimed at contributing complexity and developing layers within the mouthfeel and palate.
    Pale straw green in colour. Aromas of cut grass, crushed nettles and passionfruit skins mixed with wild notes from indigenous fermentation and extended lees stirring. The palate is as crisp and refreshing as a cold Tasmanian morning, with a fleshy texture and long lasting, mouth watering acidity that gives the wine incredible length. Perfect alongside seafood or shucked oysters.
