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»

Portet is the ninth generation of his family to be committed to winemaking, yet he is the first to establish a winery and label bearing the family name. Brut Rose is a cepage of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, grown exclusively to fine vineyards in the cool districts of Yarra Valley. Brut Rose draws on centuries of French tradition, bottled fermented and disgorged shortly before release, receiving only a small amount of red wine and a light addition of liqueur tirage. Grapes are all hand picked, gently pressed and vinified before being treated to secondary fermentation inside its own bottle. Aged and tiraged for two years under the Dominique Portet cellars, disgorged and lightly dosed prior to resealing and release.
Deep salmon pink colour with a a creamy mousse and persistent bead. Fresh strawberries and rose petals on the nose, nuances of stonefruit and hints of light bread spice. Red berry flavours and tangy rhubarb characters, peaches and red delicious apple follow through to the fresh and dry, creamy finish. Without a doubt, this sparkling sensation will add something special to boardroom luncheons, long languid dinners and discrete soirées.
