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.

Shiraz Heathcote Victoria
Tyrrell's planted their Heathcote vineyard in 1994, on the ancient russet red Cambrian soil, at the foot of Mt Camel along the southern end of the Colbinabbin Range. This narrow strip with its unique topography, gives the wine its rich, yet refined flavours that typify Heathcote wines, especially Shiraz. The climate is warm, dry and reliable from year to year. Vines are relatively low yielding, producing grapes which are renowned for their ability to ripen to complete flavour development, yet still retain excellent levels of natural acidity and tranquil, fine grained tannins.

Heathcote is one of Australia's most exciting red wine regions. Spotting this potential some years ago, Bruce Tyrrell recognized the significance of the region for Shiraz very early on, placing a priority on locating and developing the best possible site for inclusion into the estate's portfolio. Tyrrell secured over eighty acres of prime land which today produces wines with an extreme weight of fruit. Parcels of Heathcote Shiraz are gently destemmed and separately vinified in a combination of open and closed fermenters, an inclusion of Viognier adds opulence and lift. Batches are matured two years in predominately French oak barriques, racked several times before assessing and determining the final assemblage.
Dense red/purple colour. A great lift of mulberry and plum fruit to the bouquet, soft, integrated, spicy, chocolate oak. The palate is rich and robust whilst maintaining the finesse of Heathcote. The intense, berry fruit flavours, richness and mouthfilling appeal makes it a fine accompaniment to lamb, beef and game.
