Each wine of the Chain of Ponds range is paying respect to some key families in the Chain of Ponds history. This wine 'The Ledge' has been made in honour of the bravery and tragic death of Arnold Caust, resident of Chain of Ponds, who drowned trying to save a young family at Henley Beach, South Australia in 1906.

Winery Tasting Notes
Deep plum with a purple plum hue.
The aroma shows lifted spice, dark berry fruit and ripe plums with mild black pepper notes. Integrated with savoury oak notes with hints of vanilla, sandalwood and hints of dried oregano and sage.
Intense bright fruits of blackcurrant, blackberry and plums are integrated well with savoury oak spice, nuances of cured meats linger and the palate finishes with lifted notes of pepper and savoury wood spice. Balanced bright natural acidity is lively and with the fine grained firm tannins gives exceptional structure with great ageing potential. Brilliant intensity of fruit with persistence and length of both fruit and savoury flavours without being overpowering.
