Overview

Henry Frost was a colourful Adelaide chap with a dapper disposition and an entrepreneurial eye.

In 1885, his thriving carriage building business merged with that of the saddle maker James Holden, and the new enterprise was badged as Holden & Frost Ltd. Recognisable by the life-sized wooden horse which perched above the entrance of the saddlery, the coach building business flourished, and the succes spurred the imagination of Holden's enterprising son, who predicted that the motor car was the next big thing.

Frost died before witnessing the truth of his prophesy, but his pioneering legacy remains with us.

Expert Reviews

Medium red-purple; has more verve and style than most Clare Valley cabernet merlots, with a pleasantly savoury/black olive edge to the redcurrant and cassis fruit base. Rating 90 - James Halliday, Australia Wine Companion - Feb 2014

Winery Tasting Notes

Aromas

Ripe blackcurrants and red fruits dominate the bouquet with a touch of leaf, hint of chocolate and cedar oak. Palate

Ripe, rich and concentrated with blackcurrants and dark fruits. There is a touch of spice and chocolate on the mid palate and a cedar oak finish. This is rounded out by fine grain tannins and balanced acidity.
