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; from six districts, open-fermented, then 18 months in barrel; the fragrant bouquet has both red fruits (not common in the Clare Valley) and black, the palate providing a reprise of those fruits; the tannins are soft, the oak subtle. Nice wine. Rating 91 - James Halliday, Australia Wine Companion - Feb 2014

Winery Tasting Notes


Aromas of plums and blackberries with chocolate, spice and French oak.


Rich and powerful with sweet ripe dark fruits and a touch of chocolate and spice. This is rounded by well integrated oak, firm acid and fine tannins. This wine will benefit from cellaring for the next 4 to 7 years.
