THE LEDGE STORY

ARNOLD CAUST - ‘THE LEDGE’: On Saturday afternoon January 6 1906 Charles Arnold Caust (27 years of age) ventured to Henley Beach in South Australia with his little child, to review notes of a sermon he was preparing to preach next morning. Soon after his arrival at the Henley jetty, he saw a yacht overturned in the water; the father and several boys, who were unknown to him, were holding onto the side to save themselves. There appeared no means available to affect a rescue. Several were pointing to a boat in the vicinity tied to a buoy.

Arnold, seeing the danger, was the first to make an attempt. Read what happened.

Intense spice and liquorice, good strong plum and mulberry fruits, well balanced nose with a hint of perfumed violets and chocolate. Generous upfront fleshy fruit, with distinct plums and dark cherry flavours.
