Dr Frederick Kiel would take the trek by paddle steamer from Melbourne every summer during the late 1800s to spend his summers at Sorrento. His children established a grazing station nearby, on a property acquired from the Baillieu family along Portsea Ocean Beach, ultimately planted to vineyards in 2000. These are the most extreme western longitudes of Mornington, the undulating paddocks and sweeping views of tempestuous Bass Strait are a magical place for growing Burgundesque styles of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, well protected north facing parcels of propitious free draining limestone and calcareous sands. The windswept maritime vineyards of little Portsea Estate yield the quality of Mornington that have to be experienced... Mornington's westernmost vineyards»
Established just eleven years after the founding of South Australia, the ancient vines in the Hundred Of Moorooroo were planted circa 1836 by the Jacob brothers, after accompanying Colonel William Light on the Seven Special Surveys expedition to populate Adelaide's north. Moorooroo endures as the nation's cardinal parcel of vine, the mother rootstock for many of the Barossa's most distinguished sites. For over a century, these sacred vines contributed fruit to the Orlando company, where they formed the backbone of countless spectacular historical vintages. Decimated by the government sponsored vine pull schemes of the 1980s, only four rows of these priceless vines were saved by master Ed Schild from complete annihilation. One of the smallest yielding blocks in the land, Moorooroo endures as one of the world's most.. The fruit of vines established 1836»
The mean gravelly soils and invigorating climes of Mount Barker of the Australian southwest, were identified during the 1960s by the world's leading viticulturalists, as a place uncannily similar to the great terroirs and clime of Bordeaux. The pioneering vines of Forest Hill were the first ever planted here, sired from rootstock of ancient Houghton clones, inaugurally vintaged by the illustrious Jack Mann in 1972. The Cabernet and Riesling of Forest Hill were promptly distinguished by multiple trophy victories and praised by gentleman James Halliday as the most remarkable wines to come out of the Australian west. Forest Hill have remained a source of the most profoundly structured, intensely focused, yet softly spoken range of wines. Powerful yet disciplined Cabernet, generously proportioned Malbec, august Chardonnay.. Softly spoken wonders from the west»

Grapes are hand harvested to modest baumes and natural sugar profiles. Picking at such levels creates a wine with sufficiently low alcohol, displaying a balance and delicacy that is often lost in Australian Chardonnay. The fruit is immediately taken to the winery, cooled overnight and whole bunch pressed. Components are barrel fermented in a combination of new and prior use French oak (Latour, Dargaud & Jaegle, Seguin Moreau and Cadus). A third of the parts are inoculated for a course of malolactic, building texture and introducing creamyness while lowering the natural acidity. Voyager is treated to regular battonage over the course of several months in French oak barriques.
Pale straw hues. Delicate aromas of white flower, citrus and nectarine over subtle flinty notes. Plenty of nutty flavours and mealy notes from the lees stirring and quality French oak, ripe stone fruits, tropicals and dried pear. Lovely soft creamy textures dominate the palate, a wonderful purity of fruit is perfectly countered by a savoury, mineral edge.
