After founding Mornington's eminent Moorooduc Estate and decades crafting the most memorable vintages for Mornington's leading brands, Richard McIntyre established a tiny, single hectare vineyard, on a prominent, high elevation site at Arthur's Seat, with a view to producing limited yields of the most exquisite small batch wines. The techniques of choice are wild yeast ferments, minimal intervention and good French oak, with a nod to traditional Burgundian practices, which allow the wines to speak of provenance, express their specificity of clone and articulate their sense of place. There's not much Bellingham made but every bottle passes through the hands of a team member who has been involved with the vintage since pruning and budburst. An essential inclusion for small batch..

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.

Cabernet Sauvignon Coonawarra South Australia
The Balnave vineyards are divided into small blocks of between one and two hectares, the character of each can be quite unique. The final assemblage of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon is a compilation of selected rows off the estate's Walker, Quarry and Dead Morris blocks, treated to varying regimens of oak barrel ferments and extended macerations. Fragrant of cassis, blueberry fruit and fine cedary oak, the finished Balnave Cabernet Merlot has spent sixteen months maturing in a luxuriously high proportion of tight grain French oak barrels from Seguin Moreau and St Martin cooperages.
