There are four tiny patches of vine at Scotchman's Hill, which have been mollycoddled by Robin Brockett, since the start of his tenure as chief winemaker in the 1980s. Excruciatingly limited after a strict pruning and rigorous sorting of fruit, they each yield a mere hundred cases of wine. Brockett has set aside the precious harvests of these superior blocks for his own label, a personal project to hand craft the finest of vintage, an exclusive range of the Bellarine's most elite single vineyard efforts. So besotted is Brockett by the spectacular quality of fruit from these four regal parcels, he has imported two 800 Litre Tuscan vinification Amphora from the Brunello commune of Montalcino. Whole bunches and wild ferments in the like of ancient clay urns, hand plunged in the old world way, appreciatively unfiltered for.. Brockett begets the best of bellarine»
Lindsay McCall's enthusiasm for great wine began in the 1970s, he established his first Mornington plantings in 1985 on the site of a derelict orchard at Red Hill along Paringa Road.

McCall works closely with Mornington's finest vignerons to nurture better standards of viticulture and deliver finer vintages with each harvest.

The old pub remains but the surrounding land has been turned over to viticulture, planted to vine in the nineteen naughties, it produces a quality of wine that's reserved for the nation's most exclusive winelists.

Grenache Mourvedre Shiraz Western Australia
It's no puzzling coincidence that the three noble grapes of Côtes du Rhône have endured as one of the wine world's most engaging, long lived accords. The plump, juicy sweetness of Grenache provides an amenable foil to the rustic tannins and pastoral earthiness of Mourvedre. Add a dash of peppery plum Shiraz and you have achieved a harmonious construct which drinks beautifully while fresh, beguiling and evocative after a term of bottle age.

Harvests of bush vine Grenache and Mourvedre are painstakingly picked by hand at optimal ripeness. Shiraz is vintaged slightly earlier in the season to capture and retain the fragrant spice of youthful berries. Batches are vinified in small open fermenters, Grenache and Shiraz are included with a measure of whole bunches to infuse aromatic lift. Ferments are hand plunged twice daily and pressed off quickly upon completion, transferred to a selection of well seasoned large format oak vats for an extended term of eighteen months maturation.
