Graeme Melton and a mate were travelling across South Australia in 1973, their EH Holden was in dire need of maintenance and Graeme took up casual work at a passing winery. The site supervisor was Peter Lehmann and young Graeme had his epiphany on the road to Barossa Valley. Lehmann suggested that Graeme change his name to Charlie and take the pilgrimmage to Vallee Rhone. Charlie became prepossessed with the culture of old vines Grenache, Shiraz and Mourverdre. He returned to the Barossa, at a time when old vineyard fruit was made into flagon Port and growers were destroying their historic sites in return for government grants.

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.. Limited editions by the master of moorooduc»

Although the vineyard team see the devil in every weed, they encourage the humble dandelion to grow amongst vines as they supress winter weeds and provide mulch in summer. Their wishing clocks chime in spring to make the dream of ultra fine Riesling come true. Whole bunches are hand picked and destemmed into small batches without crushing grapes to comfortably fill the wine press. Free run juices are vinified in small fermenters at temperatures between 11°C and 14°C, to bone dry, preserving a high level of natural acidity. Wonderland is bottled directly without fining or filtration to capture the essence of the vineyard, a looking glass if you will.
Pristine pale straw hue. Lights on in this Wonderland, jasmine, mandarin leaf and even lychee juice bursting fruit freshness, invigorating, intense smells of lime skin, citrus blossom, green apple, ripe guavas and cinnamon spice. An extraordinary precise and clean fruit spectrum of crunch lime and other citrus fruit flavours, stonefruit, apricot and mandarin, morphing into rich lemon meringue tart flavours, over steely minerality, balanced by racy, slate acidity.
