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»

Weingut Egon Müller makes Riesling and nothing but. Through the influences of nature and nurture, Riesling is a singular variety which has been bred over millennia to lend itself to an almost innumerable permutations of fruit character and fragrance. Egon Muller focuses on collating the most prized parcels from his own vineyards and from the most distinguished growers in the Rhineland. Many of these sites were established by ancient Romans and are grown to rootstock which can be traced back centuries. The most prized clones, planted to the finest blocks which have enjoyed perfect growing conditions, are set aside each year to provide the quality of fruit which can be vinified into the rich and luscious Auslese.
Pale gold hue. White fruit aromas and floral bouquet, citrus, peaches and pear. A rich palate with bright citrus acid balancing the sweetness of fruit flavours. The wine displays stony minerality, hints of acacia and lilac, grilled exotic fruit, sweet stone fruits and bracing acidity all combined in perfect harmony. The finish is very long, with generous, lingering complexity.
