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.

Odyssey is made from small parcels of the most superior Cabernet Sauvignon, sourced from the oldest and most precious Katnook vineyards, hand chosen for their consistent yields of the finest Coonawarra fruit. The grapes from this elite coterie of harvests, are characterized by an intensity of flavour and refined tannins. Following a small batch vinification, Odyssey is treated to a regimen of extended barrel ageings to achieve a seamless integration of oak, tannin and fruit. The first term of fifteen months in mostly new French and American 225L oak barriques, is followed by a second extravagant thirty months maturation in a selection of mostly new, French and American 225L oak barriques.
Deep plum red, almost black. A complex and richly layered array of ripe fruit perfumes, dusty plum and mulberry, black olives, vanilla bean and chocolate mocha oak. A profusion of rich fruit flavours to the palate, black bramble and loganberries, ripe dark berries, red currants and spiced plums over a sound structure of sweet oak maturation characters, driven to a powerful, everlasting finish.
