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. The windswept maritime vineyards of little Portsea Estate yield the quality of Mornington that have to be experienced... Mornington's westernmost vineyards»
The story of Langmeil begins with early Barossa settlement, planted to Shiraz by Christian Auricht in the 1840s, the estate vineyards were restored by the Lindner and Bitter families during the 1990s. Some of Herr Auricht's original plantings are still in production, three and a half priceless acres of gnarled, dry grown vines which provided the cuttings for much of Langmeil's refurbished heirloom parcels. A princely range of old, to very old single vineyard wines, delineated by the eloquence of each unique site, defined by the provenance of history and pioneer folklore. Saved from the ravages of time by the hand of providence and generations of dedicated Barossa growers... The legacy landscapes of langmeil»

The way to make great Marlborough Riesling is simple and straighforward. Leaf pruning of the vines is essential in achieving maximum quality of fruit. Moderate yields, moderate leaf plucking and harvesting at moderate brix levels all combine to produce an amazing Riesling wine. Grapes are harvested and gently pressed, the excusively free run juices are inoculated through a choice aromatic strain of yeast to enhance natural fruit flavours. Pressings are discarded and ferments are maintained at low temperatures to retain the vivid and intense citrus characters of Marlborough Riesling. Upon completion the wine is allowed to sit on lees for a several months before being gently filtered and bottled.
Brilliant straw colour with pale hue. Lively nose, florals and ripe fruit hinting of peaches and pear, lemons, lime and mandrarin peel aromas leap out of the glass. An off dry palate exhibiting impressive concentration and length, nicely balanced by firm citrus acidity. Tantalizing suggestion of mineral and satisfying textures, balance and weight over crisp acid backbone.
