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»
There are but two winemakers who can lay claim to a staggering four Jimmy Watson Trophy victories. Wolf Blass was the man behind the label. John Glaetzer was the man behind Wolf Blass. While working for Wolf, Glaetzer was moonlighting on his own brand, applying the same extravagance of technique to the pick of Langhorne Creek fruit. Perfection in the form of black bramble fruit, muscular yet affable tannins, all framed by the luxury of ebony oak. Aspirants of the great Black Blass Label fables of 1974, 1975 and 1976, are privately advised to avail themselves of John's Blend, Cabernet or Shiraz. Crafted from the same parcels, in the same way, by the same hands, that collaborated to create, the most celebrated triumphs in the history of our nation's highest accolade, thrice winners of the exalted Jimmy Watson Memorial..

The legacy endures within a measured range of small batch Shiraz, crafted to traditional techniques and fashioned for timeless excellence. Enthusiasts of grand old brands with a provenance and history are advised to avail themselves of a case or two Shiraz from Heathcote.. The alluring case for craven's place»

Parcels of Cabernet Sauvignon are vinified for a fortnight in open top fermenters while being gently pumped over to treat the fermenting juices back into the skins, extracting flavour and just the right amount of tannins. Upon completion, components are matured in a selection of fine oak barrels to integrate fruit characters and tame the firm Cabernet tannins.
Purple coloured with darker hues. Currants, strawberries and plum seasoned by varietal green leaf characters behind the deep blue berry fragrances. A well integrated palate of lively varietal fruit flavours, black cherry, cassis, cocoa and plums supported by subtle hints of vanillin, tobacco and fennel. A dry, lingering finish with fine cleansing acidity makes Mountadam the perfect match to braised beef and wide ribbon tomato pasta.
