Returned servicemen from the Great War could look forward to government grants of pastoral freehold. West Australia's Willyabrup Valley was such a place, just a short walk from the balmy beaches of Indian Ocean, it offered the veterans excellent potential for agriculture. The fertile lands of Sussex Vale were originally established to animal husbandry by the discharged troopers, generations of livestock enriched the soils and it was astutely sown to vines in 1973. Fortuitously placed at the very heart of the Australian west's most illustrious estates, it continued to occupy the thoughts of neighbouring Howard Park's chief winemaker, until he acquired the property and relaunched a softly spoken range of the most exquisite wines. Aspirants of the blue blooded styles from Margaret River will be delighted, redolent reds.. A better block on hay shed hill»
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.

Fully mature vines, cooler sites and access to crucial water gives Mountadam the edge. Chardonnay is sourced from the Mountadam estate property near the historic Boehm Springs Reserve, a nesting ground for Wedge Tail Eagles, the Mountadam logo. Sitting at an altitude of over 400 metres above sea level the vines grow in quartz rich sandy loams formed from the underlying schist bedrock. Picking grapes throughout the cool of early morning followed by a gentle pressing and a long cool four weeks of fermentation with natural cultured yeast helps retain maximum grape flavours. Parcels are selected which can best display the intensity of Chardonnay within the context of a vibrantly unoaked wine.
A pale green colour. Aromas of tropical fruit, rich apricot and ripe nectarine, layered with the complexity associated from a traditional vinification. Intense lively aromas of ripe peach and melon carry through on the palate with distinctly fresh acidity typical of cool climate Chardonnay. A long finish with lingering fruit characters and racy acidity. To accompany chicken caesar or grilled fresh water fishes.
