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.

Legendary Penfold winemaker John Duval began his apprenticeship in 1974 under the tutelage of the late great Max Schubert. Duval's family had been supplying Penfolds with fruit and root stock for generations, many of South Australia's most prestigious vineyards were sown with cuttings from Duval's family property. Duval was awarded International Wine & Spirit Competition Winemaker of Year and twice London International Red Winemaker of Year. He now focuses on releasing painfully limited editions, assembled from precious parcels of elite Barossa vine, hand crafted by one of the world's most accomplished and peer respected winemakers...

School teacher Lindsay McCall's fascination for wine began in the mid 1970s. He decided to pursue his dream in 1984 with the purchase of a derelict orchard on Paringa Road. From day one, McCall focused on exactingly managing the soils and the vines. His affinity for the land and astonishing feel for winemaking produced vintages of Pinot Noir that propelled the status of his efforts to stellar heights. Lindsay works closely with some of Mornington's finest vignerons to mentor and to nurture better techniques of viticulture. Grapes are completely destemmed into 2½ tonnes open fermenters, for three weeks vinification on skins, followed by a year on sedimentery lees in seasoned French oak barriques.
Bright scarlet colour. Bouquet exudes dark cherry aromas, a sprinkle of cool climate Mornington spice and subtle oak characters. A ripe, fruit driven palate brimming with Pinot fruit flavours, a wine of considerable depth, layered with finesse and style. An excellent current drinking Pinot Noir to accompany duck, pasta or lamb.
