The very first blocks of vine planted at Scotchmans Hill, are now in their fourth decade. Set aside for bottling as a range of limited release, single vineyard wines, they represent the first growth of viticulture from the fertile crescent of Port Phillip's western shore. Crafted to traditional old world techniques, very similar to the great Crus of la Bourgogne, they afford the true enthusiast an opportunity to engage with the decadent delights of the greater Geelong, as sampled alongside Gruyere, game and the finest gourmandise...

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 loam over clay soils at Edwards Road were established to Cabernet vines in 1993. The five acres site is surrounded by a rich diversity of flourishing native flora and fauna, all supported by the ecologically sustainable land management of the vineyard. Fruit is harvested off hand tended, low yielding narrow planted rows of vine which run north to south down the sloping site. Grapes are destemmed and crushed, parcels are separately fermented on skins for a week at temperatures peaking to 30°C. Batches are pressed and returned with the free run juices, into a high proportion of new French and American oak barrels for sixteen months maturation, before assembling into the finished wine.
Deep bright red colour. Rich, red fruit nose, spices and savoury earth bouquet. Hints of black cherry, plum and a caramel sweetness are embedded within the many layers of complexity. An extraordinary weight of fruit on the palate, Edwards Road exudes McLaren Vale Cabernet vegetal fruit flavours, finishing on a generous length of exquisitely drying tannins.
