Graeme Melton and a mate were travelling across South Australia in 1973, their EH Holden was in dire need of maintenance and Graeme took up casual work at a passing winery. The site supervisor was Peter Lehmann and young Graeme had his epiphany on the road to Barossa Valley. Lehmann suggested that Graeme change his name to Charlie and take the pilgrimmage to Vallee Rhone. Charlie became prepossessed with the culture of old vines Grenache, Shiraz and Mourverdre. He returned to the Barossa, at a time when old vineyard fruit was made into flagon Port and growers were destroying their historic sites in return for government grants.

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.

Constructed during early settlement by a supervisor of colonial convicts, at the very epicentre of the market gardens which serviced Hobart, Clarence House is a heritage listed manor which remains largely unaltered since the 1830s. It passed through several hands before being acquired by the Kilpatricks in 1993, who answered the call of Bacchus and established the grounds to vine. There are now sixteen hectares of viticulture, several significant Burgundy clones of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, with smaller plantings of Sauvignon and Pinot Blanc, Merlot, Cabernet and Tempranillo. What's most unique about the Clarence House vineyards are the soils and topography,.. Heirlooms of a hobart homestead»

His conviction that the Barossa was capable of making the best wines in the world extended far beyond Shiraz, he always called it the Garden of Eden, a winemaker's paradise. When it came to selecting a wine to dedicate to Peter Lehmann, it was not without a sense of irony that the choice should be Barossa Cabernet. Each year, the best of vintage is fashioned into a wine of great distinction.

Peter Lehmann's finest of vintage Cabernet Sauvignon, collated from exceptional, low yielding sites in the Ebenezer and Light Pass, Rosedale, Vinevale and Tanunda sub-regions of Barossa. Over the years, an elite tally of superior vineyards which produce the best Cabernet wine have been identified, many planted over sixty years ago. These older, low yielding sites grow fruit that displays classic lifted cassis and violet characters of great Cabernet Sauvignon. Components are vinified and macerated on skins for up to a fortnight with some partial barrel ferments, followed by pressing and clarification, before maturation in French oak hogsheads for fifteen months.
Deeply coloured with dense centre. Inviting aromas of blackcurrant, cedar box and mint. The palate shows defined Cabernet cassis, chocolates and vanilla, a superb integration of oak and fruit, before a firm, fine grained tannin finish. Mentor is designed to soften and increase in complexity, emerging as a wine of immense power and richness. Great depth of flavour and richness, the ideal accompaniment to goose or game, superb with braised lamb or a fine aged cheddar.
