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»

Pewsey Vale Block Riesling 1961 CONFIRM VINTAGE

Riesling Eden Valley South Australia
The Pewsey Vale property was first planted to Riesling by Joseph Gilbert in 1847. The site was later purchased by well known grazier Geoff Angas Parsons, who in 1961 invited his friend Wyndham Hill Smith to jointly develop the historic vineyard. They believed the site could produce delicate Rieslings in the Germanic style. High in the Eden Valley's low fertility, grey and sandy loam soils, a prolonged ripening late into the cool autumn season develops recognizably consistent flavour profiles, today known as classic Pewsey Vale.

Over a century and a half of wines have flowed from the superlative Pewsey Vale vineyard. From a clone planted in the Eden Valley during the 1800s, traceable to some of the original vine cuttings brought into Australia by James Busby. Any new plantings are propagated from the original vines. Pewsey Vale is not an easy vineyard to manage. Lean and hungry soils which limit the vigour of the vines, the high altitude and the vineyard's specific microclimate have necessitated the adoption of specialised viticultural management. The property itself is an idyll of gently undulating hills, fifty hectares of which are under vine, nestled close to Pewsey Vale Peak, just west of Eden Valley town centre.
Pale straw, green hues. Intense fruit aromas of talcum, crushed stone and lemon lime fruit with a hint of overlaying dried herb. The palate shows great length and depth with lime, a hint of white flowers and fresh rosemary, finishing with a fresh natural acidity that balances the intensity and minerality. Flavours evolve elegantly, toast, orange blossom and honey can be expected, while retaining the classic fresh citrus lift and palate weight of Pewsey Vale.
