The propitious easterly aspects make the most of morning sun, an auspicious bequeath of fertile Ferrosols oblige the rootstock and infuse the fruit, while reducing the vigor and rationing the harvest. Lucinda Estate was never established as a producer of scale, its scant yields were always destined to be in pursuit of stunning Syrah and the perfect Pinot.

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.

Geoff Johnston studied in France where his strong interest in the unique Petit Verdot Bordeaux varietal first evolved. Johnston's initial trials with the grape have expanded to over ten hectares of mature vines. A pure varietal wine from two Pirramimma estate properties with the focus on a backbone of the best parcels grown to the Katunga estate vineyard, planted exclusively to Petit Verdot vines grafted on own rootstock, grown to sandy loam soils. Grapes are hand pressed and vinified in the original Pirramimma concrete vats before transferring to a selection of French and American oak barriques for completion of ferments, followed by two years maturation.
Deep purple colour. Violets on the bouquet, blackberries and briar, kirsch cherries and cigar box oak. Powerful concentrated palate exhibits spicy plum and forest floor, tangy cherry, hints of mulberry and vanilla bean. The long lingering tannins and subtle oak are beautifully balanced. A wine with great length of flavour and sustained finish.
