Johann Gottfried Scholz served in the Prussian army as a battlefield bonesetter, before joining the great emigration of Lutherans from Silesia to Barossa Valley. After building a family homestead along the alluvial banks of Para River, Gottfried established a mixed farm of livestock and crops, fruit trees and grapevines, Semillon and Shiraz.

So besotted is Brockett by the spectacular quality of fruit from these four regal parcels, he has imported two 800 Litre Tuscan vinification Amphora from the.. Brockett begets the best of bellarine»
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.

Some of the original vineyards planted by Jack Stanton in 1921 are still operational and produce the finest fruit in the district. The most notable being the old Shiraz vines which provide the most distinguished material for S&K's famous Vintage Port. Six different varieties must be picked and fermented separately, assessed, aged and artisanally assembled before maturation in large 2500 litres, well seasoned oak casks, followed by a further spell of bottle age before release.

A viscous, deeply coloured wine. Lifted brandy spirit and dark cherry fruit dominate, blackberries and a wonderful spirit integration. More berries on the palate together with plums, spice and white pepper are rounded out with gentle chalky tannins. Spiced blackberry and black cherry flavours combine to round out the wonderfully soft finish. As always balance is the key, an harmonious combination of fruit, tannin and acid.
