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»
Lindsay McCall's enthusiasm for great wine began in the 1970s, he established his first Mornington plantings in 1985 on the site of a derelict orchard at Red Hill along Paringa Road. From day one, McCall focused on exactingly managing the soils and the vines, after completing his day job as local school teacher. His affinity for the land and astonishing feel for winemaking produced monumental vintages of Pinot Noir, which propelled the exquisite range of Paringa Estate wines to international renown. McCall works closely with Mornington's finest vignerons to nurture better standards of viticulture and deliver finer vintages with each harvest.

Nebbiolo is the king of northwest Italian red wine grapes, the signature of Piedmont and Lombardy. In the vineyard, Nebbiolo looks unimpressive, characterised by almost wild canopy growth, the berries range in colour from light to deep red. Grapes mature late in the season with low sugar and high acid levels. Following the harvest, fruit is crushed and transferred to tank for inoculation and eight days of vinification. Ferments are pumped over regularly to maintain consistent temperatures and to aid extraction from skins. Upon completion the batches are pressed into old French oak barrels for eighteen months maturation, before assembling into the final wine, stabilizing and clarification.
A light hue of red. Lifted fresh rose petal and cherry aromas follow to the palate. Flavours are supported by hints of leather, black olive and a touch of savoury before a long but delicate finish. A great match with Italian cuisine, it will not dominate but marry beautifully with the robust flavours. Try with capelli d'angela, sugo di pomodoro and meatballs, bellissimo.
