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»

Whitehaven pride themselves on the quality of fruit. Vines are trained to three or four canes on a vertical trellis. Balanced pruning, shoot thinning, tucking and trimming are used to achieve an open, healthy canopy and clean fruit as the cool nights serve to retain acid freshness and delicate flavours. Grapes are harvested throughout the cool of night and pressed immediately with minimal contact on skins. After settling, the clear juices are vinified in fermenters at very low temperatures through the action of select yeast strains to preserve the distinctive regionally Marlborough varietal characters.
Crystal clear straw hue. Vibrant white currant, nettles and gooseberry aromas around a core of persistent grapefruit. Some pungent herbaceous and jalapenõ characters fill the background. The palate is full and vibrant, fresh nettle, gooseberry and tropical fruit flavours abound, lingering on the long, clean acid finish. A match with grilled snapper or asparagus recipes.
