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»
Airline pilots make surprisingly good wine. Their appreciation of the sciences, a respect for the weather and a bird's eye view of the land, all invaluable to the winemaker's art. John Ellis would take every opportune weekend away from his regular New York Paris route, to pursue a passion for viticulture. He planted the first commercial Cabernet Merlot vines in the Hamptons and found time between trans atlantic flights to work vintages amongst the Grand Cru vineyards of La Bourgogne. Ellis ultimately made the great lifelong sea change in favour of our land downunder. He settled on a farmstead outside Leongatha, amongst the slow ripening pastures of Gippsland and established a vineyard called Bellvale. It is now a place of fully mature vines and old world Burgundian techniques, sur lie et sauvage, barrel ferments and batonnage. Bellvale remains artisanally small batch, just 23 hectares of vine yields a measured harvest of spectacular quality Chardonnay and Pinot.. Placing pinot amongst the pastures»

St Hallett Blackwell Shiraz CONFIRM VINTAGE

Shiraz Barossa South Australia
Blackwell is sourced exclusively from sloped vineyards around the north and west of Barossa Valley, precincts which yield small harvests of exceptionally concentrated Shiraz grapes. The focus is on preserving freshness and purity of these extraordinarily intense, dark fruit expressions, while retaining perfect tannin balance in the finished wine. The northern hamlets of Kalimna and Ebenezer contribute juicy dark fruit and rich mocha flavours, while parcels from western districts such as Seppeltsfield give Blackwell it's muscular, brooding structure.

Established 1944 at the very heart of Barossa Valley, the St Hallett wineworks, one of the region's most formidable labels, attracts fruit from the most distinguished growers in the ancient winegrowing hamlets of Kalimna and Ebenezer, Krondorf and Gomersal, Seppeltsfield and Marananga. Shiraz is picked at full ripeness to capture concentration of flavour, vibrant tannin structure and a dense, inky colour. Each parcel is individually crushed and vinified in a collection of old, traditional open fermenters. Upon completion, batches are matched to one of a selection of American oak barrels for two years maturation, gaining considerable texture and power prior to release.
Garnet red colour. Bouquet speaks volumes, dark fruits of brooding intensity, elegant blueberry and mint perfumes, pure opulence expressing the intensity and inky density of the wine. The palate unleashes dense, rich, dark chocolate and a powerful array of dark blackberry fruit flavours. A focused multi dimensional wine of backbone, scope and breadth. Serve with anything, Blackwell matches all good food.
