Expert Reviews

Grown on 25 year old vines and bottled unfined and unfiltered. I’ve long been a fan; this vineyard has long produced excellent results.

It’s taken the unpleasant 2011 vintage more or less in its stride. Yes it’s not quite as weighty as normal and there is a heightened level of acidity. But its structure and charm remains intact, and so too its general quality. Spice, hay, strawberries, sweet oak, big aroma and an impressive finish. Mid palate is the weak point but the smell, finish, and overall drinking experience it provides are all very good. Price aside, if you ordered this from a restaurant wine list you wouldn’t be displeased. Rating 91+ Drink 2014 - 2018+ Campbell Mattinson, Wine Front (JUL/2013)

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

A bright, light ruby colour.

Aroma

The nose shows pretty and juicy red forest cherry fruits, interwoven with savoury meat notes and crushed meadow herb over a cool earthen base.

Palate

The palate is bright and savoury but ripely red-fruited, again with the cadences of fresh herb, roast pan juices and iron-rich earth. Spice notes and a lively tannin profile draw the appropriately ripe palate out to length.

Cellaring

Will reward further careful bottle ageing

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

The Port Phillip Estate winery, James Halliday's 2012 Winery of the Year, is situated at Red Hill in the heart of the beautiful Mornington Peninsula. Owned by the Gjergja family, winemaking is overseen by winemaker, Sandro Mosele.

Surrounded by mounds of native grasses and indigenous spotted gums, the new Port Phillip Estate winery, designed by Wood Marsh Architecture, emerges from the landscape as a dramatic curved sculpture made of rammed-earth. Inside, a large cellar door and tasting room, and a light-filled restaurant open out on to an expansive outdoor deck. Underneath, state-of-the-art winemaking facilities - a barrel room, bottling line, wine processing plant, cellaring and offices - share space with six luxury accommodation suites, complete with private decks. Views across the vines to the sea are panoramic.
