Expert Reviews

Similar to the Balnarring Pinot; here wood spice and a hint of charcuterie come through on the bouquet, the palate with savoury, darker fruits; the fine-grained tannins and bright acidity lift and lengthen the finish. Rating 96 - Drink by 2022, James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion (MAR/2014).

Grown on 5.14 hectares of estate vineyard with an average vine age of 16 years. Wild yeast fermented and 100% destemmed.

This is a good quality release without being anything super special.It has ample flavour but seems to lack some life, some vigour. Tasty but not irresistible, perhaps. Dark cherries, cloves, crushed woody spice, old dry gumnuts. Just enough tannin. Just enough length. Tangy. It should perform reasonably well over the medium term. It sounds like I’m talking it down; I’m not, it is a good wine. Rating 91 - Drink by 2020, Campbell Mattinson, winefront.com.au (JUN/2014).

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.
