Salasso means 'bleeding the juice' in Italian. The fruit was whole bunch pressed and fermented without yeast inoculation in a mix of old French oak barriques and concrete tanks. Once dry, wine was left sur lie for several months prior to bottling.

This Rosé was made from Shiraz grapes grown at Port Phillip Estate and an additional parcel of Shiraz sourced from the Heathcote region.

Expert Reviews

Pale, creamy, lightly chalky and of the ‘textural and savoury’ style that’s invariably far more interesting to drink. Summer berries with a suggestion of cool mountain herbs, or some such nonsense, but mainly it’s dry and refreshing, with pitch perfect acidity and a long almost flinty sulphide laced finish. Spot on. Rating 94 - Drink by 2014, Gary Walsh, winefront.com.au (DEC/2014).

Winery Tasting Notes


A deep plae salmon hue.


The nose shows appealing and bright aromas of fresh berries, stonefruit and cream.


The palate is lively, savoury and dry with a base of red fruits, balanced with textural weight and a lengthy mineral loaded finish.

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.
