Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Bright lemony straw colour.

Aroma

The nose is youthful, shy and fine, with notes of crunchy yellow apple, fresh cream, ginger and sea spray, plus some background characters in the bulb fennel/ crushed herb arena.

Palate

In the mouth the wine is restrained, linear and chalky, a touch tight in youth perhaps, though with a lees-derived, creamy complexity that promises to build weight over time. A lively, savoury wine that would almost certainly reward careful mid-term cellaring.

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.
