Expert Reviews

Mid-crimson, bright; lively and essency red and black cherry on the bouquet, with a lifted herbaceous note an attractive sub text; the palate is nothing short of racy, with plenty of drive, length and silky tannins lingering on the finish; elegance and power combined. Rating 94 - Drink by 2020 - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion 2013

Grown on a hectare of estate pinot noir plantings. Barrel fermented (wild) in large French oak foudres and wood matured for 18 months. There seems to be a push at Port Phillip/Kooyong to have the fruit take the back seat to more earthen/spicy/herbal elements. These wines don’t taste Burgundian but it’s a more Burgundian presentation of the variety, if that makes sense. Nothing about this wine is in your face; it’s dry and savoury, and reserves most of its offering for the burst of flavour on the finish. It’s so dry and savoury it almost crackles through your mouth. Food is demanded. 93 points Drink 2014 – 2019+. Campbell Mattinson, Wine Front (9/AUG/2012)

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Bright medium maroon colour.

Aroma

The nose shows interwoven notes of Asian spices, sour black and morello cherry, red currant and bramble, dried pine needle, as well as hints of sweet red earth and umeboshi plum.

Palate

The palate is as usual pure, elegant and savoury with tightly wound fruits and an Italianate cherry stone bitterness on the finish which, along with its super fine-grained sinewy tannins, is hallmark of the site.

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.
