Overview

The Port Phillip Estate vineyard is located on the Mornington Peninsula at Red Hill, on Eocene volcanic soils. Our wines are made from domain grown, handpicked grapes and aim to manifest terroir: the integration of our geology and soils with the macroclimate of our region, the mesoclimates of the various sites within our vineyard and the weather of the annual grape growing season. Our cultural operations in the vineyard and practices in the winery endeavour to articulate these unique characteristics diligently, respectfully and without artifice.

Expert Reviews

This is pinot noir for purists. It’s nicely ripened, carrying enough flesh and fruit, but all the while it’s built on structure, spice, acid, tannin, scaffolding, you get the drift. It’s a frame on which various flavour garments and highlights are draped. It feels sure, it smells perfumed, it drifts long, it’s light in a positive way. If I saw this, I wouldn’t hesitate.

Winery Tasting Notes

The 2017 Port Phillip Red Hill Pinot displays a vibrant crimson hue and reveals a perfumed mix of red florals, strawberry and blueberry on the nose, offset by hints of pine sap and allspice. Raspberry, citrus and red currant flavours gently fill the palate from start to finish. These flavours are complemented by a tight line of fine tannin that help drive the wine into a long, expansive finish. The depth, fine acidity and structure indicate good medium-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.
