Expert Reviews

James Halliday Australian Wine Companion 2020

David Bicknell

Light straw and bright. Very much in fume in style. Hints of reduction and flint, then passionfruit, greengage and salad greens. Almost into musk. And its textural, powerful and rich too,with just enough white stone fruit phenolic crunch to hold it all together. 94 points

The Wine Front, December 2018

Campbell Mattinson

This has been on an excellent run of form and it continues here. It’s all about power, and texture. Once you have the power, you build the texture. Tropical fruit, passionfruit, guava, lemongrass, even grapefruit; all such flavours blink through the palate. It also has a gravelly, smoky edge, which is entirely a positive. This wine

saw some old wood, and it did it some good. Excellent white wine. 94 points

Winery Tasting Notes

Guava, lemon peel, dill and fresh cut pineapple on the nose. Hints of juiciness on the palate, otherwise it is full of grapefruit pith and the drying structural elements we see from our Red Hill property. The finish is long and focused.

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.
