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.

The 2015 Port Phillip Estate ‘Red Hill’ Chardonnay shows bright flavours of white nectarine and honeysuckle that interweave with spicy savouriness and a lees-derived nuttiness. On the palate we see more stone fruit, such as red nectarine, along with a slightly more textured palate than usual for this wine. It is all pulled into line with a taut finish of hallmark acidity and chalkiness.

The bouquet has a touch of a la mode funk, and the palate has more depth and power than Kooyong's '15 Chardonnay. It there's a criticism, its richness and punch doesn't leave much airspace for finesse, but that's no crime in a chardonnay world so fixated on elegance.
