Port Phillip Estate is located at Red Hill on the Mornington Peninsula. The maritime climate and southerly latitude combined with the estate’s deep red loam soils are ideal for cool climate viticulture. The vineyard is set in a sheltered natural amphitheatre with north and north-east facing slopes providing excellent drainage and exposure to sunlight.
The colour is a bright, deepish red with a good tint of purple, the bouquet superbly complex and perfumed, with whole-bunchy ‘forest floor’ bass notes overlying sweet cherry, strawberry perfumes and a hint of violets. It’s a gorgeous wine: medium-bodied and intense, with long-lingering flavour and persistent fine-grained tannins. Rating: 95 Points; Huon Hooke; The Real Review
While medium bodied at best, with smooth and supple tannins, this packs a lot of flavour and depth. Floats between florals, spicy dark cherries and heady forest-floor aromas. Oak is neatly integrated. It's compelling, complex, lithe and a lovely drink.
