So silky in the mouth; texture is the highlight for me. Immaculate acidity and mild tannin. Ripe with a caramel subtext yet agile and only just medium-bodied. Black raspberry, sarsaparilla, Campari and white cherry with spiced rhubarb. It’s all edged by earth and forest-litter. Delicious little carry through to the back-palate.
Awards and Accolades
2015 Vintage: 93 Points - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion "A lacy, almost ethereal pinot noir, this is etched with a lively red fruited tang. Wild strawberries, red cherry and rhubarb spring to mind. The tannins are chalky and firm, yet serve to set the palate up for another sip rather than warning one that the wine is unapproachable. There is a tad of whole cluster nether nether, too. Indeed, as well as this will develop, it is delicious now. A vanilla oak slice of oak merely accentuates the fruit, guiding it along its way."
From the Winery
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.
