Port Phillip Estate Chardonnay Grapefruit pith, green apple and lime leaf; hints of flint, cream and warm hazelnut.
One of the ‘Best of the Best by variety’: ‘Best of Chardonnay’, 96 points Chardonnay Bright colour; a savoury and complex wine showing charcuterie, lemon blossom, grilled cashew and fennel;
the palate is tightly wound, fresh, vibrant, long and complete, offering texture, crunchy acidity and a linear conclusion. (…). James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion 2012
5 stars 2009 Chardonnay
An elaborately made, pale Mornington Peninsula chardonnay with plenty of personality. The nose is
a complex, seamless melange of poached nectarine, grapefruit, spicy oak, burnt match and chalky aromas. In the mouth it has an attractively creamy, pleasantly layered feel with excellent balance and persistence. Ralph Kyte-Powell, The Age, Epicure, Wine + Food Winter, July 2011
Port Phillip Estate was established in 1987 on a property of sixty acres in Red Hill in the heart of the Mornington Peninsula. The maritime climate and southerly latitude of the Mornington Peninsula combined with the estate’s deep red loam soils are considered ideal for cool climate viticulture.
