The wines of Port Phillip are about pursuing a philosophy and revering a special place, respecting the land and preserving purity of fruit. Ultimately they represent the holistic accord between those who husband the vine and the fruit of the land itself, the unspoken compact that both should give to receive. Port Phillip is a generously flavoured Sauvignon Blanc that's blessedly at its very best while young and fresh, enjoy with goat's cheese and fetta, Al fresco or succulent white meat roasts.
Good wine comes from a balance of controlled yields and quality fruit. The Port Phillip Estate viticultural program produces low yield, high quality grapes which display the flavour intensity of an exceptional site. There are nine productive hectares, rapidly gaining a reputation for exceptional cool climate wines. Success is based around the attention to detail and impeccable vineyard management of maestro Sandro Mosele. Parcels of estate grown Sauvignon Blanc are whole bunch pressed and treated to a wild indigenous yeast vinification in a mix of concrete vats and French oak barriques. Components are matured sur lie for several months to enhance texture and build complexity.
TASTING NOTES
Bright pale straw colour. The nose is fine with spring apple blossom, nettles, cut green leafiness and hints of red currant. In the mouth it rolls mid to light in weight, has crunchy minerality and flinty acid, fresh grassy aromas and a continuation of the red currant/ green apple and apple seed flavours. The palate minerality gives it some commonality with old world styles although the fruit is fresh and primary.
