Port Phillip Estate builds on the superb cool ripening conditions of Mornington to craft beautifully flavoured Burgundian styles of wine. The viticultural program of Port Phillip at Red Hill on the Mornington peninsula produces low yields of high quality Chardonnay, which best display the flavour intensity of such an exceptional site. An exquisitely balanced and structured cool climate Chardonnay, with creamy grapefruit characters up front and supple oak very much in the background.
Port Phillip pursue a philosophy of reverence, respecting the land and preserving purity of fruit. Parcels of Chardonnay are hand picked after reaching optimum ripeness, off vines aged an average of twenty years, trellised to vertical shoot positioning. Fruit is whole bunch pressed directly to a selection of new and seasoned French oak barriques, where it is treated to a natural vinification without the addition of any yeasts. Once fermentations have ceased, the parcels are sulphured to prevent malolactic, retaining all the freshness of natural acidity. This intense Chardonnay wine is matured one year on sedimentery yeast lees, for finer, more elegant structure and texture.
TASTING NOTES
Bright light lemon hue. A delicate nose of grapefruit pith, green apple and lime leaf, hazelnuts and cream. The palate is mineral and dry, linear and pure, with savoury acid crunch defining the varietal character, excellent intensity and length, with an underlying hint of savouriness. Grapefruit and lime fruits persist, a subtle ginger spiciness leads to a focused, chalky saline finish.
