Parcels of destemmed and whole bunch fruit are treated to a mix of traditional large format wooden foudres and fermenters for maceration and inoculation to wild indigenous yeasts.

Vibrant garnet colour. Highly perfumed and complex with dark cherry, plum and violet aromas over underlying savoury notes. The palate exhibits a tight and focused core. Initial ripe strawberry and raspberry characters move into the deeper territory of black cherries, liquorice and a touch of tapenade, subtle meatiness adds complexity. Fine tannins balanced with a stony acidity lead to a long, powerful finish.

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.
 
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.

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.

The cellar door that looks across the vineyard is a bit like a country general store, very atmospheric, homely and friendly. Port Phillip’s wines are excellent and have a great record at wine shows, particularly the richly constructed, ageworthy Shiraz and Pinot Noir." Ralph Kyte-Powell
