Guava, lemon peel, dill and fresh cut pineapple on the nose. Hints of juiciness on the palate, otherwise it is full of grapefruit pith and the drying structural elements we see from our Red Hill property. The finish is long and focused.
The Port Phillip Estate Sauvignon is a single site wine produced from 0.65 hectares of estate vineyard. The fruit was whole bunch pressed and fermented without yeast inoculation in old French oak barriques. Once dry, the wine was left sur lie for several months prior to bottling. The wine was bottled without fining and with minimal filtration.
