Tasting Profile

September 2019

Fragrant and punchy aromatics of fresh grapefruit segments leading to hints of tropical fruits (passionfruit and pineapple). Underpinning the fruitier flavours is a dill-like herbaceousness. Similar flavours are found on the long and acid-driven palate, along with a suggestion of flesh from barrel ageing. A crisp, citrus pith edge helps round out the finish.

Alcohol 13.5%

The Vintage

Winter provided good average rainfall with approximately 200mm in total falling over June, July and August. Early September welcomed the beginning of budburst, leading to a cool Spring with very little rainfall. Cool weather continued throughout the peak growing months of October, November and December. Spring rainfall was slightly below average but sufficient to ensure the vineyards were in good condition leading into Summer. January was warm, with temperatures exceeding the long-term average, and dry, with almost no rainfall. Veraison commenced mid-January as typical. February was cool providing relief to the vineyards and consolidating veraison across all our varieties. Harvest commenced late February. Warmer weather returned at the beginning of March and conditions remained very dry and moderately warm throughout the harvest period. The viticultural and winemaking teams worked with great tenacity, it was a compact vintage finishing in late March. The white wines have an attractive balance of flavour and acidity and the red wines deliver intense flavour with excellent acidity and structure.

The Vineyard

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.
