Tasting Profile

November 2022

Pure fruit aromas of black and redcurrant and raspberry leap from the glass. Earthy spiced notes add savoury interest to the perfumed nose. The medium-bodied palate delivers fine structure and complexity, with more juicy red berry flavours leading to a spicy, vibrant and fresh finish.

Halliday Wine Companion, July 2023

At first, the reduction clipped the palate and I went yeah, nah. Waited for it to unfurl in the glass and went yeah, yeah. Fantastic dark purple colour with lots of pepper, aniseed and baking spices infusing the black plums. It feels cool and cooling, medium bodied with lovely fine emery-board tannins and ultra-refreshing. Oh yeah.

The WineFront, November 2023

Gary Walsh

A slightly rubbery reductive top note here, raspberry and blueberry, dried herb and cracked pepper. It’s medium-bodied, fresh with something of a ripe tomato flavour in with the mixed berries, a little savoury and twiggy, with a sweet/tart finish of solid length. You have to like a certain style of Shiraz, for sure, but it’s a pretty good wine all up.

The Vintage

Although 2020 Winter was mild, it provided excellent rainfall, with approximately 225mm falling evenly throughout June, July, and August. Budburst commenced in the second week of September, a typical start to a season on the Mornington Peninsula. Spring presented typical conditions with fluctuating temperatures and rainfall. Temperatures stabilised before flowering, and the region experienced favourable conditions throughout this critical time of the season. All our vineyards enjoyed good flowering and fruit set. While early Summer rainfall was below average, conditions shifted to wet and humid during January. The viticultural team worked diligently to ensure our vineyards remained disease-free. Veraison commenced mid-January, earlier than the last couple of seasons. Our vineyards were replenished with good natural rainfall during this time, thus satisfying the increased water demand of grapevines. The sunny but relatively cool weather throughout February meant ripening was slow and steady. Harvest commenced in early March and continued into early April. The weather remained mild throughout, and harvest progressed at an even pace, providing ideal conditions.

The Vineyard

The 2019 Port Phillip Estate Shiraz is a single vineyard wine produced from 0.53 hectares of estate vineyard.

The fruit, including a small amount of whole bunches, was fermented spontaneously with ambient yeasts in an open top concrete fermenter for 16 days. Malolactic fermentation was indigenous, and the maturation period was 13 months in old French oak barriques. This wine was bottled without fining.
