Port Phillip Estate Sauvignon 2013

Mornington Peninsula, Victoria   |    750ml   |    13%
Port Phillip Estate is regarded as one of Victoria's leading producers of Sauvignon Blanc. The newly released Port Phillip Estate Sauvignon continues the outstanding form of recent vintage of this wine.

"Bright pale straw colour. A nose of apple blossom, lemon citrus, crushed nettle and fresh grass lead into a palate with bright, crunchy granny smith apple flavours, grassy mouth aromas, medium weight and an underpinning mineral line. Approachable, fresh and cheerful. - Port Phillip Estate.

Reviews of the 2012 Port Phillip Estate Sauvignon Blanc included below;

"94 Points. Bright straw-green; it would be hard to imagine a greater contrast with the sauvignon blanc of Marlborough; here texture and structure take primacy, not fruit salad, with oak just the starting point."- James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion 2014

"Complex, savoury and varietally expressive, this rather floral and funky sauvignon marries winemaker-driven meaty, creamy influences with bright gooseberry, lychee and passionfruit flavours. Its bouquet is floral and smoky with a hint of charcuterie, while its luscious, generous palate has a lush, nougat-like creaminess and a persistent core of finely focused fruit. Tightly controlled but given plenty of opportunity to evolve, this is where Australian sauvignon blanc needs to be." - Jeremy Oliver, Gourmet Traveller Wine.
2012 Winery Of The Year - James Halliday

Port Phillip Estate was established in 1987 on a property of sixty acres in Red Hill in the heart of the Mornington Peninsula. The maritime climate and southerly latitude of the Mornington Peninsula combined with the estate's deep red loam soils are considered ideal for cool climate viticulture. Port Phillip Estate is regarded as one of Victoria's leading producers of Sauvignon Blanc, and the newly 2011 vintage is one of their finest.

The Port Phillip Estate vineyard is located on the Mornington Peninsula at Red Hill, on Eocene volcanic soils. Our wines are made from domain grown, handpicked grapes and aim to manifest terroir: the integration of our geology and soils with the macroclimate of our region, the mesoclimates of the various sites within our vineyard and the weather of the annual grape growing season. Our cultural operations in the vineyard and practices in the winery endeavour to articulate these unique characteristics diligently, respectfully and without artifice.
