During one of Mitchell's historical expeditions, he charted the fertile lands around Victoria's Goulburn Valley, establishing the colonial fruitgrowing township of Mitchell's Town.

Right next to the Merry Widow Inn at Glenrowan, infamous of Kelly gang folklore, Richard Bailey set up shop to service prospectors during the great Victorian gold rush of the 1860s. Rows of newly planted Shiraz soon followed and the Baileys released their first vintage in 1870. The region was ultimately infected by the terrible vine killing plague of the 1890s, a guarded blessing for Glenrowan, which elevated the quarantine status of its vitiated vineyards to a marque of the highest provenance.

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.
