The viticulture at Port Phillip is proudly old fashioned, biological farming systems focus on the health of soil through the use of compost teas, mulches and natural plant conditioners. Grapes are all picked by hand and any questionable bunches are discarded. Shiraz is harvested and treated to a traditional old world vinification in a mix of open top concrete and wooden vessels, a portion of whole bunches are included in the macerations, inoculated to the action of wild indigenous yeasts, for three weeks of ferment. Upon completion, batches are filled to seasoned French oak barriques for spontaneous malolactic and sixteen months maturation, bottled without fining or filtration.
Deeply coloured. Cracked pepper and char, a complex mix of red and black fruits, wet forest, seasoned by charcuterie and lithe spice. The medium weight palate is laden with blackcurrant, mixed dark berry and fleshy plum flavours, a twist of milled pepper and trade spice, audacious, framed by cherry oak and supported by agile tannins, all the way to a long sustained finish.
