Sandro Mosele is one of Victoria's most accomplished vignerons, his celebrated editions of Kooyong and Port Phillip estates are amongst the most cherished renderings of Burgundy styled Pinot Noir in the nation. Mosele has applied his art to a precious parcel of fruit, picked off a single, modest block of vine, grown to the fully fertile soils of a lamb and beef stud, on the brisk, maritime blown coastals of Gippsland South. This is not Pinot for profit, Walkerville represents an aesthetic appreciation of fruit from the farmer, invigorated by the blessings of providence and consecrations of local livestock. A cornucopia of comely characters, forcemeats and fennel, pectins and pith, Walkerville make.. The grazier's garden of gippsland»

John Ellis would take every opportune weekend away from his regular New York Paris route, to pursue a passion for viticulture. He planted the first commercial Cabernet Merlot vines in the Hamptons and found time between trans atlantic flights to work vintages amongst the Grand Cru vineyards of La Bourgogne.

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.
