Port Phillip Estate Port Phillip Serenne Block Shiraz CONFIRM VINTAGE

Shiraz Mornington Victoria
Port Phillip Vineyard is quite small at only nine hectares, there are however unique microclimes within the property which make a rather articulate wine. During the harvest of a finer, warmer growing season, the team may set aside fruit fom a half hectare block of older vines, for a limited edition Shiraz of added richness, elocution and depth. Serenne makes a wine of dulcetly aromatic, black plum and mulberry flavours, a measure of vegemite savouryness and the piquancy of spiced game, the tannins are conspicuously tranquil, secure yet serene.

The viticulture at Port Phillip is all about maintaining a clean, healthy environment to encourage vines to grow the highest quality grapes. There are never any quotas, a smaller harvest of better fruit is the priority with every vintage, all that's required is respect for the sanctity of the soil and mother nature will take care of the rest. Shiraz grapes are destemmed, a portion remains as whole bunches, into traditional open vats for maceration and eighteen days of wild indigenous yeasts ferment. Batches are filled to seasoned French oak barrels for completion of spontaneous malolactic and sixteen months maturation, bottled without fining or filtration.
Dark purple crimson colour. Fragrant compote of blackcurrants, raspberry and blackberries, a savoury cleave of smoked meats and crushed meadow herbs, supported by the intrigue of barnyard and wet clay. The palate is ripe yet linear, juicy yet sinuous, layered with savouryness and ripe red berry flavours, its graceful earthiness and attractive plumpness complement an elegant tannin line.
