Located at Red Hill on Victoria's Mornington Peninsula, Port Phillip Estate consistently produce some of Victoria's leading Pinot Noir. Now in its eighth year, Port Phillip Estate Balnarring Pinot Noir represents the exploration of their second site, located in Balnarring.
The 2019 Port Phillip Estate Balnarring Pinot Noir is another brilliant example of Peninsula Pinot Noir delivering a heady mixture of black cherry and blackcurrant aromas along with some spicy whole-bunch-derived complexity. The medium weighted palate delivers loads of juicy dark cherry, strawberry and raspberry flavours which are a feature of this lovely approachable Pinot Noir.
"95 Points. While medium bodied at best, with smooth and supple tannins, this packs a lot of flavour and depth. Floats between florals, spicy dark cherries and heady forest-floor aromas. Oak is neatly integrated. It's compelling, complex, lithe and a lovely drink. $39. 13.5% alc. Drink by: 2033. Screwcap"- Jane Faulkner, winecompanion.com.au.
"95 Points | Buy of The Week. The colour is a bright, deepish red with a good tint of purple, the bouquet superbly complex and perfumed, with whole-bunchy ‘forest floor’ bass notes overlying sweet cherry, strawberry perfumes and a hint of violets. It’s a gorgeous wine: medium-bodied and intense, with long-lingering flavour and persistent fine-grained tannins. Screwcap."- Huon Hooke, The Real Review.
"94 Points. This opens taut, savoury and complex but as it breathes the fruit seems sweeter and fuller. It seems serious and stern at first; generous to the point of deliciousness in time. That said, a healthy amount of spice and twig-like notes remain heightened throughout and its tannin never really lets go of the reins. In short, it’s a joyous Pinot Noir with substance. It works now and it will also work if you wait. Tasted: Aug20 13.5% alc. $39 Screwcap Drink : 2021 - 2026+" - Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front.
