Located at the furthest tip of the Mornington Peninsula, the estate is a truly unique property facing Bass Straight near the famous Back Beach of Mornington. The property had been owned for generations by the family of Vigneron and Proprietor Warwick Ross, who established their own winery on the site in 2010. Warwick is also well-known for his other passion - filmmaking, in particular, the sensational documentary Red Obsession (2013). Winemaker Tim Elphick has nearly two decades experience both overseas, in famous regions such as Barolo, and in Australia in Mornington and Yarra Valley. Read More
Portsea Estate Back Beach Chardonnay 2018
Hand-picked, whole-bunch pressed to new and used French oak for 3-5 weeks fermentation and 10 months maturation. An elegant wine, poised and balanced. White peach leads the flavour pack, with a tinkle of grapefruit chiming in on the back-palate and aftertaste.
Rating: 95 Points, Special Value
