Port Phillip Estate 2019 Morillon Chardonnay


Glen Hayley, who makes wines for both Port Phillip Estate and sibling label Kooyong, is on fire right now. The Morillon Chardonnay is sourced from a tiny section within the oldest chardonnay block (33+ years) at Port Phillip Estate’s Red Hill vineyard on the Mornington Peninsula. This is a wine of serious poise and structure; unmistakably cool climate with a delicious melange of citrus, Granny Smith apple and stone fruit characters. Pair with roast pork and crackling and try to show more restraint than I did (as was evidenced by an empty bottle in quick-smart time). $55.
