Port Phillip Wine

for this region?

Port Phillip is a zone within the Victoria wine region of Australia. Some call it “Melbourne’s dress circle” for its trend of high-quality boutique wineries located near this major city where they are showcased in bistros and winebars. However, these wines, particularly from the Yarra Valley, have also made a splash in other parts of the world.

The Port Phillip Bay provides cooling climate conditions for most of the area, but parts further inland experience hotter weather. For this reason, the region boasts an array of styles from sparkling, to dry white to light and full-bodied red and sweet.

The subregions of Port Phillip are:

    * Geelong
    * Macedon Ranges
    * Mornington Peninsula
    * Sunburry
    * Yarra Valley

Other wineries which do not fit into these zones have cropped up outside the eastern suburbs of Melbourne and French Island, such as Cannibal Creek, Chestnut Hill, French Island Read more »

  • De Bortoli "Db" Pinot Noir Yarra Valley Regional Reserve 2014

    Snoothrank:

    Bright red cherry syrup aromas open in the glass with a touch of rose petal and some baking spice with a dose of sharp heat. In the mouth it's soft and smooth. There's a simple red cherry note throughout and not much development of other flavors or character. Still, it's approachable and refreshing.83 pts Read More

  • De Bortoli Db Family Selection Chardonnay 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Nectarine, pear and meyer lemon on the nose. Blades of grass on the palate deliver astringent yellow fruit flavors. Lemon drops galore. Marmalade and honeysuckle finish it up, fast and furious. Read More

  • Paringa Shiraz 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Attractively perfumed on the nose with floral aromas of violet and white flowers leading to measured tones of cocoa and vanilla, some dried herbal notes, hints of roast beef and black berry fruit. Rich, a touch chewy, but fresh in the mouth with a gentle softness that makes this both bold and yet supple in the mouth. the flavors are a touch mud... Read More
