Portsea Estate

Victoria | Mornington Peninsula

James' Review

Noted filmmaker Warwick Ross and sister (silent partner) Caron Wilson-Hawley have moved fast and successfully since the first vintage in 2004. Starting out with the luxury of having the first seven vintages made at Paringa Estate by Lindsay McCall and team, Portsea Estate has now built an onsite winery and hired Tim Elphick, who has a wealth of cool-climate winemaking experience. Warwick's film Red Obsession was given high ratings by film critics around the world. It takes an inside look at the Chinese fascination for the greatest wines of Bordeaux.

About

The Portsea Estate vineyard is located on the century old ‘Tintagel’ property, overlooking Bass Strait at the southern tip of Victoria’s Mornington Peninsula. Its unique maritime location and sandy, calcareous soil, underpinned by extensive limestone reefs, distinguish Portsea Estate from other vineyards located on the Peninsula, resulting in wines of distinct regional character.
