Tren­tham Es­tate Vic­to­rian range TREN­THAM Es­tate, long guided by the skills of Tony Mur­phy, has pro­vided one an­swer to the un­cer­tain­ties of the Mur­ray Dar­ling (the es­tate sits on the Mur­ray at Tren­tham Cliffs, just up­stream of Mil­dura) by cre­at­ing a Vic­to­rian port­fo­lio to sit above the other Tren­tham ranges. Yarra Val­ley Chardon­nay, Heath­cote Shi­raz and Morn­ing­ton Penin­sula Pinot Noir were var­i­ously made in 2005 and 2006, along with a non-vin­tage Mount Mace­don Pinot Chardon­nay. The 2005 Heath­cote Shi­raz ($25, 94 points) and 2005 Morn­ing­ton Penin­sula Pinot Noir ($25, 93 points) both un­der­line the abil­ity of Mur­phy to un­lock the syn­ergy be­tween each va­ri­ety and its cho­sen re­gion.
