By Bass Phillip
A complex wine with superb fruit intensity and structure, Bass Phillip’s Estate Pinot Noir displays vibrant red berry fruit and layers of earthy, minerally complexity that unfurl and evolve over time. The biodynamically managed Estate vineyard is close-planted to 8,500 vines/hectare and cropped at a low one tonne/acre. Soils in the area are free-draining and mineral rich which can encourage high vigour. This, coupled with the region’s high rainfall, can lead to disease pressure; therefore, careful management of the canopy is essential. Owner/winemaker Phillip Jones’ meticulous management of the vineyard ensures the Estate Pinot Noir consistently expresses enchanting fruit purity, multi-layered complexity and a sense of place unlike any other in Australia.

Huon Hooke, The Real Review

Medium red/purple colour, bright and youthful, a bouquet of cherry and spices, attractive and bold, if a little straightforward. The wine is light to medium-weight, with some extract and texture, the tannins gentle but present on the mid-palate and finish, while the core has delicious fruit sweetness and a touch of succulence. A fine pinot to drink now or keep in the medium-term.
