Critic Reviews

“First comes the primary red fruit, then dried spices and herbs, ground black pepper, a bit of mushroomy, vineyard floor and some toasted-oak nuances. It both glides and prick- les the tongue with tangy freshness and textural richness. Tannins are present throughout, sturdy yet fine. Drink now or cellar for at least a decade.”

“Saturated garnet. Vibrant, mineral, and spice-accented red fruit preserve, potpourri, and vanilla qualities on the intensely aromatic nose. Juicy, alluringly sweet, and focused on the palate, offering juicy raspberry, kirsch, cola, spice cake, and succulent herb qualities that flesh out with aeration. It finishes extremely long and precise, with polished tannins making a late appearance.”

About The Winery
Bass Phillip, specialists of high-quality Pinot Noir and Chardonnay wines, was established in 1979 in the Southeastern corner of Australia. Bass Phillip is named after two men of pioneering spirit, foresight, and leadership in Australia: George Bass, an explorer of the Australian Coast, and Arthur Phillip, a British admiral who set up the first permanent European colony on the Australian continent in 1788. Founded by Phillip Jones, a Burgundy lover who began his career in telecommunications and IT, Bass Phillip was the result of a meticulous search for the appropriate Australian region and organic techniques to develop Pinot Noir wines with depth and fine texture. Over the past 25 years, the Bass Phillip vineyards have grown to 14 hectares, much like a small Burgundy Domaine. Today, united with a singular mission to produce terroir-driven wines of purity, elegance, texture, and complexity, the winemaking and winegrowing team, led by JeanMarie Fourrier, are the stewards of Bass Phillip. Armed with passion and a combination of experience and youthful exuberance, the team crafts some of the finest expressions of Burgundian varieties in Australia.
