“2019 was renowned Pinot producer, Phillip Jones’s last vintage. And what a vintage to go out on. Lucid and detailed with heady aromas of red berries, mushroom, dried leaves, herbs, flowers and vanilla with a structured, pow- erful palate of bright tangy fruit and fine tannins. Drink now–2033.”

“Shimmering straw-gold. A suave, highly aromatic bouquet features tangerine, pear nectar, iodine, buttered toast, and fresh fig qualities, and vanilla and floral notes emerge as the wine opens up. Well-concentrated and focused on the palate, with a core of juicy acidity bracing powerful citrus and orchard fruit, honeysuckle, buttered toast, and saffron flavors. Rich but refreshingly lithe, delivering superb finishing clarity and floral-accented persistence.”

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.
