Bass Phillip Estate Pinot Noir 2018 - Gippsland Vic
Bass Phillip estate is located at in South Gippsland, about 150 kilometres south-east of Melbourne. This small, 10 acre vineyard, established by Phillip Jones in 1979, has provided wines of depth and complexity since 1984 is rapidly acquiring a reputation not dissimilar to the great domains of Burgundy.
This has a strikingly complex, intense nose with a rich array of cherries and berries, grapefruit and pomegranate, plenty of fruit spice, light pepper and a gently creamy, baking-spice oak thread. The palate has a very rich, intense delivery of beautifully ripe red cherries, framed in fine yet sturdy tannins. Long, fresh and energetic finish. Drink or hold.
