Bass Phillip is recognized by many observers as the finest pinot noir producer in Australia.
Established in 1979 by Phillip Jones, Bass Phillip specialises in producing world-class Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Driven by their respect for nature and biodynamic farming, grape growing and winemaking are uncompromising in their attention to detail and quality.

Low intervention in the vineyard and in the cellar permits the wines to show flavours and characteristics of the region – length, complexity, balanced acidity, lovely minerality, and with a certain polish and character that makes them truly extraordinary vintage after vintage.

Tasting Notes

93 Points Jeremy Oliver
Deep-fruited and slightly hazy, this profound and meaty Estate pinot does require some cellaring. Its oaky bouquet of cherries and red plums overlies complex suggestions of undergrowth, duck fat and herbal tones. Sumptuous and deeply weighted, it’s long and firm, with layers of fruit and structure backed by sweet cedar/vanilla oak.
