2015 Bass Phillip ‘Premium’ Pinot Noir

$399.00

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.

Description

97 Points Huon Hooke
Deep red colour with a good tint of purple. The bouquet is nutty and oak-influenced, with suggestions of almond meal and freshly-shelled walnut. There are some bunchy vegetal notes. It’s a little closed and needs time to emerge. It’s full-bodied and dense, high-extract, loaded with tannin and lush in spicy flavour. The fruit is lavish as are the tannins. A wholly impressive pinot, which will surely soar in a high trajectory over the next few years. The density, concentration and fleshy extract are mightily impressive, as is the prodigious length. Drink 2019 to 2032.
