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

96 Points James Suckling
An ethereal nose here. This is a very complex and fragrant expression with a layered and detailed style that has abundant flowers, sappy forest wood, bacon fat, wild red cherries, pomegranate and already well-integrated oak. The palate has a very plush, long and lacy feel with very intense red-cherry flavor, bright acidity crunch and a sleek, long run to the finish. Energetic, yet measured, this is terrific pinot.
