Upon opening, the 2019 17K reveals primary fruit notes and after half an hour or so the nose becomes much more resolved and interesting, showing its pedigree with bright cherries and blood plums along with raspberry notes.
The wine has a warmth and deliciousness reflecting the riper nature of the vintage. The palate also reflects the ripe vintage with its sumptuous textural mid palate, finely polished core of tannins and lingering red fruit flavours. Give the wine a little time after opening for the fruit flavours to shine... as there is no new oak to hide behind." - Bass Phillip

Producer: Bass Phillip

Bass Phillip is named after George Bass and Arthur Phillip – men of great pioneering spirit, foresight and leadership during the nineteenth century. The Bass Phillip vineyards were first established, many years later, in the southeastern corner of Australia in 1979, specialising in high-quality pinot noir and chardonnay wines.

Winemaking at Bass Phillip is uncompromising and driven by the respect for nature. The vineyards have been organic since 1993 and biodynamic since 2002. All wine production processes at Bass Phillip are guided by the cosmic rhythms that impart energy and vibrancy into the wines.

Made in a simple and traditional manner, with low-cropped vineyards, no irrigation and minimal intervention in the winery, the wines of Bass Phillip display flavours which are characteristic of the region and their individual vineyards. Deep mineral-rich soils, natural high humidity, and cooler temperatures in South Gippsland is also part of the magic that delivers the length, complexity, flavors, balanced acidity, and natural minerality to Bass Phillip wines. Combining undivided attention to detail in the vineyards and winery, and an insatiable passion for quality wine experiences, Bass Phillip produces extraordinary wines one vintage after another.

The most recent vintages of Bass Phillip pinot noir are the best we have produced. We put this down to older vines, more experience in winemaking, and continued sustainable practices in both the vineyards and winery.
