Bass Phillip

Exceptional (Reserve Pinot Noir); Outstanding (Premium Pinot Noir) - Langton's Fine Wine Classification IV
5 Star Winery - Halliday Wine Companion

Phillip Jones has been making wine in Gippsland since 1979. Though he makes his wine traditionally in a minimal intervention manner, this belies the level of perfectionism that has come to epitomise Bass Phillip's vineyard practices and winemaking. The wines of Bass Phillip display flavours and characters which show astonishing vibrancy and grace. 

"Truly pushes the boundaries of Australian Pinot Noir greatness."- Lisa Perrotti Brown MW

"Putting it simply, Bass Phillip has made some of best pinot noir I’ve drunk in my whole life, from anywhere of any age." - Robert Geddes MW

"Bass Phillip is renowned for producing some of the best pinot noir in Australia. Established by Phillip Jones in 1979, the vineyards are located at Leongatha in the most southern part of Victoria, Australia, not far from Phillip Island and Wilson's Promontary. Named after early explorers of the region, George Bass and Arthur Phillip, Bass Phillip is located not far from the sea, but far enough inland to experience a continental climate ideal for grape growing."Make no mistake about it...these are brilliant Pinot Noirs, undoubtedly the finest being produced in Australia." - Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate, May 2002
