Bass Phillip Pinot Noir

"Bass Phillip – named after Australian explorers George Bass and Arthur Phillip – is located in prime dairy country near Leongatha, South Gippsland. The exquisitely balanced single vineyard Estate Pinot Noir draws fruit from the extremely low cropping, closely spaced north easterly facing, four hectare un-irrigated vineyard. The wine is vinified in an open stainless steel fermenter with regular plunging to extract colour and flavour. After fermentation the wine is gravity racked into a combination of new (60%) and old French Alliers oak for a maturation period of around 15 to 18 months. Phillip Jones believes, "The difference between good and great Pinot Noir is texture”. The wine tends to be at its peak after around six years of bottle age."Andrew Caillard MW
