Bass Phillip Premium Pinot Noir

"While not quite as concentrated or powerful as the Reserve, the premium Pinot Noirs have beautiful, black cherry, floral and gamey aromas, supple, velvety tannins, underlying smoky oak and great flavour length. The fruit is sourced from the low cropping four hectare north-east facing vineyard at Leongatha. Philip Jones’ philosophy is to “allow nature to drive the viticulture and wine making processes”. Natural yeasts, no filtration and extended time on lees are all par for the course. The wine is aged in French Alliers oak for 12 to 18 months depending on vintage. Their “hidden power” is revealed after around five years of bottle age. A Cuvee Rare, which was aged in barrel for an extra six months, was produced 2001. "Andrew Caillard MW
