Style: Full-bodied red wine aged in French oak
Banger of a wine, approachable at any time of the day. Pours medium garnet in the glass. Aromas of hibiscus tea, cherries, tobacco, cigar ashes, some leather. Quite a complex nose even at this young age. Medium-bodied, high acidity and alcohol, rounded up by a brush of dusty tannins. Superb representation of Nebbiolo, you will for sure love it. Decant about 2 hours before drinking.
Established in 1979 by winemaker Phillip Jones, this iconic winery in South Gippsland was named after legendary Australian explorers George Bass and Arthur Phillip. With a focus on Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, Bass Philip is regarded as the pinnacle of Pinot Noir producers in Australia. Twice awarded ‘Australia’s Best Pinot Noir’, for its Reserve Pinot Noir by James Halliday. Practising organic viticulture since 1993 and further committing to biodynamic since 2002, the non-irrigated vines are restricted, producing concentrated flavorful berries. A non-intervention form of winemaking eschews the use of the toxic spray in the vineyard while in the winery, wild yeast fermentation and minimal additions, fining or filtration results in rich, complex wines brimming with aromatics and a generous mouthfeel.
