    Bass Phillip Reserve Pinot Noir is one of Australia's leading Pinot Noirs. Hailing from a small vineyard plot at Bass Phillip's "Estate" vineyard at Leongatha South, Gippsland, Victoria. The winery uses close planting, low cropping, natural winemaking, and no toxic chemicals. They respect the forces of nature, driven bu the Earth, Planets, and the Moon. The resulting wine has a long flavour, is complex and multi-layer, but supple & fine. 

    A power of fruit, a power of oak, powerful tannin and a sustained finish. The back label advises that the wine should be allowed to ‘breathe’ for at least two hours prior to drinking and I wouldn’t argue with that, not least to give the oak time to settle in. This pinot noir tastes of smoky vanilla and cranberry, mineral, spice, red/black cherry and orange rind. It holds you in its gaze. It’s raked with dry, autumnal tannin, leaf matter smattered through. But it’s the glossiness of the oak, and the associated fruit, that really wins and/or carries the load, and the day. It looks for all the world as though it’s going places. - Campbell Mattinson, Wine Front, 94 Points
