About
Medium bodied at most, sappy and animated, redcurrant and pomegranate, fine burr of kitten’s tongue tannin, pleasing sense of delicacy, and pretty fine length. Delicious.

The Wine Front

"One thing you have to say about Bass Phillip, is that the quality does ratchet up with the price…to a certain extent. Spice, red fruits, rose petal and vanilla, a bit of animal fur and earth, perhaps. Medium bodied at most, sappy and animated, redcurrant and pomegranate, fine burr of kitten’s tongue tannin, pleasing sense of delicacy, and pretty fine length. Delicious." - Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)

Additional Info

From the Producer

BACKGROUND

Original Estate vineyard; 8,500 vines/HA; specific plot cropping at approx. one tonne/acre, often blended with the best fruit from our Leongatha Vineyard. Wine with attractive, rich fruits in the mid-palate, with the strength to improve up to ten years in the cellar.

CURRENT VINTAGE: 2015

The 2015 vintage has delivered red wines with varietal purity, fresh natural acidity, tangy minerality and overall balance: one of our best vintages. These are great wines from Bass Phillip, and they are all capable of mediumlong-term cellaring....... However, they are beautiful to drink now!! All the reds need one hour breathing after pulling the cork.
