About the Wine

The Bass Phillip Premium Pinot Noir is one of Australia's most iconic wines. Grown on the hallowed soils farmed by Phillip Jones in the Southern part of Gippsland, for many, this represents the zenith of Australian Pinot Noir.

This is a wine of impeccable stature, one which has drawn resounding praise from all who taste it. In his review of the 2015 vintage, Gary Walsh wrote, "So sure-footed and confident, it almost has a swagger." 

If you want to see the full potential of Australian Pinot Noir, this is a wine you must try.

About Bass Phillip

The great Bass Phillip Estate is one of Australia’s most iconic producers. For decades Phillip Jones has farmed his Gippsland plot with adherence to organic and biodynamic farming, the meticulous attention to detail in the vineyard yielding one of Australia’s truly world class wines.

The Bass Phillip Pinot Noir is a benchmark wine, rightfully one of the most collected in the country. Jones’ wines are incredible. They are wines of power, personality and persistence, and need a place in every true collector's 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 medium, long-term cellaring....... However, they are beautiful to drink now!! All the reds need one to two hours breathing after pulling the cork.

The Wine Front

"Quite often I prefer the Premium to the Reserve, which is no bad thing. So sure-footed and confident, it almost has a swagger. Cherry, sweet cinnamon and cedar oak, dried flowers, a little earthy bass. Medium bodied, silky and precise, with delectable savoury and fruit sweet switching, layered and complex already, laced up tight with ultra-fine pixel tannin, and long smashed strawberry and spice finish. A delight. Really needs a few years, or at worst, a good spell in a decanter." - Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)

FaQs
Do I have to order in dozens?

Are there volume discounts?

Yes we offer volume discounts on larger orders. Orders over $499 get a 5% and orders over $999 get a 10% discount. This will be automatically applied during checkout.

How does the price match work?

Everyday Low & Consistent Pricing is something we strongly believe in. We want our customers to feel confident they are always getting the best price. If you see a price lower somewhere else let us know and we'll match it. We'll even retrospectively refund you if you have already purchased from us but you see a lower price somewhere later on. Our price match policy can be seen here.

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me?

This means we are running low on stock of that wine. So for example, if the website will only allow you to add 3 bottles and no more, then that is all we have of that particular wine. The good news is we may be able to order more for you. Just contact us on 1300 668 385 or hello@differentdrop.com and we'll organise the additional quantity for you.

Does Different Drop have a physical store?
