Bass Phillip Estate Pinot Noir

The Estate Pinot Noir is Bass Phillip's work horse wine. This is really bad wording. It is their higher volume wine, but it tends to be very high quality none the less. Bass Phillip is known for funky wines, and the 2014 Bass Phillip Estate Pinot Noir is funky alright. There is not much on the front label, so here is the back label.

Bass Phillip wines are not filtered and not fined. It is therefore no major surprise that the colour of the wine is a bit cloudy; still pink, a little developed. On the nose, a lot of perfume and forest notes.

On the palate of this medium-bodied wine, red cherry and spice is quickly followed by very prominent earthy flavours. They linger on the palate. The wine is smooth, but a little hollowed out. Very fine tannins, a little shy, develop on the back palate. This is not a wine from the southern hemisphere as you would expect it.

I would definitely drink this wine now.

Score: 93/++
