2018 Bass Phillip Premium Pinot Noir Gippsland – The more classically styled Bass Phillip Premium Pinot Noir shows beautiful, black cherry, floral and gamey aromas, supple, velvety tannins, underlying smoky oak and great flavour length. The fruit is sourced from the low cropping low-input four hectare north-east facing vineyard at Leongatha. Aging takes place in French Alliers oak for 12 to 18 months depending on vintage. The Premium’s “hidden power” is revealed after around five years of bottle age.
Light in body weight but possessing excellent power the palate dishes up red and sour cherry flavours subtlety laced with dried herbs within a vibrant yet restrained mouthfeel over notions of light earth and spicy cedar. There’s bright acidity on the finish and the tannins are finely grained. Long aftertaste of red and sour cherries, fresh strawberries, subtle dried herbs and spicy cedar
