expert reviews about
Bass Phillip Estate Vineyards `21' Pinot Noir
Angus Hughson (2006 Vintage) says
Phillip Jones is a maverick with his wines horded by collectors nationwide. Traditionally he releases an exceptionally rare Reserve as well as Premium and Estate wines from each vintage but in 2006, the 21st anniversary of the first wines from Bass Phillip, Phillip has chosen to bottle them all together as a single wine. It is a Pinot of great depth and structure, with perfumed red fruits and dusty, meaty aromas underlined by great fruit density and fine tannins.
