2019 Bass Phillip Bin 17K Pinot Noir: Producer notes: 'Primary red fruits moving into dark cherries and blood plums with breathing. Warmth and deliciousness are reflective of the riper nature of the vintage... textural in the mouth with lingering red fruit flavours.'
2019 Bass Phillip Estate Pinot Noir: Producer notes: 'Bright red fruits with a delightful purity. Deeper vinous characters appear with further time in the glass. Seamless and poised palate with refined tannins on a silky mid palate. Finishes fresh and clean.'
2019 Bass Phillip Premium Pinot Noir: Producer notes: 'Initially fruit and oak tussle for attention, with ripe cherries and red plums eventually in the ascendancy. Over time this amalgam will amplify the complexity and become a harmonious whole. The delicious savoury and fruit flavours on the nose are reflected in the mouth-filling flavours of the palate. A glossy, showy wine with a lovely core of fine tannins, providing the assured structure for longevity, depth and length.'
