BASS PHILLIP WINES Estate Pinot Noir, South Gippsland 2015

A complex wine with superb fruit intensity and structure, Bass Phillip’s Estate Pinot Noir displays vibrant red berry fruit and layers of earthy, minerally complexity that unfurl and evolve over time. The biodynamically managed Estate vineyard is close-planted to 8,500 vines/hectare and cropped at a low one tonne/acre. Soils in the area are free-draining and mineral rich which can encourage high vigour. This, coupled with the region’s high rainfall, can lead to disease pressure; therefore, careful management of the canopy is essential. Owner/winemaker Phillip Jones’ meticulous management of the vineyard ensures the Estate Pinot Noir consistently expresses enchanting fruit purity, multi-layered complexity and a sense of place unlike any other in Australia.

Region South Gippsland

Gippsland is named after a former Governor of Victoria. Considered both a wine region and a zone, Gippsland extends from just east of Melbourne through to the southern NSW border. Vines were originally planted as early as the 19th century however the modern revival of the region’s viticulture did not occur until the 1970’s. An enormous geographical region – similar in size to Belgium, it is comprised of coastal plains and predominantly south-facing slopes of the foothills of the Great Dividing Range. The region is divided into three geographical areas, South, East and West. South Gippsland located about 100 km east of Melbourne, is a true cool climate area. Significant maritime influence ensures it is the wettest, coolest and windiest sub-region, providing ideal conditions for growing Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. East Gippsland has a more Mediterranean style climate, with West Gippsland the driest and warmest area of the three. Soil compositions vary across the region from silty loams

Soil compositions vary across the region from silty loams over sedimentary and volcanic derived rock in the coastal regions to weathered granitic and volcanic soils in the foothills. Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon are the principal varieties. A region dominated by small family run estates, Gippsland has garnered a reputation over the years particularly for fine Chardonnay and Pinot Noir.

Winery BASS PHILLIP WINES

Established in 1979, Bass Phillip is located in prime dairy country near Leongatha in South Gippsland in an area widely known for its regular rainfall pattern. The vineyards have a north-easterly aspect and are planted on deep silty loams with high iron content, a factor that gives tremendous colour to the fruit. Winemaker Phillip Jones is a perfectionist and crops his fruit at incredibly low levels to achieve his objectives in flavour development. The vineyard has been biodynamically farmed since 2002 and winemaking is deliberately low-interventionist. For technocrats the Bass Phillip Pinot Noirs are maddeningly different and difficult to define. The wines can be incredibly complex and sinuous constantly evolving and changing in the glass.
