Established by Phillip Jones in 1979, the Bass Phillip property is located at Leongatha in the most southern part of Victoria, planted to closely spaced, north easterly facing vines, off an unirrigated four hectare site. All grapes are hand picked, minimal additives are employed, batches are innoculated with wild yeasts and boots are worn for a course of foot treading, to be vinified in an open fermenter with regular plunging to extract colour and flavour, followed by gravity fed transfer of the juices to avoid ripping the wine. An extended term on lees and up to eighteen months maturation in a combination of new and prior use lightly toasted French Alliers oak barriques, is followed by hand bottling without filtration.
Deep red colour. Rich bouquets of raspberry, deep, ripe and concentrated aromas of cherry, earth and musk. Fragrant, complex and dark cherry fruit on the palate, a gorgeous mouthful of mint and blackberry, liquorice and currant, nutmeg and spice. A powerful finish closes to long and lingering, densely packed fruit, withering tannins.
