Phillip Titis

Serrat

Close Planted Yarra Valley Grenache 2017

Nose not giving much initially - just an earthy note - fairly contained. Probably opened a little young? The next night it showed red fruited aromatics of raspberry and strawberry. Very fine on the palate and quite delicious. The winemaker and owner Tom Carson with his French wife, Nadege, just won Viticulturalist of the year 2 days ago in the Halliday Wine Awards. They also import a range of Burgundies. In his “spare time “ Tom is also the winemaker at the highly regarded Yabby Lake. — 3 days ago

Philip Togni Vineyard

Ca' Togni Black Muscat 2007

This stuff is just divine year to year. Deep concentration, viscous texture, floral aromatics, and just enough acidity to make you keep pouring. Muscat Hamburg, or Black Muscat is the grape used, and Phillip Togni has made it shine on Spring Mountain. Bing cherries, strawberry/rhubarb pie filling, leather, violets, dried dates, nutmeg, fig jam, milk chocolate. 2007, and it drinks like it'll age another 20 years.. This is a must try. If you don't like sweet wine, try it anyway. Pairs with cherry pie, pumpkin pie, and a good brie cheese plate with fruit jam and nuts. — 5 years ago

Giant Steps

Primavera Vineyard Pinot Noir 2015

Delectable - this is the Applejack Vineyard Pinot Noir. Couldn’t see it in your options. Notes of red cherry with bunchy stalky notes. Root vegetables with fresh tilled loam. Still a lovely red fruited sweetness shining through the savoury bunchy notes on the palate. Of all of the Individual Paddock Pinots from Giant Steps, Applejack Vineyard is my favourite. — 17 days ago

Philip Togni Vineyard

Tanbark Hill Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

Beautiful Napa Cab presents as a classic Bordeaux. Understated elegance. Silky smooth mouthfeel with smooth tannins. Lengthy finish. Second label - no way! This is a beautiful wine with a great QPR. I decanted 3 hours. Opened up slowly. Has potential to age 10 to 15 years. I love Phillip Togni wines. — 3 years ago

Bass Phillip

Since 1979 Pinot Noir 2020

Delectable: This is the new entry level Cuvée from Bass Phillip called “Since 1979 Pinot” not offered in your choices. This is the first vintage with Burgundian winemaker, Jacques Fourrier in charge. The first thing I noticed was how fresh and bursting with red fruits this was. Like raspberry, strawberry and cranberry leaping from the glass. No detectable oak influence - all about the fruit. Very approachable immediately - soft silky and delicious. While the other 3 Pinot Cuvées have increased in price this entry level has reduced to under $50 allowing more wine lovers to be introduced to the best producer of Pinot Noir in Australia IMO. Probably clever marketing. — 11 days ago
