Bass Phillip

Premium Chardonnay 2013

Mid yellow in colour. Aromas of lemon with yellow peach and a hint of sulphides. A gravelly minerality. On the palate an opulent style - generous in the mouth. Medium to full bodied - never becomes cloying because of Phillip’s penchant for natural acidity. The following night a strange sooty note I took to be sulphidic or oak derived. An impressive old school type Chardonnay. Phillip Jones, a great producer of Pinot Noir, unsurprisingly makes excellent Chardonnay. — 10 days ago

Moonambel Shiraz 2012

OMG!!! If you’re lucky enough to own one of these (or are super lucky to own a case) drink it! It’s at its prime or just past - amazing structure and balance. Beautiful young fruits and acid on the front, amazingly long in the mid (like watch-a-movie long) and an expected, but rarely fulfilled finish and mouthfeel! This is an exceptional bottle and if anyone on here feels they have a few too many in their collection I’ll gladly make it worth your while to taste this Victorian princess again!!! — 10 days ago

Premium Gippsland Pinot Noir 2009

Light to mid Ruby in colour. Red and dark fruit florals like Plums also rose petals and sous bois like compost heap. Palate is quite stolid and deep - needs more time to add complexity. A natural acidity still present ( Phillip Jones always bangs on about natural acidity and would never add acid). After an hour or so in the decanter and vigorous swirling you could smell this wine for days. I believe HH’s drinking window of 2016 to 2021 is conservative and should leave my last one for a couple of years to at least 2022. — 19 days ago

@Ron R Yes Ron - very much a boutique producer. I suspect most of it gets sold in Australia.
