Description

A thoroughly beautiful wine, tremendously detailed and fragrant, unfolding more aromas and flavours as it interacts with the air.

The back-label advises us to “Allow it to breathe for at least three hours before drinking”. Well, my tasting of it was outstanding from the first sniff and sip, and I’d estimate it was in the glass no more than 20 minutes before I got to it. But several hours after drawing the cork (Bass Phillip still uses cork, albeit a polymer-tipped Procork) it was, if anything, showing more detail and charm. I scored it 98, which is as high as I’ve ever gone for an Australian pinot noir. Huon Hooke, The Real Review
