2014 Bass Phillip Vintage Release

Recent wine reviews:   Huon Hooke

You probably know that Huon Hooke has a very realistic wine assessment scheme:  even very good wines scoring high 80’s & low 90’s…..   he rates wines in a balanced & matter-of fact manner.  Here are some of his recent comments about 2014s:

“The 2014s are very polished wines, in keeping with the more disciplined Bass Phillip style of recent years."

PREMIUM PINOT NOIR 2014

Deep red colour with a trace of purple; lovely complex meaty charcuterie bouquet. The palate is rich, full and expansive. The flavour, texture and weight of the wine are superb. It can be enjoyed now but decanting is recommended. Lovely fleshy extract; a tip-top pinot with a big future. Lush sweet fruit, tobacco, foresty notes, savoury; loads of fine-grained tannins. Long and lovely. Drinks well now but can be kept for many years. (tasted 18/7/2016)     Drink 2018 to 2034:    score   97 points

ESTATE PINOT NOIR 2014

Lovely wine, rich and concentrated, deep and fleshy, with marvellously detailed flavour and profound depths as well as balance. Enormous persistence. A wine of beauty and harmony, elegance and refinement. A stand-out wine. (tasted 18/7/2016)    Drink 2016 to 2026:   score   96  points
