2019 Bass Phillip, Gamay, Gippsland

Bass Phillip was founded by Mr Phillip Jones in 1979 at the age of 32. He told us, years ago, that he had planted Cabernet Sauvignon in the early days because his favourite wine was a classified growth Bordeaux and he wanted to replicate it. Fortunately, or unfortunately, not a single grape was grown. He then decided to replace the Cabernet Sauvignon with Pinot Noir and what a fantastic decision he made!

Bass Phillip has been organically farmed since 1993, and biodynamic since 2002. Today, the estate is run by Jean-Marie Fourrier, a very talented Burgundian winemaker that has done an internship with the legendary Henri Jayer. Henri was a French vintner who, it is said, revolutionised Viticulture and winemaking in Burgundy.

Why do we like it?

This is a delicious Gamay, very complex and with several layers of flavours. Macerated strawberries, dried flowers and a very long finish. This is indeed our favourite Gamay in Australia. From the first time we tried it, we totally felt in love with it because it is indeed incredibly well made and delicious. It is a very good wine to have slightly chilled in a nice warm day.
