Bass Phillip Estate Pinot Noir 2004

Tasted blind, this wine reminded me a little of Giaconda - not because they taste similiar, but because both have such clarity of pinot noir flavour that you think the wine must be from Burgundy, whereas in reality I suspect it is simply that the fruit is too good for many Burgundies. Soupy in appearance, the 2004 vintage had an aroma and palate that was cherry like and the palate showed a bit of length. It's a good well made varietal wine, but comes at a price. 85 points.
