Burton McMahon Georges Chardonnay

Burton McMahon Georges Chardonnay

2020 Chardonnay

Yarra Valley, VIC

Modern Chardonnay from top Upper Yarra vineyards

From $40per bottle

    Description

    The Georges Vineyard is situated in Seville East, approximately 180 metres in altitude, featuring grey soils on a north facing slop. Clone is I10V1. This cooler sub region of the Yarra Valley is perfect for making focused and pure Chardonnay styles.

    Fruit is hand-picked to ensure only clean, healthy bunches are selected. The fruit is then whole bunched pressed and the juice settled overnight in tank. This was followed by a light racking directly to barrel (approximately 95% solids) where natural fermentation takes place. MLF is not encouraged and wines are sulphured directly after primary. The wine is matured for 10 months in 30% new (225 – 500L) French oak barrels. Finally, the wine is racked from barrel to tank and filtered to bottle.
