Burton McMahon Georges Pinot Noir

Burton McMahon Georges Pinot Noir

2020 Pinot Noir

Yarra Valley, VIC

Stylish Pinot from top Upper Yarra vineyards

From $40.00 per bottle

    Description

    The Georges Vineyard is situated in Seville East, approximately 180 meters in altitude, featuring grey soils on a north facing slop. Clones 777 & 114/115. These cooler sub regions of the Yarra Valley are perfect for making lifted and delicate Pinot Noirs.

    Rose red with a slight pink hue. The wine is beautifully perfumed, with lifted sweet spice and whole bunch characters. Complex and layered, showing earthy and savoury characters, which mark the contribution made by the whole bunches used during fermentation. The wine is more delicate then the Syme but has more secondary flavours of sour cherries, black olive and spice. There is a lovely lightness, where the wine dances across the palate and finishes fresh and lifted. The tannins sit more in the background, just enough to add texture and structure and keep the wine composed. This is an elegant and complex wine that will reward a few years in bottle. Drink 2019-2025.
