Burton McMahon 2019 George's Vineyard Pinot Noir


Matt Burton and Dylan McMahon are both fine young winemakers in their own right; Burton for Gundog Estate in the Hunter Valley and McMahon for Seville Estate in the Yarra Valley. When they come together in this joint venture, however, there is a special chemistry. It would be extremely easy tasting blind to pick this pinot from the Upper Yarra as being a village Burgundy. There is delicacy and structure; strawberry and raspeberry notes with savoury hints and serious elegance. I could drink an awful lot of this. $40.
