Burton McMahon George’s Vineyard Pinot Noir 2022


A mix of clones here, with 777 and 114/115, planted in the cooler parts of the Yarra. 175 dozen made. Clones were picked separately. A single whole bunch ferment was then blended with destemmed batches. Wild yeast fermentation and then maturation for ten months on lees in French oak, 30% new. Deep crimson in colour, this wine is elegant and refined with alluring berry notes. Blueberries, cherries, spices and hints of flesh. A lovely fruit-dominant Pinot. The palate reveals an attractive bright cherry character and very fine, silky tannins with excellent length, exhibiting a gentle fade. Drink over the next six to eight years. A cracker.
