Burton McMahon George’s Vineyard Chardonnay 2019

A collaboration by Dylan McMahon of Seville Estate in the Yarra Valley and Matt Burton of Gundog Estate. The vineyard is located in Seville East at a moderate 180m above sea level. The fruit is hand picked, the wine naturally fermented. Maturation in French oak (30% new) for 10 months. Bottle image is of 2018, but nought else is different.

Fresh just warm toast aromas over egg shell, yellow citrus and nut butter. Pent up with a tension that doesn’t want to resolve. Intense focus and drive of fruit persistence, offset with the just the right amount of textural grip. A classy release.

RRP: $40
Alc: 12.4%
Rating: 18.75/20 (94/100)
