Burton McMahon, George’s Vineyard, Pinot Noir, Yarra Valley, 2019

Dark garnet in colour. Warm, smoky, chary notes\ with black cherry, fallen leaves, bacon bits, rose petals, choc/vanilla oak tinge and torn orange rind. Svelte texture, with black cherry and bitter dark choc depth over earthy, savoury/earthy qualities with a tightly packed tail. A serious expression of Pinot Noir.

RRP: $40
Alc: 13.5%
Rating: 18.25/20 (92/100)
