Burton McMahon, Syme On Yarra Vineyard, Pinot Noir, Yarra Valley, 2019

Warm spice with crunchy, slightly smoky bacon influences over  perfumed cherry, orange oil and classy oak with distinct woodiness. There’s some meaty reduction that blows off. Medium full with smoky, earthy depth. The tannins are finely knit: small knots, little rumbles that tie up the savoury flesh. Layered, almost soupy complexity carrying a brightness through the tail to provide a lift. Medium term cellaring prospect.

RRP: $40
Alc: 13.5%
Rating: 18.5/20 (93/100)
