Burton McMahon Gippsland Pinot Noir 2016
$39.00 – $456.00
The Burton McMahon range is focused on strictly limited releases of small batch Chardonnay and Pinot Noir from Victoria. From the vineyard to the winery, the Burton McMahon philosophy is about attention to detail, and creating wines true to their terroir.
Pinot Noir is handpicked and de-stemmed into 3t open fermentation tanks, where 30% whole bunches are added. Must is cold soaked for four days prior to wild yeast fermentation with no temperature control used. Open ferments are hand plunged daily. Wine is gently pressed off skins and run straight to French oak for maturation on lees. Approximately 30% new oak is used, being larger 300 & 500 litre barrels. Following maturation (10 months), the wine is carefully racked and bottled with no filtration or fining.
