Seville Estate Pinot Noir 2018

Seville Estate Pinot Noir 2018 Victoria Yarra Valley

$38.35

Seville Estate Pinot Noir 2018 – Beautifully perfumed and lifted showing red berry fruits, spice and hint of sweet nutty oak. The wine is complex showing cherry/ strawberry fruits matched with more earthy characters of rhubarb and nutmeg. Whole bunch fermentation adds lift, savouriness and texture to the wine. The tannins are fine and supple while the acidity adds freshness and length to the finish. A great Pinot Noir that (while young) deserves a decanter before showing its true potential.

Winemaking

Seville Estate wines are made with minimum intervention, with the varietal and site expression in mind. Winemaking techniques are delicate and labour-intensive based around showcasing the true fruit characters, not artefact. All our Estate wines are fermented using indigenous yeasts.   

Our Chardonnay (including the Blanc de Blancs) and Riesling are barrel-fermented. Varying amounts of new oak (Estate and Reserve Chardonnay only), percentage of solids and larger oak formats are used across the wines depending on the style and vintage. The wines are treated oxidatively pre and during fermentation to ensure a healthy fermentation. After fermentation the wines are sulphured and kept in a reductive environment. Malo Lactic Fermentation is not encouraged.

For our red wines, a broader amount of techniques is used depending on the varietal and vintage conditions. Although, most wines are generally cold soaked before fermentation, using differing percentages of whole bunch and pumped over. The wines are then delicately pressed off and run to barrel, matured for 1 year and bottled without finning or filtration. Our Pinot and Cabernet see a small percentage of new oak, and the Shiraz uses only older 500lt puncheons. All coopers are judiciously chosen so the oak characters are well integrated without dominating the fruit or the tannins of the wine.   


Winemaker, Dylan McMahon

Dylan McMahon was on track to become an electronic engineer until he decided to follow his destiny and make wine. His grandfather Dr Peter McMahon planted the first vines at Seville Estate in Victoria’s Yarra Valley in 1972.

Dylan spent his first years working under the direction from previous winemakers Alistair Butt and Iain Riggs at Seville Estate and Brokenwood. Dylan feels fortunate to have travelled in his early career working vintages at Hugel & Fils (2002), Domaine Paul Blanck (2003) and Jean Claude Boisset (2008) in Burgundy. 

Graduated from Charles Sturt Uni in Wagga with a bachelor of Wine Science in 2008. Dylan took over as winemaker in 2004 and continues the wine styles that Dr McMahon believed in. Seville Estate has since won extensive trophies and medals and maintains a red five star rating through James Halliday wine companion.  

Dylan regularly judges at Wine Shows around the country which is crucial to continuing his knowledge and skills in the industry. He also sits on local industry based committees contributing his time to help improve and develop Yarra Valley wines. 

Peter McMahon has undoubtedly been a notable influence on Dylan’s chosen career, “My grandfather retired in 1996. I’ve learnt from him that while concentration is important in wine, elegance and finesse is the key to our wine.”
