'A pioneering vineyard of the Yarra Valley's modern wine story, Seville Estate has a picturesque location among rolling hills and pastures. Mature gums and old orchards share this southern part of the valley with grape vines, and the feel is less fussed than the vineyard country further north. New owners maintain the estate's quality tradition, the cellar door is as friendly and relaxed as ever, the old label design is back, and young Dylan McMahon, grandson of founder Dr Peter McMahon, is an accomplished winemaker. Seville Estate continues in good hands.' Ralph Kyte-Powell
When Dr Peter Mc Mahon planted the first vines at Seville Estate in 1972, it marked the rebirth of the Yarra Valley as a premium wine region. By the end of the decade Dr McMahon and his wife Margaret, along with producers such as Mount Mary, Yeringberg, Yarra Yering, St Huberts and the like were fashioning wines that served to re-establish the lofty reputation the Yarra Valley had enjoyed in the 19th century.
From its first vintage, Seville Estate quickly established itself as one of the Yarra Valley's finest producers. Surprisingly in a region more renowned for its red wines produced from Cabernet and Pinot Noir, it was the Seville Estate Shiraz that received the most attention, quickly becoming one of Victoria's most sought after wines. These wines that have been called "one of Victoria's best kept secrets" are now some of the most stylish on the market, with back vintage tastings showing their superb ageing capacity.
Today 35 years after Peter and Margaret started the dream; Seville Estate enters its third phase with new owner Graham and Margaret Van Der Meulen. They are fully hands-on in the vineyard, winery, and cellar door and plan to continue Seville's long-established record of producing consistently high quality wines.Visit Website
