Since the first vintage in 1976, Seville Estate has cemented its position as one of Australia’s premium wineries, consistently receiving widespread acclaim and many prestigious awards, both in Australia and internationally.
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.
Peter and Margaret’s grandson, Dylan McMahon joined Seville Estate in 2000, and became the chief winemaker in 2004, following the passion ignited a generation before. Dylan was on track to become an electrical engineer until he decided to follow his destiny and make wine.
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.”
