About

This is the first release of the Mac Forbes Hoddles Creek Pinot Noir.

Mac has cultivated this vineyard for years, bringing it back from the point of neglect. It has been the source of many fine Chardonnays for Mac and his team and they couldn’t have asked for a better year to release the Pinot than from 2015.

This is a light-medium bodied Pinot Noir of lacy delicacy and ethereal beauty. It softly whispers “come hither” rather than commands it.

Mike Bennie awarded it 94 points calling it a “Beautiful expression”. The nuance of this vineyard perfectly captured here by Mac & co. Pinot Noir lovers, indulge yourself here. You’ll be glad you did.

What It Tastes Like

“Delicate, bony, fine, fresh-feeling pinot noir. It’s for those who like their pinot waif-like, delicate, gossamer in texture and finely etched. Just ripe red berries, white pepper, undergrowth and faint white chocolate in perfume. Palate is just ripe berries, piquant spice, cranberry-like but soft acidity. Drapes the palate in light pinot character, and washes away in wisps of fruit, brightness and barely-there tannin. Beautiful expression.” - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)
