Mac Forbes believes the Yarra Valley's best wine is, in fact, the Cabernet blend , rather than Pinot Noir or Chardonnay. He's been inspired by the likes of Mount Mary where he worked for many years, and this blend, named after Mac's father Hugh, is every bit the _highly fragrant, medium-bodied and elegant style_ of Bordeaux blend the region is famous for. The 2015 season in the Yarra Valley was a cracking vintage and has resulted in one of Mac's best releases of the wine to date. A new vineyard for Mac this year, Yarra Glen rather than the Gruyere vineyard for previous releases. This site offering perhaps a little more 'flesh' on release than previous versions of Hugh. If you like your Cabernet blends richly fruited and full-bodied, best to look elsewhere, but for lovers of a more subtle and elegant style, this is simply stunning. Only made in tiny quantities and just a pleasure to drink.

What it Tastes Like

Floral top notes, lovely perfume of violet red and black currant, bayleaf, dried cranberry. Very gentle mouthfeel with great interplay of medium-bodied fruit and finely grained tannin. Tucked in nicely, strides long and elegant with balance aplenty. Effortless Cabernet blend. Ideal for the cellar.
