About

This would have to be in the running for Australia’s most serious Rosé.

From one of the best seasons in living memory for the Yarra Valley, Mac Forbes has selected fruit from his most famous, the School House Block vineyard in Woori Yallock, to make only his second Rose in a decade.

It’s a wine made with intent. Picked specifically for Rosé, this is a step up for Australian pink wine.

Mike Bennie called it a “Lithe, bright, formidably elegant rose of great interest and drinkability.” in his 94 point review making it one of the highest scoring wines of this style on the Wine Front this year.

This is a step up for Australian Rosé and truly a great drinking experience if you love more serious wines of this style.

What It Tastes Like

“It’s glorious as the style goes. Step aside Terrebrune and Tempier, here’s another one from the serious pink camp. A wonderfully fragrant, rose petal, pot pourri, glace cherry, sage, fennel and floral perfume tumbles out of the glass. Speaking of glass, texture is glassy, slides through the palate, sleek, tight, squeaky with very slender ropes of chalky-mineral tannins and finishes with a smudge of savouriness and tangy acidity. Lithe, bright, formidably elegant rose of great interest and drinkability.” - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)
