- The Home of Artisan Australian Wine!
This is Mac Forbes' latest addition to the EB (Experimental Batch) range. A small patch of Pinot Meunier became available, so Mac jumped at it. He sticks to the Mac Forbes winemaking ethos here: wild ferments, neutral oak, no adjustments. It's about freshness, structure and purity. And Mac has nailed it. This is excellent value. If you generally like Mac's vibe with Pinot Noir, the Meunier will be right up your alley.
What it Tastes Like
Super light and floral with hints of ruby grapefruit, raspberry and fresh picked aromatic herbs. It has a feathery structure. Almost wispy or waif like - but the chomp of gravelly tannin keeps it focused and on track. Super fresh - geez this feels like Spring.
This small plot of meunier was planted in the 80’s on three soil types. Winemaking is classic old school. No new oak, unfiltered, unfixed, natural yeast.
Closure: Screw Cap
Bottle Size: 750ml
About the Producer
If you love premium and artisanal Australian wine, Mac Forbes is a name you need to know. He’s not only one of the country’s most talented young winemakers, but he’s an influential spokesman for the concept of ‘terroir’, believing that wine should represent a time and a place.
Mac specialises in single vineyard Pinot Noir from the Yarra Valley. His wines are delicate and finely etched, characterised by subtlety and grace. His Chardonnays are loved by those who look for fruit purity rather than winemaking artifice in the variety, his array of off-dry Rieslings from the Strathboogie Ranges are some of the country’s most unique. And his ever-expanding range of experimental wines are a treasure-trove for the curious drinker.
The Yarra Valley stands tall as one of the country’s finest cool-climate wine regions. Only a short jaunt from Melbourne, the Yarra has become a tourist hot-spot for its stunning scenery, high quality produce, and of course, as the home to some of the country’s most iconic wine producers. From the extraordinarily elegant Cabernets and Syrahs that populate the ‘Valley floor’, to the precise and complex versions of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir that hail from the higher climes of the Yarra, this region is diverse and in a state of change. As temperatures rise and phylloxera infiltrates each pocket of the Yarra Valley, the range of alternative varieties from continental Europe is sure to increase to create a more colourful picture of the region. The Yarra embodies so much of what is great about the modern Australian wine scene.
