About The Wine

Mac Forbes is passionate about Pinot Noir, and his 'Yarra Valley' release is the perfect way to get to know his unique style.

It comes from declassified portions of Mac's six single vineyard Pinots, taking on characters of each to present a beautifully balanced wine that reflects as good as any other $30 wine what quality Yarra Pinot is all about.

This gives the drinker an immediate insight into what Mac Forbes Pinot Noir is all about. He stands for quality, and this characterful Pinot this is sensational value.

Tiny volumes were made so get in quick!

About Mac Forbes

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, Chardonnay and Cabernet 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.

Critic Reviews

DDS review

Great showing here from Mac in '17. This is light and fresh, a dainty pixie-like Pinot Noir flush with white strawberry and sweet cherry flavours. It's on the lighter side of medium bodied but the flavour is packed in tight. A kiss of smoke and wild berries. A long spindly web of tannin trails behind. Such good gear. Bargain. If you like Mac's way with Pinot Noir, back up the truck for the 2017 vintage. - Different Drop Wine Team

The Wine Front

"It’s bony, sappy and spicy, has a distinct ‘mulchy’ thing going on, strawberry the main fruit. Light in body, again spicy and mulchy, a touch smoky, with light tannin, nervy acidity and a gentle dusting of tannin. Finish tends towards sour and sappy, but there’s an energy and vibrancy here that, I think, will show well with a few more years in bottle." - Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)
