About The Wine
Coldstream is one of warmer sub-regions in Mac's portfolio, with the vineyard located right at the entrance of the valley floor.
This is a mid-weight Pinot with a relatively darker colour and fuller mouthfeel - all in the context of Mac's crunchy, paler style! Dark cherry and raspberry, fairly generous on the palate and enjoys some velvety tannins.
Soft, like being wrapped in a silky sheet, it's one Pinot that will have you enamoured at first sip.
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 winemakers, but he’s one of the most influential spokesmen for promoting the concept of Australian ‘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 Pinot Noirs are fine-boned, the Chardonnays are adored by lovers of fruit purity rather than winemaking artifice, and his array of off-dry Rieslings from the Strathbogie Ranges are among the country's most interesting.
Additionally, his ever-expanding range of experimental wines is a treasure-trove for the curious drinker.
