Diaphanous and shimmering wine.
About The Wine
The Yarra Junction Pinot Noir is the softest and perhaps the most generous of the 2016 suite of single vineyard wines from Mac Forbes.
It feels like the vintage has given it an extra width, not something generally associated with Mac's exquisitely fine-boned Pinot Noir expression.
The perfume is sweet and floral, the mouthfeel is light and devastatingly easy to drink.
This is the crowd pleaser of the 2016's from Mac. It's the wine that you won't be able to keep your hands off, the one that will stop you drinking his Wesburn and Woori Yallocks before they reach their peak.
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, 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 is a treasure-trove for the curious drinker.
