About The Wine

The Yarra Junction Pinot Noir is the softest and perhaps the most generous of the 2017 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 2017'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.

Expert Reviews

Critic Reviews

DDS review

Supple yet structured is the message here. Iron-filing tannins, graphite, more muscle, from the 80% bunch but you can't see it. Some juiciness and succulence but a bit more architecture than Coldstream. Red fruits and florals. Pretty as a picture. Yum. - Different Drop Wine Team

The Wine Front

"Strawberry conserve, a whole lotta bunch and spice, almost into the sauce zone. Light in body, Kumato® tomato juiciness, fine emery tannin, a slightly sour tang, stalks and red berries. Decent finish. It’s interesting, and pretty good, but a bit under-done for me." - Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)

Additional Info

From The Producer

Yarra Junction is our coolest site located in the far eastern Yarra Valley, next to Wesburn. Situated on gravelly soils, this north eastern site receives cooling influences off the surrounding mountains and is protected from the afternoon sun. Yarra Junction will appeal to those who prefer a more accessible style. It offers femininity and fragility almost within the context of a classic European Pinot.

FaQs
Do I have to order in dozens?

No, please mix it up! You can order wines in any quantity and variation you like. You can order 1 bottle or 50. We challenge you to make the ultimate mixed pack of wine!

Are there volume discounts?

Yes we offer volume discounts on larger orders. Orders over $499 get a 5% and orders over $999 get a 10% discount. This will be automatically applied during checkout.

How does the price match work?

Everyday Low & Consistent Pricing is something we strongly believe in. We want our customers to feel confident they are always getting the best price. If you see a price lower somewhere else let us know and we'll match it. We'll even retrospectively refund you if you have already purchased from us but you see a lower price somewhere later on. Our price match policy can be seen here.

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me?

This means we are running low on stock of that wine. So for example, if the website will only allow you to add 3 bottles and no more, then that is all we have of that particular wine. The good news is we may be able to order more for you. Just contact us on 1300 668 385 or hello@differentdrop.com and we'll organise the additional quantity for you.

Does Different Drop have a physical store?

Can I special order a wine you do not sell?

If it’s doable, then we’ll make it happen. Just contact us directly via phone, chat or email and we’ll find out for you right away. Please note that in most cases special orders such as these will need to be in full case lots (6 or 12 bottles).
