About The Wine

This is the second release of the Mac Forbes Yarra Valley Syrah.

Mac has experimented with Syrah for a few years now, looking for a lighter, more fine boned version of the variety under his 'EB' range. In 2017, the warmer conditions offered fruit ripeness with plenty of flavour from the fruit grown on his home block near Healesville.

This Syrah is filled with spice and plenty of juicy fruit. It sits well and truly in the cool-climate style, however, there is no shortage of flavour.

Lovers of the spicy side of Syrah will find plenty of joy here.

Very high quality Yarra Syrah for a modest price.

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.

Blackberries and blueberries, loads of spicy and glossy texture. Has some nice richness in a slender frame. Beautifully ripe. So delicious. Classic Yarra Syrah and great buying at the price. - Different Drop Wine Team
