About The Wine
Mac Forbes makes a suite of single site Chardonnays that denote the sub-regional differences of the variety across the Yarra Valley.
The Yarra Junction Chardonnay is from Mac's coolest site in the eastern pocket of the Valley. Vines set atop gravelley soils produce a more accesible, fruit-forward Chardonnay. While Mac's Chardonnays are always on the leaner side in the conext of the region, the Yarra Junction will show more up-front fruit and allow for great early drinking.
Another stellar release here from one of the best artisan producers in the Yarra Valley today.
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.
