About The Wine
Mac Forbes is constantly evolving his approach to crafting Pinot Noir.
The key for Mac is always expressing the character of his vineyards with as much clarity as possible. He believes by peeling back layers of winemaking artifice, he can more clearly express the unique characters of his sites.
To that end, this Pinot Noir is all about the fruit. It's aged and fermented exclusively in concrete, removing all oak from the eqation. And he's used just a little whole bunch to give it some structure.
It's a lively, pure, energetic Pinot Noir that showcases the essence of Pinot Noir from the Yarra Valley.
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.
