About The Pack

The Villages wines bridge the gap between Mac Forbes' Yarra Valley range and his Single Vineyard range. If the Yarra Valley wines capture the full voice of the region in full chorus, the Villages wines would be a group of tenors or sopranos, with the Single Vineyard wines playing the soloists.

This sample pack gives you a look at the four beautiful Pinot Noirs from the 2020 vintage. It's a drinking tour of the Yarra Valley through the lens of Pinot Noir. Perfect for a dinner party!

Only a limited amount of packs available.

2020 Mac Forbes Woori Yallock Villages Pinot Noir

The Villages range of Pinot Noir and Chardonnays was first added to the Mac Forbes stable of fine, detailed wines with the 2019 vintage. It bridges the gap between the regional Yarra Valley wines and his Single Vineyard expressions, and wonderfully highlights the sub-regional differences of the Yarra.

Woori Yallock might be the pick of the wines in both the Single Vineyard and the Villages range - they have a wonderful density and power to go alongside Mac's graceful, ethereal touch.

Such a great palate, silky and sinewy, while the pretty red fruit aromatics are incredibly lifted. A high-toned Pinot to match any in the Yarra.

5% whole bunches, 30% foot crushed, nine days on skins, ten months in old oak.

2020 Mac Forbes Yarra Junction Villages Pinot Noir

Yarra Junction, in the higher cooler part of the region, is a late-ripening site, producing both Pinot and Chardonnay with great acid lines, and some latent power. This sang at a recent tasting, so high-toned, with some amaro/ negroni twang.

An exquisitely elegant wine, deft and flavoursome with bouncy red berry fruits, a nice herbal element, and Mac's typical pale, sensual palate.

45% whole bunches, 15 days on skins, ten months maturation in old oak.

2020 Mac Forbes Gladysdale Villages Pinot Noir

Gladysdale is not as well-known as his some other Yarra sub-regions, but Mac bought a vineyard there in 2017 and it quickly became a favourite site. This is more on the spicy, herbal side, incredibly aromatic, and with a slightly darker fruit profile.

10% whole bunches, 17 day on skins, ten months in old oak.

2020 Mac Forbes Coldstream Villages Pinot Noir

Coldstream is one of warmer sub-regions in Mac's portfolio and this is a mid-weight Pinot with a relatively darker colour and fuller mouthfeel - all in the context of Mac's crunchy, paler style!

Dark cherry and raspberry, fairly generous on the palate and enjoys some velvety tannins.

35% whole bunches, 15 days on skins, eight months maturation on old oak.

Are there volume discounts? No, our pricing is designed to be the best in market already - no marking up and then discounting down! For very large orders (weddings, etc) we are open to negotiating though. Just give us a call.

Do we price match? Yes, within reason. 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 consider matching it. We'll even retrospectively issue you store credit if you have already purchased from us but you see a lower price somewhere later on. Our price match policy can be seen here.

Can coupons and discounts be stacked? No, only one discount or coupon can be applied to an order at once.

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 02 8376 8775 or and we'll organise the additional quantity for you.

Does Different Drop have a physical store? No. Just an a warehouse/office. We occasionally do events however, so sign up to our newsletter or follow us on instagram to stay in the loop.
