About The Pack

Mac Forbes' 2017 white releases are outstanding. 

These are fine and detailed wines that tell a unique story of the Yarra Valley.

These three wines are perfectly built for the cellar - tightly wound, balanced to perfection. These are the finest white wines we've ever scene from this Yarra Valley maestro.

2017 Mac Forbes Hoddles Creek Chardonnay

Mac Forbes' Chardonnays are more delicate and nuanced examples of Chardonnay from the Yarra.

Just like with his single vineyard Pinots the focus is entirely on expressing the site from which the wine comes from - the grape is just the vehicle to do so. This comes from Tony Jordan's vineyard in Hoddles Creek - the highest altitude site that Mac works with and also the only one with red volcanic soils.

The resulting wine in 2017 is linear and packed with flavour. Tightly structured and focused but with amazing clarity of fruit.

It's a glorious drink and a truly unique and characterful expression of premium Yarra Valley Chardonnay.

2017 Mac Forbes Wesburn Chenin Blanc

This is the final release of Wesburn Chenin Blanc.

Mac feels that this variety matches perfectly with with the Wesburn vineyard. It's a textural, flinty version of the variety. Immensely cellar-worthy and finely detailed. 

On the list of the country's best Chenin Blancs, this sits in the top echelon.

A phenomenal final release of this unique wine, Wesi Chenin going out with a bang.

This will unwind in the bottle for the next decade or more.

2017 Mac Forbes Woori Yallock Chardonnay

This is arguably the finest Chardonnay to ever be produced by the hands of Mac Forbes.

The Woori Yallock vineyard is Mac's baby. Planted in 1995, the 'School House Block is owned by the Ferguson family. Mac has been working the vineyard since 2012 and the resultant wines have been spectacular.

This is a Chardonnay with amazing intensity. It's wound tight but has a glorious generosity of fruit. Oak sits firmly in the background, Mac allowing the site to shine in the glass.

If a more elegant style of Chardonnay appeals to you, this will be one of the finest additions to your cellar this year.
