About The Pack
Here's the three brilliant value Yarra Valley releases from Mac Forbes in 2017.
Pinot, Syrah and Chardonnay - all absolutely delicious.
The 2017 vintage suited Mac down to a T and here's the proof.
2017 Mac Forbes Yarra Valley Syrah
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.Read more about 2017 Mac Forbes Yarra Valley Syrah
2017 Mac Forbes Yarra Valley Pinot Noir
Mac Forbes is passionate about Pinot Noir, and his 'Yarra Valley' release is the perfect way to get to know his unique style.
It comes from declassified portions of Mac's six single vineyard Pinots, taking on characters of each to present a beautifully balanced wine that reflects as good as any other $30 wine what quality Yarra Pinot is all about.
This gives the drinker an immediate insight into what Mac Forbes Pinot Noir is all about. He stands for quality, and this characterful Pinot this is sensational value.

2017 Mac Forbes Yarra Valley Chardonnay
The Yarra Valley is one of the homes of Australian Chardonnay and is definitely an area of expertise for Mac Forbes.
All of his Chardonnays strike that lovely balance between old world elegance and finesse, with new world fruit and freshness. They’re superb. It's a blend of fruit from our Healesville, Hoddles Creek and Woori Yallock vineyards, designed to capture the essence of Yarra Valley Chardy.
This may be Mac’s ‘entry level’ Chard but the wonderful 2017 vintage has offered up a top drink here.
This is one of those 'cult following' wines that always sells out and offers terrific value.
The 2017 will mature beautifully as noted by Gary Walsh in his 93+ point review.Read more about 2017 Mac Forbes Yarra Valley Chardonnay
