2020 Mac Forbes Yarra Valley Merlot

Yarra Valley, Victoria

In a year that caused a lot of pain for growers (drought, fires, rain in February) the grapes that were harvested in the Yarra are of seriously high quality. 'Vibrant aromatics and a bright, refreshing fruit profile are underscored by silky, melt-in-your-mouth tannins. Watch out world, Merlot is making a comeback!' MF

Mac Forbes Merlot Yarra Valley Natural Wine
About the maker

After gaining wealth of experience across vintages in France, Australia and other countries since the age of 18, some of those being extremely well respected, Mac (since 2004) has now taken those refined winemaking and viticulture skills for a project of his own in the Yarra.

Mac's vision is to continually seek out sites that he deems to be strong and unusual. Often these vineyards are unloved when discovered, however through much love, care, listening and learning to each site, he brings these sits to the beauty and healthy they are capable of. Mac's work in the cellar ranges from classical European, with emphasis on soil health and working often with single French varietals, but he also has a more experimental range that focuses more on the enjoyment of drinking than nuances of vintages.
