2011 Mac Forbes Yarra Glen Pinot Noir

Yarra Valley, Victoria

Every now and then Mac likes to pull out an old one. A 2011 Yarra Glen Pinot, like all his reds, the onus is on the fruit quality and balance and not on winemaking solutions or corrections. Located in a sub-region of the Yarra in sandy loam soils. It was wet year so slow and long ripening led to a confectionary, strawberry like red. Gravely tannins, soy and bramble.

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.
