Mac Forbes is part of the ever-growing band of funky Pinor Noir producers from cool-climate vineyards sites harnassing the true expression of terroir. Mac is a lover of the hands-on approach to winemaking and takes that minimalist approach to his Yarra Valley wines. It is a wonderful balance between opulent and glugable fruit alongside real elegance and structure. A window into the Pinot Noir future here in Australia.
here's no fuss here, it's complex and fruit-laden and lengthy but at all points it seems unforced and uncomplicated. Nothing is over-wrought. Dark cherries, undergrowth, sappy spice, perfumed brightness. So easy to drink and like. Crushed leaf notes through the finish. Deceptively insistent tannin.
