Born and raised in Victoria’s Yarra Valley, Mac Forbes is a leader of Australia’s 21st century winemaking renaissance. Working with many of Yarra’s exceptional cool climate sites, Mac is able to bottle wines with thrilling terroir typicity and vibrancy. In his own words – “We’ve been trying to find cooler sites, revisiting what we’ve previously understood good viticulture to be. As a result, the Yarra Valley is one hundred times more exciting for me than it was 12 years ago.”
The Mac Forbes Yarra Valley Pinot Noir is a blend of fruit from Coldstream, Woori Yallock, Yarra Junction, and Gladysdale vineyards. It was 30% whole bunch fermented and aged 11 months in old oak barrels.
“We have chosen not to provide traditional tasting notes for any of our wines. Our wines hopefully capture vineyard life and vitality. As such the wines are constantly evolving. The only tasting notes that matter are yours.” – Mac Forbes
