2017 Woori Yallock Chardonnay, Mac Forbes

Mac Forbes is a real magician. He turns Aussie sun into a pure expression of Chardonnay, ageing it in neutral old oak barrels simply for texture. 2017 was a great vintage here, and this is the answer if you’re looking for a textured, complex example.

2017 Woori Yallock Chardonnay, Mac Forbes
Mac Forbes

One of Australia’s brightest stars, with five-star approval from James Halliday, Mac Forbes has moved beyond being “one to watch”. He’s a producer to follow keenly. His first taste of winemaking was as a backpacker-cum-grape picker in France. After graduating from the famed winemaking course at the University of Adelaide, he consulted for estates including Penfolds and Niepoort in the Douro. He makes “honest wines that reflect extraordinary sites”, and his plots in Yarra Valley are carefully chosen and cultivated for their potential to produce expressive wines of stunning balance.
