2019 Yarra Junction Villages Pinot Noir, Mac Forbes

2019 was a hot and dry vintage, but Mac has somehow maintained a freshness within these wines that’s simply astonishing, without any underripe flavours. Coming from late-ripening vineyards on loamy soils, the Yarra Junction Villages Pinot Noir is elegant and refined, with crunchy red fruit, wonderful floral notes and refreshing acidity. A brilliant example of Mac’s restrained winemaking.

2019 Yarra Junction Villages Pinot Noir, 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.
