Mac Forbes Yarra Valley Pinot Noir 2020
Fine Yarra Valley Pinot
Since our first vintage in 2005, we have been making steady progress in our quest to make distinctive soulful wines. Over the last couple of years we have made significant inroads into this ambition via leasing some older wonderful vineyards. A focus on rehabilitation, soil and vine health and critically plant adaptation has been embraced across all sites. We hope you enjoy the wines and can see the progression that comes from increased control and the joy that comes from working with some truly unique sites.
The Yarra Valley label is the entry into our Pinot Noir and Chardonnay wines. ‘Yarra Valley’ is a blend of declassified barrels from our grower vineyards and the Mac Forbes single vineyard sites. They represent a snapshot from across the valley and our vineyards. Generally, they can be enjoyed young but cellaring will reward with increased complexity.
The Yarra Valley Pinot is a blend of fruit from grower vineyards and properties that we farm across both the upper Yarra and the Valley floor.’ Winery notes
Hand picked. Fermentation – 20% whole bunch, foot stomped & hand plunged in open vats. Average 15 days on skins. 10 months maturation in old oak. Mac picks early.
Fruit hails from a select group of growers from Coldstream, Woori Yallock, Hoddles Creek and other areas.
The barrels that went into this blend did not quite make the grade for his single vineyard wines.
The unpredictable 2020 season in the Yarra Valley all ended remarkably well and fruit quality shined thanks to the maturity and stability of vines of best parcels. Mac says: ” Pinot is a fickle mistress, but we do love her!”
Lowest yields seen in decades. Heady fragrance a riot of wild red and black fruits, savoury spice, elegant and fine boned structure.. What a great introduction to Mac Forbes fine Pinot Noir. This is bloody delicious!
