    Mac Forbes philosophy towards pinot is to look after the detail, keep it simple and respect the fruit. The onus is on fruit quality and balance and not on winemaking solutions or corrections. For them winemaking is an extension of the vineyard where they aim to capture the fruit expression and carry this through to bottle. They pick when the fruit is ripe but still crunchy to taste. The Yarra Valley Pinot is a blend of Mac Forbes declassified barrels from their grower vineyards and the Mac Forbes single vineyard sites. 

    The fruit was hand picked, 5% whole bunches, fermented in concrete and open top stainless. Spent on average 18 days on skins. Matured for 9 months in concrete and small and large format oak.

    Displaying a medium dark cherry hue with a brilliant edge, while the nose presents an abundance of nuanced red dark fruits. Subtle spice, hints of carbonic red fruits, and mineral stones add complexity, making it highly enticing. On the palate, there's interplay of gravelly tannins with notes of red candy fruit, dark fresh cherries, and savoury structure, complemented by fine chalky tannins and wonderful length, leaving you thirsty in a very good way.
