2015 Mac Forbes Yarra Valley Pinot Noir

Expert Reviews

Nick Stock (2011 Vintage) says
The pale-pink colour here is typical of both the light hand of Mac Forbes and the cooler vintage on offer; it shows a fine array of wild red berry fruits on the nose amid gentle meaty notes and oak spice. The palate is a bright, juicy and tangy red fruit style with strawberry flavour, fine tannins and good length, despite considerable elegance.

This regional amalgam of Yarra Valley pinot is a light cherry-red in colour, and shows bright and elegant raspberry and strawberry fruits, some bracken and sappy notes, and hints of spice - very pure, and quite fragrant too. The palate's crisp and crunchy, with strawberry and wild raspberry fruit flavours and a lithe, juicy acid crunch. Impressive and composed style and length.

A similarly light-bodied wine, the colour fractionally more advanced, the flavours a little more savoury, the palate a touch longer.

Light-bodied, fine and delicate; Mac Forbes' time at Mount Mary evident in the elegant, understated style of these wines; the finish has considerable length and thrust.

A fine, elegant wine with lots of spice and earthy tones; nice weight and texture, and certainly light-bodied; long and savoury on the finish.

Mac Forbes has a knack for working meaty barrel-derived complexity into his pinots. There's a lot going on: charcuterie, sausage meats and smoked cherry fruits, complex stuff indeed! Ripe cherries and some briary complexity on the palate, cedary oak, plenty of soft chewy tannin, and a supple alluring finish. A serious regional wine.

A pretty wine, seemingly effortlessly achieved; brightly flavoured red fruits, with good line and balance; made with a gentle touch
