Mac Forbes Arneis 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Colour: Pale straw. Brilliant. Nose: Intensely perfumed with talc powder, grapefruit, stones and pear with subtle nutty underlay. Palate: On the palate this wine is showing fine restraint holding in line the pithiness and citrus flavours. Lime, grapefruit (yellow) and a gravelly minerality drive this wine.

Mac Forbes isn't afraid to push the boundaries of cool climate viticulture and winemaking. Eight small vineyards (Yarra Valley and Strathbogie Ranges) are hand tended with the focus being plant and soil health. This respect for soil, vine and environment continues in the winery where fruit balance, purity and minimal inputs are considered paramount in allowing for maximum vineyard expression. Winemaking is old fashioned and thoughtful with each parcel of fruit handled separately. The Yarra Valley comprises a number of sub-regions, providing a platform for pinot noir, chardonnay, syrah and cabernets. The elevated Strathbogie Ranges is cool and dry growing some of the most pure and distinctive riesling in the world. Read less
