Mac Forbes Hoddles Creek Chardonnay 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

This is Mac's first release from Hoddles Creek and his first foray into the fertile red soils of the upper Yarra Valley. This comes from a site with an elevation of 400mt. Different soils, different altitude, different place, and different wine. A more immediate, open wine than the other single vineyard wines with a juicy, succulent texture, bright, ripe citrus fruit notes and an intensely fresh, crunchy finish. Mouth-watering, refined Chardonnay juice. There is a lot to love here.

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
