Mac Forbes Pinot Noir Yarra Valley Woori Yallock 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

The Woori Yallock vineyard is owned by the Fergusons and it's the jewel in the Mac Forbes' range. Located in upper Yarra, Woori is the coolest, highest, most southerly vineyard and is the last Pinot block picked each year. Planted in 1995 on own roots at an elevation of 100-145m it is only 1.3 Ha while the soils are grey loam over brown, gravely clay. The 2010 release is simply a brilliant wine. Pure class. It is somehow more powerful and more seductive than its compatriots. A stunning wine with oodles of pure fruit and spice, superb depth and lacy tannins. More vinosity; more Pinosity! It's certainly a wine that will take a little longer to unfurl into its ethereal best, though even now it looks ravishing and brilliantly balanced. A poster child for the 2010 release.

Mac Forbes Wines:
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. ... Read more
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
