Mac Forbes Wines Yarra Valley Chardonnay 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

This is the Mac Forbes villages. Like the Yarra Valley Pinot it is a blend of declassified barrels that did not quite make the cut for the single release wines. In 2010 it is predominantly Woori which goes some way to explaining the fabulous quality making this wine an absolute steal. A scrumptiously delicious solidsy, matchsticky, leesy wine with a core of juicy citrus and white peach fruit. Both elegant and textural, this is the perfect intro to Mac's 2010 Chardonnays which, by the way, are simply the finest set of whites we have encountered from this producer. This is such great value - seriously - so delicious, so much pulp, so much zing and lots of complexity. Yum. A great pourer.

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
