User Reviews for Mac Forbes Yarra Valley Chardonnay Chardonnay Victoria Yarra Valley Case

Winemaker's Notes:

What began as a leap of faith with Mac’s wines appears to be paying off quickly. His wines are well received (in 2008 Jamie Goode described him as “genius winemaker” on his Wineanorak blog). Mac has worked for the past three years as a consultant to some growers in the Carnuntum region. His Europhile approach to wine making: early harvesting, natural acidity, his search for cool sites, and a relative absence of new oak mean his wines sit very comfortably on our list. These are not wines which leap out of the glass and assault and exhaust the senses. They are cool, restrained wines, with a clear European influence, and each has a strong personality. He has proved himself very quickly as a brilliant winemaker. The challenge for him over the next few years will be to ensure his grape suppliers can provide him with the quality of fruit which his confident wine-making skills obviously deserve.
