Mac Forbes Yarra Valley Pinot Noir 2018Mac Forbes
ORIGIN: Yarra Valley, Victoria, Australia
There are subtle notes of Morello cherries, raspberries, meat, flowers and white pepper in this wine, which lead into a beautifully structured and complex palate. Herbal, savory, earthy and tangy all at once, the flavors are intertwined with superfine tannins and a long, mineral finish. An understated, elegant Pinot with fine ripe red fruit well balanced with freshness and hints of spicy oak. Pairs well with chicken.
Mac Forbes’s pinot noirs – not to mention his gorgeous rieslings – are the epitome of elegant freshness, with this equivalent of a Burgundy village all about purity and clarity of red fruit and subtle savouriness.
