Mac Forbes philosophy towards pinot is to look after the detail, keep it simple and respect the fruit. The onus is on fruit quality and balance and not on winemaking solutions or corrections. For them winemaking is an extension of the vineyard where they aim to capture the fruit expression and carry this through to bottle. They pick when the fruit is ripe but still crunchy to taste. The Yarra Valley Pinot is a blend of Mac Forbes declassified barrels from their grower vineyards and the Mac Forbes single vineyard sites. 

The fruit was hand picked, 5% whole bunches, fermented in concrete and open top stainless. Spent on average 18 days on skins. Matured for 9 months in concrete and small and large format oak.

The resulting wine is medium to light body with a medium to high acidity, fine grippy tannin. Tart blackberry, sour red cherry, dried rose, cranberry red plum grantive top pallet freshness, slatey, good length.

Enjoy young but will be rewarded with increased complexity from time in a cellar.
