Mac Forbes Woori Yallock Pinot Noir 2013

Yarra Valley, Victoria, AustraliaMac Forbes is one of Yarra Valley's great winemakers and his winery is breeding ground for young, driven talent. His natural-bent, off-hands and innovative approach yields ethereal, exciting and alive wines, like this pinot noir, from a cooler, south facing site in the upper Yarra. Gentle aromatic black currant, black cherry, subtle clay weight to the nose. The finessed, elegant and precise palate carries tobacco, black florals and black cherry seamlessly across finely grained tannins. A gentle juiciness surrounds the savoury edged, stony structure, finishing long and gravelly spiced. Finessed and harmonious. Drink now (mushrooms, truffles, roast duck) or be rewarded with 5+ years wait. Tasted: 05 February 2015Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: AB 78.00 Producer: Mac ForbesDistributors: Sur Lie
