Mac Forbes Chardonnay 2018

Yarra Valley, Victoria, AustraliaThis is Mac Forbes Yarra Valley chardy overview, with fruit coming from Healesville, Hoddles Creek and Woori Yallock vineyards. It's wondrous to realize this is his 'entry-level' chardonnay, and there are single vineyard wines to discover beyond this textural, bright example. Flintly notes reflects the reductive swings of this wine, while the lemon-lined, white asparagus, green apple, fluffy lees hint to the native ferment and ten months in old oak on lees and bottling without fining. One of the more serious entry-level wines you'll find, drinking beautifully now when allowed to open and reveal in the glass.Tasted: 23 May 2019Tasted by: Treve RingPrices:
