Mac Forbes Woori Yallock Pinot Noir 2019

Yarra Valley, Victoria, AustraliaThis year marked the new Villages label from Mac Forbes, highlighting distinctly regional Pinot Noirs and Chardonnays in the Yarra. Woori Yallock is a hilly area based on red volcanic and grey loams, tucked behind the Waramate Hills. This year's Worri Yallock received 10% whole bunches and 14 days on skins over a native ferment, prior to 10 months in older oak. This was bottled unfined and unfiltered. Dark and fragrant plum, black cherry, dusky violets, tobacco floods the stony structure. The palate, though silken, is textured with a fine stony dust, rasping at the sides with finely grippy tannins to a lingering crushed floral finish. Drinking smartly now, and will continue with cellaring.Tasted: 22 December 2020Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 65.00 private wine shops Producer: Mac ForbesDistributors: Sur Lie
