Mac Forbes Yarra Junction Village Pinot Noir 2022


Dark fruits and rounder in shape than the other village wines. Blackberry, cassis, blueberry, cherry and Christmas spice. The sweet fruit is counterbalanced by savoury notes of clove, cured meats and bay leaf. Terrific depth and energy, remarkable how such an effortless drinking wine can have so much tension, personality and structure. Waters Wine Co 


As with all Mac Forbes’ 2022 Village pinots, this had between 10-20% whole bunches and three to four weeks on skins before being pressed to seasoned oak for 11 months. A very bright crimson purple. Opens with scents of spiced raspberries, pomegranate, rose petals and mountain herbs. A lot is going on here! Very bright on the finely tuned, pure fruited, structured and well-balanced palate, too. I like this a lot now, but all the components are here for this to age effortlessly over the next six to eight years, if not more. 96 Points, Halliday Wine Companion


East facing within a smaller valley that runs from Yarra Junction to Poweltown in the south, featuring grey loam soils with underlying silt. Cooler winds roll off the Yarra River, with mountains directly to the north and south-west providing protection from hot afternoon sun in summer. Typically later ripening, thicker skins and higher acids are reflected in elegant structure with clean lines and powerful drive.


Moody morello cherry and a little resinous funk open up to floral aromatics and an edge of orange rind. Vibrant red fruits on the front palate flow into a savoury core, with mealy structure drawing the finish down a lovely long line. Producer’s notes
