Mac Forbes is undeniably one of the Yarra Valley’s leading producers. A Yarra boy, born & bred, Mac’s work has been followed closely since his high profile & first role as winemaker at the iconic Mount May.

There is a single question at the core of Mac’s work today: “How do you get a vivid palate that reflects the soil?” By harvesting fruit on the cusp of ripeness and processing with minimal intervention, over many vintages the characters of each vineyard become clear in the wines: for example, the red soils of Hoddles Creek inform the wines with roundness and sweetness and the grey silt stone of Woori Yallock gives finer structure and a sense of elegance. While Chardonnay & Pinot Noir occupy.
