MAC FORBES YARRA VALLEY CHARDONNAY 2018
YARRA VALLEY, MELBOURNE
STONEFRUIT TIGHT SPRING
CLASSIC / 750ML
Acid forward Chardonnay comprised of declassified single vineyard barrels. A consistent Yarra Valley Chardonnay that delivers year in and year out.
From the Producer: The Yarra Valley label is the entry into our Chardonnay wines. ‘Yarra Valley’ is a blend of declassified barrels from our grower vineyards and the Mac Forbes single vineyard sites. They represent a snapshot from across the valley and our vineyards. Generally, they can be enjoyed young but cellaring will reward with increased complexity.
The 2020 season in the Yarra Valley will forever be remembered as a highly unusual and impossible to predict vintage. Significant weather events during flowering meant low yields, and erratic temperatures in December and January saw unprecedented ripening behaviour across many varieties. February rains were both welcome and anxiety-inducing, but ultimately the maturity and stability of the vines in our best parcels allowed fruit quality to shine through.
