92pointsMac Forbes 2017 Pinot Noir (Yarra Valley)

Editors' Choice

Mac Forbes's Pinot, like many of his wines, walks a line between highly gluggable and serious food wine. Gentle, downright pretty aromas of rhubarb, watermelon and cherry find more complexity thanks to waves of white pepper and savory spices. Faint currents of something mineral and smoky wash ashore. Lightweight, it shimmers with crystalline fruit and is buoyed by gentle but slightly austere tannins. Then, another wave of red fruit laps on the finish. The juxtaposition between sensations works beautifully. Christina Pickard
