Mac Forbes – 3/05/2013

2013 Strathbogie Riesling outlying rows
Really rich and ripe, bright but still crisp acids. Lovely depth of fruit.

2013 Riesling (better fruit)
More complex nose, bolder but tighter, more subdued and long.

2013 Entry Level Pinot
Bright varietal dark fruits, classic Yarra Valley. Tight bright and straight. Good depth and length for the quality.

Tight flinty finesse.

2013 Chardonnay Seville
Deep and haunting, hustle and flow.

2013 Lusatia Park Chard
Full bold restrained nose, denser ripeness.

2013 Woori Yallock Chardonnay
Bright citrus nose, wonderful minerality and elegance, great structure and length.

2013 Field Blend (Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Chenin Blanc, Sauvignon Blanc)
Bright and wild, energetic and fresh but structured and savoury.

2013 Pinot Noir Coldstream
Classic Yarra Valley pinot noir notes. Ripe fruit sweet core, bright light straight. Awesome black cherry concentrated.

2013 Pinot Noir Woori Yallock
Ethereal there but not there, floats and ebbs on the palate, depth and concentration yet elegance and finesse.

2013 Pinot Noir Woori Yallock Middle of Row
A little wilder and more savoury, more whole bunch stalk.

2013 Pinot Noir Woori Yallock Middle oak ferment 4 weeks skins
Much bolder denser texture and dry tannins.

2013 Wesburn Pinot Noir
Darker fruit, more intense but still very light tannins, intensity brute.

2013 Yarra Junction Pinot Noir

2013 Yarra Junction Pinot
Wonderfully bright fresh fruits. Intense but light structure.

2013 Syrah
Intense wild savoury full dark fruit with oodles of freshness.

2012 Hugh Cabernet merlot
Perfect placement.

Woori Yallock Pinot Noir 2010
Bright tight and fresh yet dark intense and savoury. Fresh full of fruit and life, yummy savoury spicy mealy edge, contained and linear yet explosive.

Woori Yallock Pinot Noir 2011
VERY light in colour, almost Bandol rosé/Beaujolais nouveau. Very shy retiring savoury nose. Tight light and a little sharp, delicate structure and subtle elegance, quite early in fact.

Woori Yallock Pinot Noir 2012
Quite closed for now and yet to express. Softer and more delicate with plenty of dark fruit notes. All the elements there.
