The Mac Forbes Yarra Junction Pinot Noir 2017 is produced on their coolest site located in the far eastern Yarra Valley, just next to Wesburn. Situated on gravelly soils, this north eastern site receives cooling influences off the surrounding mountains and is protected from the afternoon sun. Yarra Junction will appeal to those who prefer a more immediately accessible style. It offers femininity and fragility almost within the context of a classic European Pinot.
2017 started slowly and took a more leisurely stroll through to harvest in March. Punctuated with regular rainfall and a moderate warmth, 2017 was a gorgeous season with near perfect conditions for ripening fruit. Low sugars and higher acids dancing with glorious fruit weight define 2017.
