Mac Forbes Gruyere Pinot Noir 2008 Victoria Yarra Valley
The colour is pale cherry red.
A nose of perfumed red fruits with crushed herbs,
turned healthy earth, redskin candy, rhubarb
and spice. Background is fresh and lifted
from a subtle whole bunch influence.
The palate has fine sinewy tannin and velvet like texture.
Fine red fruits both fresh and slightly boiled with
raw and cooked spices complexing with earthy
undertones. Structure is fine and well knit.
Chewy tannins weave with supple lees providing
harmony. Crunchy acidity gives drive.
Finishes long, pure and even.
