The story

Mac is often referred to as the Prince of Pinot, in the Yarra Valley, as he is a true craftsman of this often fickle, yet ultimately rewarding grape variety.

Mac has worked previously for Mount Mary Estate, then spent time working vineyards in France and Austria before returning to the Valley to establish his own label which was now 12 years ago. He works across a number of sites and loves to make ‘project’ type wine whenever he can.

M + Q note

 The fruit for the Westwood Pinot is grown in the Coldstream sub-region of the Yarra Valley, which is regarded as one of the Yarra’s blue chip subregions.

Light bodied Pinot with juicy red cherry fruit, earth and rose petal notes with silky layered tannins and a lightly spicy sappy finish.
