Mac Forbes RS19 Riesling 2017 - Strathbogie Ranges, Victoria


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. He also works with a variety of other grapes including Chardonnay, Riesling and Cabernet Sauvignon. 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 over a decade ago. He works across a number of sites and loves to make ‘project’ type wine whenever he can.

M+Q Notes

Riesling sourced from granite soils in Strathbogies Ranges which creates mineral driven wines. This semi-dry wine’s residual sugar balances out the stony flavours and generous acidity. Bright citrus flavours of lemon and lime and a touch of white peach. No additions were added to this wine except a bit of SO2 at bottling.

Food Suggestion

Vietnamese baked snapper
