Introducing Team Forbes:
1 May 2014
Mac gets the chicks again. This year it’s the gorgeous girls from Bellota, Meg and Jacqueline. After a full morning picking shiraz in the Thousand Candles vineyard, the girls were destemming by hand, before preparing for a late afternoon session of foot stomping. Mac Forbes, who was raised in the Yarra Valley, is renowned for wines that have a sense of place, and which reflect the subtle differences of the myriad of different vineyards in the region. There is no doubt that his team will make a very different style of wine from Team Mayer. Mac had a challenging time with his team last year, as they chose to make a sparkling pink wine with very limited equipment. Hopefully it will be an easier run this year for Team Forbes!
