Mac Forbes is one of Australia’s most thoughtful winemakers, a man who lives and breathes his native Yarra Valley. I caught up with him during vintage to chat about his formative time in Europe, his love of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Riesling, his respect for Aboriginal culture, his relationship with old vines and why winemaking is about more than ticking boxes.
To read more about Mac have a look at his website. You can also follow him on Instagram @mac_forbes_wines.
Don’t forget, Cork Talk is now available on Spotify. You can listen to this week’s episode, plus my back catalogue of interviews with some of the world’s most extraordinary wine figures.
