Tasting Notesp>The School House block in Woori Yallock was planted in 1995 and has been leased by Mac Forbes Wines since 2012. Woori Yallock is located in the cooler Upper Yarra Valley. The soil type of this vineyard is a grey loamy clay overlying siltstone. At an altitude of 100-145m and with a south-west facing aspect the vines are protected from hot northerly winds. Woori Yallock produces stunning fruit in both hot and cooler years. It is everything we hope for in a site ‚– it displays its own individual personality. - Winery Note
It's a funny time to be making wine in Australia. For many, technological advancements no longer define our wines, which bring us back to the age old question ‚– what makes our patch of dirt unique?
And this is our journey. We are committed to seeking out sites that we deem to be strong and unusual. Often these vineyards were unloved when discovered, however through listening to and learning from the sites themselves, we have been able to bring back the health of the vineyards and share their character through the wines we are now making.
We are surprised that we have found sites with such clarity and beauty. And as a result, this very small and slow project is teaching us a lot about our land and our place within it.
