A bit of sustained warmth during the 2019 growing season has resulted in wines across the Yarra with a bit of added softness and roundness to the mid-palate for both whites and reds. This seems to be the case here, yet we must stress that this is not necessarily a bad thing. Mac always picks his fruit earlier than most in an effort to retain as much natural acidity as possible. So in this release, the acid is still there but the fruit is a bit fleshier and riper with a touch more golden fruit (ripe peach as opposed to white peach) and a touch more width across the palate. It’s a very minor change in style brought about entirely by the season. And that is a great thing, when wines reflect the season in which they are grown. - Ches Cook, FWC.
