    “Absolutely delicious! Youthful and bright in the glass. Beautiful, lifted aromas of blueberry, spice, cola, sap, nutmeg oak and dried flowers. Mid-weight, bright and lively on the palate, full of blue fruits, spice, bramble and briar. There’s real purity and poise and the tannins and acidity are en pointe." - Aaron Brasher, The Real Review 2023

    Shiraz fruit comes from the original By Farr vineyard, planted in 1994. It lies on a north-facing slope, and the red volcanic soil has a base of limestone with deep-set sandstone. All fruit is hand-picked from the VSP trellising, with 20 per cent left as whole bunches in the fermentation. Most years we co-ferment between 2 and 4 per cent viognier with the shiraz, the date determining whether or not the former is co-fermented and bled back. It is a natural fermentation, with the fruit remaining in the tank for 19 days before pressing. Shiraz sees 18 months in French oak, 20 per cent being new, and is bottled under vacuum.

    What The Critics Say
    "Deep, bright red with a good rim of purple leads into a super-aromatic peppery, vegetal and spicy bouquet. There is an earthiness on the mid-palate and refreshing but not overt acidity, the weight is medium to full bodied and the tannins subtly drying and savoury, in perfect balance with the weight and fruit intensity. A stylish and beautiful cool-grown shiraz in what could be termed a 'syrah' style. Drink: Now-2041"

    By Farr

    The Real Review Winery of the Year 2022, Wine by Farr, is the pre-eminent winery in the Geelong region, its vineyards and winery located at Bannockburn in the Moorabool Valley just outside Geelong city. Nick Farr was Gourmet Traveller Wine magazine’s Winemaker of the Year in 2020, but he is always quick to emphasise that By Farr is a family affair and the wines are a team effort. Indeed, Gary Farr won the same award back in 2001. It’s the only two-generation winning combination. But the Farrs shrink from the idea that the winemaker is some kind of hero: it’s the grape and the land that are important. The Farrs only make wine from their own grapes and are true vignerons in the French sense – they grow the grapes, make the wine, mature and bottle it. Everything is done on-site.
