    The warmth and calm sun exposure towards the end of the 2023 vintage is highlighted in each of the wines that will be released from the 2023 vintage.  

    “I am going to say it, which I don’t find easy to do.  This could be the best Gamay I have made”, Nick Farr.  

    This is the tenth release of Farr Rising Gamay, and if ever asked about his approach to sites on the property, Nick will always say that it takes him 10 years to truly understand the variety that is planted on each soil type, and for the vines to truly express themselves through vine age and root depth.  Either that or he is simply a very slow learner!

    It is 10 years of not only understanding the site viticulturally, but the capabilities of the fruit and wine making processes in the winery.  There is not much Nick hasn’t tried stylistically and operationally, but for those that have been drinking previous vintages, the evolution has led to this wine.  Soft, gamey, spice, a density that holds in the mid palate until the acidity takes you to a deceptive and vibrant finish. 

    The gamay was grafted onto rooted cabernet vines, which were planted in 1999. The soil is black cracking clay soil, with a mixture of submerged volcanic pebbles and boulders at one end, and a more friable and slightly more vigorous chocolate-coloured soil at the other. The first fruit was picked during the 2014 vintage. The grapes are hand-picked and sorted in the vineyard, then placed in the tank as whole bunches. The tank is sealed and left for 10 days to ferment naturally and release carbonic fruit aromas. The fruit is foot stomped, pressed on days 11 and 12, and then placed in five-year-old barrels to finish the fermentation process. The wine is bottled eight months later.

    What The Critics Say
    Of the 2021 ”Wonderful wine. Incredibly expressive and then beautifully persistent. Green herb, spice and game characters running through bright red cherry. Animal notes, in a good way. Untamed and neat at the same time. I’ve enjoyed this over a meal a couple of times now and it has performed joyously each time.”

    ABOUT THIS BRAND

    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.
