    Description

    A version of this wine that perhaps shows more elegance than in the previous year.  Vibrant red fruits and spice, a lightness of palate, but richness of flavour.  The Top Block vineyard in Bannockburn that is home to this wine, offers softness and polished fruit expression, and lovely acid holding everything in place.  It’s aromatic, utterly pleasing and one of the more intriguing Farr Rising Pinot’s to date.

    Vintage 2023 – by Farr


    After three solid years of rain the team had hoped for some different growing conditions. Unfortunately not, a cool and wet Spring in 2022 meant that there was severe disease pressure and constant canopy management required up until Christmas. Because of the two previous growing seasons the team was well aware of what was required and did an amazing job once again. Crop levels certainly seemed below average because of the cool and windy conditions, particularly in the chardonnay sites.
    With frequent rain events throughout January and early February the ripen period was making little progress until we finally saw extended days into weeks of dryer and warmer weather. The welcome relief started to show us signs of delicate, super fine flavours, driven by high acidities.
    Our first day of picking was set for the 16 th March, we decided to hedge our bets and pick a little Chardonnay from the Copper block and a couple of tons of Pinot from the Windmill block. With acidity still quite high and looking for balance of flavours we decided to not pick again until the 20 th March. We harvested our last fruit in Bannockburn on the 6 th April, and Irrewarra fruit on the 14th April.

    All in all we are excited about the fruit that we grew and the wines they are becoming yet it is the smallest vintage since 2002.

    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.
