Gary Farr is one of the most iconic winemakers in the country. He was responsible for taking Bannockburn Vineyards in Geelong to the startling heights it reached; one of the benchmark producers of Burgundian varieties in the country. His own label, By Farr, is considered to be Australia’s leading producer of those same varieties. The Farr vineyards are based in the Moorabool Valley in Geelong, with a wide array of ancient soils resulting in small yields of incredibly intensely flavoured Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Shiraz and Viognier. With Gary’s son Nick now pulling the winemaking reigns alongside his father, this is a project set to dominate Geelong wine for years to come.

Tasting Notes

97 Points Nick Stock

The 2010 edition of this wine has the same resonant, deep nose of dark cherries and plum fruits, some spice and a convincing array of complexity that’s been carefully built into the mix. The palate’s very dense and very long, great depth, beautiful freshness as it builds, pure red and dark cherry flavour, oak adds weight but serves rather than dominates. Experience shines through here once again.
