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 Huon Hooke
Deep, bright red/purple hue. Spicy, dark cherry pinot aroma, fresh and bright and clean, with an undercurrent of stemmy whole-bunch, but it’s not the dominant factor. Lovely intense dark cherry flavours, fresh and bright and alive. Long carry and fine texture. Great power, purity and character. Loads of potential for the future.
