A savoury expression of Shiraz from Geelong. Red fruited, white pepper and green herbs all enveloped in a balanced, medium bodied, and elegant framework. A style you should come to expect from the cooler reaches of Victoria. - Chris L
Gary and Robyn Farr purchased the original property in 1994 and the second section in 1998; this latter had been untouched for almost 40 years and consisted of dense boxthorn and noxious weeds. The final piece of the puzzle, which links the two blocks of land, was purchased by Nick and Cassie Farr in 2011, making a total of 130 acres; of which 36 acres are under vine and the remainder is maintained as grazing and cropping for cattle and horses. With a mixture of different clones and rootstocks, the grape varieties grown here are viognier, chardonnay, pinot noir, gamay and shiraz.
Nick and Gary Farr stand side by side, but aren't afraid to go head-to-head when their opinions differ. Each generation has developed a distinctive winemaking style based on his individual experience and taste, and their respective lines; By Farr by Gary, and Farr Rising by Nick; have received critical acclaim both in Australia and overseas.
