We've been very lucky to have been allocated some of the highly sort-after By Farr wines before their official limited release on July 1st. We have secured some especially for our World Wine email subscribers and as each year comes, these disappear faster and faster as the winery is awarded more and more accolades.
Nick Farr and father Gary are known for not wasting words. You get more insight from a few plain-spoken sentences than from your average wine magazine subscription. There are various reasons for the economy of words. One is that the Farrs operate on such an elevated plane that much low-level stuff is immaterial. This family’s been puzzling out those “one percenters” – those onerous unseen tweaks that ultimately make the difference between good and great – for decades.
Now to the wine, which is available in limited quantities and ready for delivery July 1st.
As these are pre-release, there are no official reviews yet, but as we saw previous releases all get scores in the high 90 point range as well as plenty of national accolades they won't last long. The whites are from the excellent 2019 vintage and the 2018 reds are said to be some of the best ever from Geelong. So you may want to jump on them real quick!
