About This Wine
Nick Farr - Gourmet Traveller Winemaker of the Year 2020
The fruit is hand-picked then whole bunch-pressed in the winery. All the solids are
collected and chilled before being put to barrel (about 50% new French oak). A natural
fermentation will occur at cool temperatures over the next one to two months, and
then a small amount of stirring helps to start malolactic fermentation. The wine is then
racked, fined and lightly filtered before bottling 11 months after picking.
A wine with great fruit presence and varietal character at the front of the palate, the
power of this site then takes over and it finishes with a very assertive line of
acidity. As our greatest expression of Chardonnay, this wine has very quickly
commanded a strong following around the world. – Nick Farr
Named after living By Farr patriarch Gary Charles (GC) Farr, this wine is the epitome
of tension and definition. Coming from the Côte Vineyard close to the winery, the GC
is, so far, the apogee of the Chardonnay craft at By Farr. It’s wholly unAustralian in its
fruit expression, in that it’s fully ripe but skilfully avoids overt sweetness of fruit.
Stones, biscuit, spice, nuts, nougat, freshness and depth; the By Farr GC Chardonnay
is fine-boned with nervy acidity, endlessly complex and layered. – The Farr family
