By Farr Geelong Tout Pres Pinot Noir 2016
The Farrside vineyard consists of black volcanic soil over limestone on a northeast-facing slope. The vine rows run east to west to shade the fruit from over exposure. The darker soils and cooler growing conditions give a more masculine and edgy wine. Roughly 50% of the fruit was destemmed and natural yeast is used. The wine is placed in 50% - 60% new barrels for 18 months before bottling.
Very floral, pretty and red-fruited - more than I think I expect from this wine, and certainly the foremost impression over bunchiness or oak. Rhubarb and spice (earthy and wood notes) provide nice shading. A flood of beautiful red fruit on entry - macerated cherry and forest berries; uplifting and juicy. Super tannins - fine-grained/suede as red fruit grips through a mouthwatering finish...thoroughly delicious and - for all that obvious pleasure - subtly detailed. NICK FARR
