By Farr Cote Vineyard 'GC' Geelong Chardonnay 2016

Great fruit expression that is well integrated with French oak. The palate is fine but firm, with great acidity, texture and length. This wine is rich in flavour, yet very refined.

About By Farr

By Farr
The Farr estate is located in the Moorabool Valley between Geelong and Ballarat, 100km southwest of Melbourne. The first grapes in this area were planted by Swiss settlers in the 1800’s, with the rich volcanic soil & continental climate creating a premium fruit with a flavour, bouquet & colour that’s exclusive to the Farr vineyard. Gary and Robyn Farr purchased the original property in 1994 and the second section in 1998. The second section hadn’t been used in over 4 decades and was full of dense boxthorn & 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 these, 36 acres are under vine while the rest is kept as grazing and cropping for cattle and horses. With a mixture of different clones the grape varieties grown here are Viognier, Chardonnay, Pinot noir, Gamay and shiraz - having received critical acclaim both in Australia and overseas.
