Chardonnay Geelong Victoria
An extremely limited release every year, crafted from grapes picked off the same property which makes the illustrious Sangreal Pinot Noir, a highly mineral site for the growing of Chardonnay in the style of Chablis. By Farr is a profound expression of uniqueness in terroir. A Victorian flagship Chardonnay, exhibiting exquisite balance between fruit freshness and power, texture and minerality. A regimen of lees stirring and full malolactic, further contribute to the understated richness of an immensely engaging white wine.
Gary Farr established Chardonnay vines on his house block at Bannockburn in 1994. The quality of fruit, picked off a mix of Dijon clones and Penfolds 58, grown to a northerly slope of rich, friable red loam over limestone soils, clearly shows through in the finished wine. Grapes are all hand picked, inspected for health and whole bunch pressed, solids are collected and chilled before filling to a mix of seasoned and new French oak barrels. A naturally occuring wild fermentation, initiated by ambient wild yeasts, at cooler temperatures is followed by a course of lees stirring and the completion of malolactic. Barrels are racked, fined and lightly filtered for botling, normally at eleven months after vintage.
Light straw green hues. Varietal stonefruit and melon nose, complexed by nutty oak and spice notes. Generously layered palate showing tinned peaches and nectarine, preserved lemon and creamy autolysis. A wine of power and length, framed by toasty, richly textural yet mineral and refined, a seemingly endless finish.
