Gary and Nick Farr are father and son, they make wine together but aren't afraid to go head to head when their opinions differ. Nick grew up amongst some of the world's most sacred vineyards, he knows about the land and found a magnificent little site, barely east of Lake Colac. Irrewarra is the vigneron's shangri-la, prepared for viticulture by generations of grazing and eons of the sobering south sea breezes, which stimulate vines to yield meagre harvests of parched little grapes, sleek of tannin and rich in flavour. Vintaged in excruciatingly limited lots, there are fully two styles of Irrewarra on offer, a grapefruit and oyster shell Chardonnay, a Pinot Noir of pasture and of place, both finished to delight the senses and to excite the most inscrutable palates... It's irrewarra by farr»

Chenin Blanc Loire Valley France
Marc Brédif can count on the finest harvests in Vouvray, twenty acres of the best vineyards, a canon of salubrious south facing vines, planted to unique chalk and silica clay soils known as Aubius. Many have been supplying Brédif for generations and are the source of Loire Valley's most memorable vintages. The great vineyards of Tarbourneau, Clos Chavin and Mailet yield a superior quality Chenin Blanc. The pick of the crop is the eminent Les Vignes Blanches, one of the most celebrated vineyards in all Valley Loire.

Marc Brédif have long held access to the finest Chenin Blanc vineyards. Grapes are hand harvested in successive passes through the choicest blocks, off vines up to seventy years of age, planted to the vineyards of Vignes Blanches, Tabourneau and Mialet, growing on the first slope up the banks of River Loire, in the communes of Vouvray and Vernou sur Brenne. Only the ripest and healthiest grapes are considered for inclusion. Parcels are treated to a pneumatic press, the exclusively free run juices are treated to a day or two of cold soak followed by vinification in traditional fermentation vats. Upon completion, the wines are held on sedimentery yeast lees for eighteen months before bottling.
Beautiful bright straw green hue. Intense nose develops into ripe bouquets of loquat and white nectarine, gingerbread and floral, nutty fruit notes and pastoral charm. A soft palate exhibiting a balance of evolved fruit characters and lovely freshness, almonds, honey and tinned pear, before a clean acid finish on lingering notes of apple and orange blossoms. Match with fondue and elegantly presented white meat recipes.
