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.

Vintaged in excruciatingly limited lots, there are fully two styles of Irrewarra on offer, a grapefruit and oyster shell Chardonnay, a Pinot.. It's irrewarra by farr»
Old Richmond Gaol was one of Diemen Land's first prisons, built by the convicts themselves, of good old fashioned granite blocks, laboriously hauled in wooden hand carts and quarried from the ominously monikered Butchers Hill.

Paxton focus on soil health, bio-diversity and nonchemical weed control. Bee hives on the property contribute to diversity, aid pollination and maximise seed production of the inter-row pastures. Natural composts enrich the soils and are the basis for healthy vine growth. Each vineyard parcel is separately handled, destemmed and vinified in a mix of open and static fermenters, plunged and pumped over each twice daily over the course of a fortnight for optimal extraction of colour, flavour and tannin. Batches are pressed into a selection of seasoned and new French and American oak barriques for completion of ferments and a year's maturation.
Deep mulberry, purple hues. Powerful, lifted ripe berry fruit, vanilla and chocolate, French cocoa and American vanilla oak notes. Rich, juicy fruit, spiced berries and currant, dark chocolates and licorice, flavoursome, textural mouthfeel and a lingering savoury back palate. Mouthfilling, yet lingering, elegant flavours, drinking very well immediately upon release.
