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..

A distinctive, cool climate effort from Australia's most precious Terra rosa soils, Shiraz has long thrived in Coonawarra and comprises the oldest vines on the Rymill property. Following the crush, fruit is inoculated and vinified in twenty tonnes capacity rotary fermenters, which periodically mix the fruit and keep the skins moist, maintaining ferments between 20C and 25C. A select culture of natural yeast is employed, which retains attractive berry aromas while dominating any wild yeasts which might impart disagreeable flavours. The finished wine is matured up to two years in a selection of new and seasoned French and American oak barrels.
Dark cherry red with purple hues. Rich, intense nose with lashings of black fruit, dark chocolates and white pepper. Red fruit flavours of plum and strawberry come through on the lifted palate, balanced and smooth. Integrated oak with lovely savoury notes, sweet berry fruit, appealing cinnamon spice and dusty cocoa characters, lingering on a beautiful long lasting finish.
