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»

Tar Roses Heathcote Sangiovese CONFIRM VINTAGE

Sangiovese Heathcote Victoria
Sangiovese is a thin skinned grape, known for its savouryness and earthy characters as opposed to ripe berry fruit flavours. It shows an attractive red colour and can be characterised by high levels of tannin supported by ripe acidity. Sangiovese vines are well suited to soils with good drainage and abundant sunshine, both of which are found aplenty at Heathcote. The red wine of choice to accompany veal, prosciutto and sage or piquant chorizo recipes.
Available by the dozen
Case of 12
$263.00
Sangiovese is harvested into 2½ tonnes steel bins, crushed into static fermenters and pumped over twice daily for twenty minutes each time. Temperature and acid levels are monitored constantly and adjusted as necessary, upon completion, batches are treated to an air bag press and racked off gross lees, followed by transfer to barrel for malolactic and a year's maturation in a selection of seasoned French oak barriques, topped up each month, as the angels take their share.
Ruby red colour. Earth and clay nose with mulberries, cooked rhubarb and licorice. Damp earthy aromas with mocha and chocolate over assertive tannins, good fruit sweetness and pleasant acidity. A lingering finish expressing savouryness over persistent, mouthfilling powdery tannins. Will match goats cheese or baked parmesan and onion flan.
