By Farr, Farrside Pinot Noir 2016


Out of Stock


By Farr has shot to the top echelon of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay growers in Australia since its first vintage in 1994. Thoughtfully planted and meticulously tended, By Farr is located in the Moorabool Valley of Bannockburn, an area between Geelong and Ballarat, 100km southwest of Melbourne. The vineyards are based on ancient river deposits within the Moorabool Valley. Thousands of years later, we are reaping the rewards of these complex and mineral-rich soils, which lend their unique characteristics to these vineyards. 
Gary Farr founded the winery. His experience as a winemaker was shaped by time spent at Domain Dujac in Burgundy, Cristom in Oregon and Calera in California. He continues to make pilgrimages to Domain Dujac, as he has done for the past two decades, continuing to learn more whilst sharing his own expertise about the craft of growing and making wine that is a true expression of site. 
Nick Farr currently steers the ship and readily acknowledges the influence of his father in his winemaking and viticultural practices. While he was growing up Nick worked alongside his father on the family estate before a stint at Rosemount in the Hunter Valley in the late 90s. This was followed by more vintages with Gary in the Bannockburn area, where Nick commenced his label Farr Rising. Nick’s international experience includes Cristom in Oregon, Au Bon Climate in California and Domaine Dujac in Burgundy.
