Tasting Notes:

Medium ruby-purple in color, the 2010 Tout Pres Pinot Noir gives notes of black cherries, pomegranate, cloves, anise and cinnamon stick with touches of Mediterranean herbs, violets and chocolate. Medium-bodied, it is exquisitely structured with a medium level of very finely grain tannins, refreshing acidity, a great concentration of youthful, taut fruit, and a long, earthy, savory finish. Still very tight-knit and primary, it should drink best 2013 to 2018+.

description Producer information Professional reviews

The Farr estate is located in the Moorabool Valley between Geelong and Ballarat, 100km southwest of Melbourne. Grape growing in this region dates back more than 200 years, with Swiss settlers planting Victoria’s first vineyards here in the early 1800s. The rich volcanic soil and continental climate at our estate produces premium fruit with a flavour, bouquet and colour that is unique to our surrounding area. Gary and Robyn Farr purchased the original property in 1994 and the second section in 1998—this latter had been untouched for almost 40 years and consisted of dense boxthorn and noxious weeds. The final piece of the puzzle, which links the two blocks of land, was purchased by Nick and Cassie Farr in 2011, making a total of 130 acres—of which 36 acres are under vine and the remainder is maintained as grazing and cropping for cattle and horses. With a mixture of different clones and rootstocks, the grape varieties grown here are viognier, chardonnay, pinot noir, gamay and shiraz. Nick and Gary Farr stand side by side, but aren’t afraid to go head-to-head when their opinions differ. Each generation has developed a distinctive winemaking style based on his individual experience and taste, and their respective lines—By Farr by Gary, and Farr Rising by Nick—have received critical acclaim both in Australia and overseas.
