The Farr's are Victorian winemaking royalty. Between father Gary and son Nick, they have produced some of the country's greatest Burgundian-styled wines over the past couple of decades. Nick's solo project, Farr Rising is his chance to challenge his old man's winemaking philosophies. The wines are consistently stellar. There's just something in the Farr's blood. The Gamay was grafted onto existing Cabernet rootstock not long after Nick and wife Cassie purchased their own block of land in 1998. The wine has developed something of a cult following, as many continue to fall under the beguiling spell of Gamay. The wealth of knowledge and creativity behind this wine is astonishing when you consider the price. If you a looking for top examples of this much-loved variety, this is one of country's finest iterations.

What it Tastes Like

"The nose of the gamay, so far, is fruitful at first before opening up to reveal berry flavours with earthy and gamey notes. The palate is full of red berry fruits with savoury undertones. The structure is long, earthy and lingering. With vibrant acidy and defined tannins, this wine is full of flavour." - Nick Farr (Winemaker)
