We love everything about this 2018 Chardonnay.
About The Wine
A formidable wine here from a classic producer. The Farrs sum up this stunning wine best themselves:
"The GC Chardonnay (GC – Gary Charles) is attributed to all the knowledge we have been able to extract from Gary to create a close planted / high density planting of chardonnay on an exposed cote... It's a complete chardonnay."
It's a powerful Chardonnay that makes you sit back and take notice. Full of fruit and body and personality.
A brilliant wine and a rare gem, perfect either for the cellar and/or a special occasion.
About By Farr / Farr Rising
Gary Farr is one of the most iconic winemakers in the country.
He was responsible for taking Bannockburn Vineyards in Geelong to the startling heights it reached as one of the benchmark producers of Burgundian varieties in the country. His own label, By Farr, is considered by many as Australia's leading producer of those same varieties.
The Farr vineyards are based in the Moorabool Valley in Geelong, with a wide array of ancient soils resulting in small yields of incredibly intensely flavoured Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Shiraz and Viognier.
With Gary's son Nick now pulling the winemaking reigns alongside his father, this is a project set to dominate Geelong wine for years to come.
