2018 By Farr Shiraz
"This is a dry red wine of terrific intensity, structure and complexity."
Campbell Mattinson (The Wine Front)
The Shiraz By Farr is a Shiraz made like a Pinot Noir.
This is from vines planted in 1994 as part of Gary Farr's original plantings. In most vintages, a small amount of Viognier is either co-fermented or back blended to enhance fragrance and texture. It's a soft, seductive wine that really turns it on.
The 2018 vintage conditions suited the Farr Shiraz vines very well. Nick Farr believes this to be the family's most 'Rhone-like' Shiraz to date.
Silky, slippery and spicy, this is a wonderful expression of Shiraz from a great Australian vineyard.Read more about 2018 By Farr Shiraz
2016 COS Cerasuolo di Vittoria
Here's a wine that perfectly represents the energy and drive the COS wines have become known for.
It takes two of Sicily's hero red varieties: Frappato & Nero d'Avola and takes them into fresh and frisky territory.
The fruit is picked with freshness and acidity as the focal point as opposed to the richer, black-fruited Nero etc that Sicily is well known for. This is all red fruit, spice and florals with a real sense of tension and minerality underlying the whole picture.
It's a terrific wine. Flighty, nervy and persistant. Dive in.Read more about 2016 COS Cerasuolo di Vittoria
2018 Dr. Edge Eola-Amity Hills Pinot Noir
The Dr. Edge Oregon Pinot Noir project has been a long time in the making for Peter Dredge.
The idea was to replicate the same exploration of Pinot Noir that he has undertaken in Tasmania, but through the lens of the Willamette Valley in Oregon, USA.
There are three distinct expressions of the Pinot Noir grape here. The Dukes Family Vineyard in Amity, previously managed by friend Kevin Healy, supplies the fruit for the Eola-Amity Hills Pinot Noir. It's a cooler site for the region, in the south of Willamette Valley.
This is the finer, more focused wine of the three. It's red-fruited, floral, nervy and has the texture of fine bone china. It's stunning.Read more about 2018 Dr. Edge Eola-Amity Hills Pinot Noir
