The reputation of this legendary Bannockburn producer continues to grow, with Nick Farr taking out Gourmet Traveller Wine Magazine's 2020 'Winemaker of the Year' award - 20 years after his father Garry earnt it.
This 20202 By Farr Shiraz is another complex and flavoursome red wine produced from grapes from the original By Farr vineyard, planted in 1994. It lies on a north-facing slope, and the red volcanic soil has a base of limestone with deep-set sandstone.
"All fruit is hand-picked from the VSP trellising, with about 15% left as whole bunches in the fermentation. Most years we co-ferment between 2 and 4% Viognier with the Shiraz, the date determining whether or not the former is co-fermented and bleed back. It is a natural fermentation, with the fruit remaining in the tank for 19 days before pressing. Shiraz sees 18 months in French oak, about 20% being new, and is bottled under vacuum"- Nick Farr
"Plum and ripe cherries, then a bag of spice and pepper. The palate is soft and slinky, a velvet-like texture holding together a summer pudding aroma palette. Wonderfully savoury and aromatic at the same time. While Pinot Noir takes the By Farr limelight, you would do yourself a great disservice overlooking this as some of the very best Shiraz grown in Australia - and, as such, terrifically undervalued"- Ben Knight.
