Lying 100km southwest of Melbourne, between Geelong and Ballarat, lies the Moorabool Valley; home to rich volcanic soils, ideal continental climates, and to some seriously old vines. As a result, By Farr's premium fruit and inimitable depth of flavour in the finished wines makes their bottlings amongst the most revered and unique among Australia's top producers. Head winemakers Nick and Gary Farr (with Nick currently holding 2020's Gourmet Traveller Winemaker of the Year award and the estate now named by Huon Hooke's The Real Review as Number 1 Australian Winery!) both maintain their own profound understanding of their region's characteristics and style, leading to a consistently fantastic yearly catalogue of wines that attract acclaim from critics and consumers alike, and become fast-sellers in our store. Run, don't walk!

2021 By Farr Viognier - $92 per bottle ; $105 RRP  (SOLD OUT)

Limited Quantities

"Light, bright yellow hue leads into a fresh and bright aroma of spice and honey nuances allied with subtle traces of nuttiness, stone-fruits and tropical flowers. The palate is intense and focused, richness without broadness, soft textured but not blousy. Extra-long and vibrant aftertaste, refreshingly dry and appetising. A benchmark viognier." - 96 Points, Huon Hooke, The Real Review

2021 By Farr Chardonnay - $92 per bottle ; $105 RRP  (SOLD OUT)

"Reserved, quiet bouquet of stone fruits including white peach and pear, a hint of fresh-baked bread, the palate delicate and restrained, soft and round, with a clean, dry finish enhanced by a trace of grip. There's good intensity and the wine has a seamless balance. It should build richness and complexity with a little more time." - 95 Points, Huon Hooke, The Real Review

2020 By Farr Farrside Pinot Noir - $92 per bottle ; $105 RRP (SOLD OUT)

Great deep colour, and sweet spice aromas, with a much firmer palate than we see in the Sangreal. These wines have a perfect fade from fruit to structure, a velvet like character, really complex texture. It’s darker, firmer edged and more upright. You can taste a fresher fruit note, black cherries and plums and a sense of fine oak. Really impressive.

2020 By Farr Shiraz - $92 per bottle ; $105 RRP

Think plum and ripe cherries and then a bag of spice and pepper. The palate is soft and slinky, a velvet like texture holding together a summer pudding like aroma palette. Wonderfully savoury and aromatic at the same time. Whilst Pinot Noir takes the limelight at By Farr, you would do yourself a great disservice to not think this is some of the very best Shiraz being made in Australia, and as such, terrifically undervalued.

2020 By Farr Sangreal Pinot Noir - $106 per bottle ; $125 RRP  (SOLD OUT)

Love the paucity of colour. This wine has richness, and classic Sangreal perfume and spice. Savoury in the sweet and sour way, lightness, and generosity in equal measure. Cinnamon, cloves, anise, and sour cherries. That classic stem note, dill, and fresh currants. There is a creaminess and softness that only time in barrel brings. A complex and complete wine.
