“Here 40-50% of the grapes are destemmed, the remainder left as whole bunches, and this increases complexity with its foresty, gamey (in the good sense), spicy overlay to the black cherry and plum fruit. The outstanding feature of the wine is its weight, suspended by some magic just above the palate – you sense it rather than taste it” James Halliday Wine Companion 2019

 "The 2016 vintage scene was dominated by fluctuating temperatures and conditions. An unseasonably warm May and June followed by a very cool and wet July/August had us on edge. What we thought was going to be a very quick and abrupt vintage starting on the 18th Feb, didn’t finish until we picked the last of Farrside Pinot on the 31st of March. It is the second year in a row that the weather has been very favourable during the end of February, helping to slowly ripen the fruit and hopefully develop more structure and fine tannins.  The wines from this vintage seem extremely fine and mineral driven. As more wines are released from this vintage you will see the approachability and elegance of a cool vintage for the Farr’s." Farr
