By Farr Geelong Victoria Chardonnay 2022


From the same site as the Sangreal pinot noir. Planted in 1994 on red soil over limestone. The limestone of this site is not exposed on the surface as at other sites. The limestone starts 20 to 30cm below the surface, to the depths of the root zone of the vines. It is a very exposed north-facing slope. 30% new french oak

Gary Farr first attempted to contact Burgundy growers in 1983. He sent off over 100 letters with only 1 response... Jacques Seysses (perhaps because Jacques himself was an outsider, not part of the historical suspicion, perhaps).
Gary had been a grape grower and wine maker for Bannockburn Wines, with a thirst for the unique qualities of Cote dโ€™Or pinot noir. He wondered continuously how to produce the same finesse, assuming it was due to the underlying limestone, some of which could be found locally. Thus began a multi-year course in Burgundian cellars, every year at Domaine Dujac and others. He soon developed many friendships with the then-young generation (all-stars now in their mature years!) including Dominique Lafon, for a look at Chardonnay, who was also on his experimental path.
