By Farr Viognier 2019 - Geelong
Bottle size: 750ml
Available online only
Minimum buy quantity no less than 6 bottles.
A lovely perfumed, yet subtle expression of viognier. Fresh peach and apricot flavours as a young wine, which we believe will intensify over time. The palate is restrained, luscious and shows a ginger-flavoured freshness with underlying power and lingering aftertaste. This wine benefits beautifully from 12 months of bottle ageing, as the acid softens.
Viognier can be a surprisingly good match with food despite its low natural acidity, you just have to be a little more creative. A good rule of thumb is to avoid light and delicate dishes and also ones with sharp or bitter flavours. A classic match is lobster or fresh scallops, but if you’re financially challenged like us then creamy pasta or chicken dishes are also ideal. A favourite match is with South Asian cuisines like Indian or Thai, whose semi sweet and full flavours make great non-traditional matches for Viognier.
The By Farr vineyards have plantings of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Shiraz and Viognier (all varieties are a mixture of clones and rootstocks). The aspect of the vineyard is north/northeast and undulating. The soil is volcanic loam over limestone and in some sites the limestone dominates the loam. They are well drained and of low fertility. They compare well with the best sites for pinot noir and chardonnay anywhere in the world.
Delivery is currently free of charge for both straight and mixed cases Australia Wide. (*excludes remote postcodes in WA and NT) (*excludes fundraising orders)
In most instances, a case is 12 bottles, including all mixed cases. Please note that the case quantity can vary between 3-12 bottles, depending on individual wine value and packaging configuration.
The number of bottles that define a straight case is marked in the product pricing page (i.e. "as part of any 6", "single bottle" and "3 or 6 or 12 bottle case").
Where all or part of the order is less than a case (as defined in the product pricing options, or 12 bottles if mixed) shipping will be charged as per your postcode at our cost price, this charge amount will be visible before your order confirmation and payment.
For example, a mixed bottle order of 18 bottles will include a freight charge for the second mixed case of only 6 bottles. A mixed 24 bottle order would be totally freight free.
Our intention is to offer free shipping to as many wine lovers as possible, however, given the geographically vast size of Australia, it is not possible for us to offer free shipping to 100% of postcodes.
