Farr Rising Pinot Noir 2019 - Geelong
Bottle size: 750ml
Floral, rich, full nose with powerful berry fruits beginning to build. The palate has sweetness followed by mineral overtones, enhanced by toasty oak, fine tannins, great structure and a long and savoury finish completes this gem. The wine combines density and precision with an ageing potential of 5-8+ years. Full bore pinot noir.
I always get hints of rhubarb [or something like that] in Nick’s pinots - and a subtle meatiness which is quite compelling. Otherwise there’s herbal inflected sweet and sour gently sappy cherries and wild raspberry, oak adding support but far in the distance. Spot on acidity keeps the palate linear and upright. Lovely stuff!
Farr Rising wines are produced from both Estate grown fruit and purchased fruit. The single vineyard estate grown fruit for both the chardonnay and pinot noir were planted in 2002 on a mixture of black volcanic soil over limestone towards the bottom of the north facing slope and ironstone soil towards the top. The vine rows run north south to achieve maximum light and flavour.
The purchased fruit comes from pinot noir clones 114 and 115, Dijon clones on rootstock, a vineyard planted in 1980, solely to MV6 for pinot noir and I10V1 for chardonnay. The site is 10km down the Moorabool valley from the Winery Estate, on similar soils.
Also fruit is sourced from Merricks on the Mornington Peninsula for the Farr Rising Mornington Pinot Noir, which has now reached 10 years of product1ion. Merricks is a very different site to Bannockburn, it has twice the rainfall, vigour and protection from the elevation. Therefore, there needs to be manipulation in the vineyard to produce intense, complex flavours. The wines are always a lot softer and sweeter than Bannockburn.
