Irrewarra, Chardonnay, Victoria, Australia, 2019Regular price £38.00
Irrewarra is a new winemaking project by Nick Farr, who is known for his exceptional Pinot Noir and Chardonnay at By Farr in Geelong. This time, Nick has sought out a new frontier in Western Victoria, near the small town of Irrewarra (150 kilometres west of Melbourne). The name Irrewarra, an Aboriginal term meaning ‘long spear throw’, is a nod to the traditional hunting and farming country found here. All grapes come from a three hectare vineyard planted predominantly in Pinot Noir, with just under one hectare of Chardonnay.
The 2019 vintage has an array of citrus aromas on the nose. The palate is complex and full with notes of white nectarine and citrus fruit, a backbone of acidity and a long, mineral finish.
