Irrewarra, Pinot Noir, Victoria, Australia, 2018Regular 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.
This Pinot Noir has aromas of both sweet and sour cherries with notes of vanilla and a subtle earthiness. Good acidity and fine tannins give the palate an elegant structure, supported by flavours of stewed rhubarb, sweet spices and a savoury finish.
