The Farrside vineyard consists of black volcanic soil over limestone on a northeast facing slope. The vine rows run east/west to shade the fruit from over exposure. It is made up with a mixture of 114, 115, 777, 667 and MV6 clones. Even though the Farrside and Sangreal vineyards are only 300 metres apart, the differing conditions means that this vineyard is picked 10 to 12 days after all others. The darker soils and cooler growing conditions exhibits a more masculine and edgey wine.
Semi translucent dark crimson red colour with dark red mauve hue. The nose delivers outstanding intensity with perfumed scents of dark cherries, anise and game followed by some earth and spice end notes. The palate follows on from the nose’s intensity delivering a powerful flavour profile of dark and black cherries, spice and anise followed by some gamey characters. Superb power wave and richness. Velvet smooth tannin structure with very long aftertaste of black cherry, anise, spice and game.

If anything, has even more purple shade than the Mornington wine; the density of the bouquet leaves you in no doubt this is an imperious pinot, the palate fully living up to the message from the bouquet, with layer-upon-layer of dark fruits playing tag with the ripe tannins that provide texture and structure on the long finish. Drink by 2023.
