Winery Notes
The By Farr Chardonnay comes from the same site as the Sangreal pinot noir, a red soil over limestone planted 1994. A very exposed and hungry north facing slope. The clones used for the chardonnay are a mixture of Dijon clones and Penfolds 58.

The fruit is hand picked then whole bunch pressed. All the solids are collected and chilled before being put to barrel, 30% new French. A natural fermentation will occur over the next 2 to 3 weeks at cool temperatures. Once fermentation has finished a small amount of stirring is used to help start malolactic fermentation. A full malo will finish mid Spring, the wine is then racked fined and lightly filtered before bottling 11 months after picking. A very mineral site for chardonnay.

Other Reviews…
Vibrant green hue; a simply stunning array of nectarine, spices, charcuterie and well-handled oak are on the bouquet; the palate is rich and generous on entry, tightening up across the palate, with a complex texture that lingers elegantly on the extraordinarily long finish; this is one of the most exciting and complete chardonnays to have come out of Australia.
