The initials RP stand for Robyn Pamela, Nick Farr’s mum and matriarch of the Farr family. The fruit for this wine is sourced from the Côte Vineyard, it’s a close-planted parcel on an exposed slope, with hillsides facing north, northeast and east comprising of the most suitable clones, rootstocks, trellising and management you’ll find on the Farr’s landscape. Fruit is handpicked and sorted in the vineyard, then fermented in an open-top fermenter. Between 40 to 50% of the fruit will be destemmed and then cold soaked for four days. Maturation takes place in 50 to 60% new Allier French oak barrels for 18 months.
This is one of the great Pinots we have made, with fantastic ageing potential – Nick Farr
Deep dark red colour with black tinged edges and a bright light red hue. Perfumed, captivating and intense the nose sends a complex array of violets, red to dark cherry, strawberry, subtle clove, forest floor, dried herb and spicy cedar aromatics sailing through the olfactory senses. A flood of rich dark cherry and ripe strawberry fruits expand across the breadth of the palate like a peacocks tail. Some meaty characters, clove, subtle vanillin cedar, forest floor and spicy dried herb characters then ensue. Texturally supple in its feel with super fine, velvet like tannins and bracing fresh acidity providing a great framework. Exemplary power with a very long and deliciously savoury finish. A stunning Burgundy inspired Pinot.
Cellar 6-8 years.
