The By Farr chardonnay comes from the same site as the Sangreal pinot noir—composed of red soil over limestone—and was planted in 1994. Maturation takes place in French oak, 30% new, for a period of approximately 11 months.

Rich, refined and long this is a superb Geelong Chardonnay.

Brilliant very pale straw colour with greenish tinged edges and a watery hue. Elevated white peach, honeycomb and light cashew aromas sail out of the glass followed by citrusy nougat, bees wax, light toasty oak and spice. Superb intensity of flavour and remarkable length combine with a citrusy freshness giving this otherwise richly textured Chardonnay plenty of verve. Powerful white peach, citrus, light honeycomb and cashew flavours are quite mouthfilling yet elegant. Underlying nuances of nougat, biscuity oak and spice are also present. Beautifully integrated acidity concluding with a very long and refined finish.
Cellar 5-6 years.
Alc. 13%
