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.
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.
