More Information

The Farrside vineyard consists of black volcanic soil over limestone on a northeastfacing slope. The vine rows run east to west to shade the fruit from over exposure. It’s a mixture of 114, 115, 777, 667 and MV6 clones. Although the Farrside and Sangreal vineyards are only 300m apart, the differing conditions mean that this vineyard is picked 10 to 12 days later. The darker soils and cooler growing conditions give a more masculine and edgy wine. The fruit is hand-picked and sorted in the vineyard, then fermented in an open-top fermenter. Roughly 50% of the fruit will be destemmed and then cold soaked for four days. Nick uses only the natural yeast for the fermentation process, which takes roughly 12 days. Grape-stomping (known as pigeage) will occur two to three times a day depending on the amount of extraction required, and the wine is then placed in 50  to 60% new Allier barrels by gravity. It is racked by gas after secondary fermentation, then again at 18 months to be bottled.

From the black soils of the Farrside vineyard, this Pinot Noir is powerful, with notes of red meat, dark spice and black cherries. These flavours work alongside decadent spice and tannin, creating a wine of significant presence, exquisite balance and length. – By Farr

    More body than I expected

    Delicious wine with surprising body but lacked that touch of refinement and elegance that you find in a true 5 star wine, in my opinion.
