The By Farr Chardonnay from 2011 is a very fine example of a producer that doesn’t alter their style but allows vintage variation.
“We are very happy with this wine off the back of the 2010 release.
We pressed this fruit very lightly to only extract the finest juice (550 litres per ton rather than 675 litres in a normal vintage) because of the delicate vintage that we experienced.
A little foot stomping was done to the fruit prior to pressing to help extract more phenolics due to the lighter pressing.
There is a more focused acidity line through this wine but still has the sites mineral and complex palate.
The barrel fermented and 100% malo flavours of this wine still show the Farr house style of understated richness even though from an extremely cool vintage” – Nick Farr
