“An elevated offering of pinot noir from By Farr. We all know that whole bunch in fermentation plays a role here, but it’s the site/vines that count most for Nick Farr.
Love that brambly, forest floor, pickled cherry, sweet spice scent. Has that garrigue, savoury character through and through. Finesse to the max. Svelte, elegance, understated. Delicious, moreish fruit, spice and mineral flavours. Wonderful lingering flavours and aromas. Idiosyncratic in the best possible sense. This is an outstanding wine.”

"By Farr's 2015 Farrside Pinot Noir is by turns dark and brooding and bright and fresh. It almost seems to depend on which sip one takes. Is it black cherries or raspberries? Earthy and meaty or red-fruited and pure? That's the level of well-integrated complexity boasted by this exceptional wine. It's medium-bodied and solidly built, with firm but ripe tannins that softly frame the fruit, dressed up with hints of French oak. Already approachable, it should easily age through 2025."

96 points. Huon Hooke, The Real Review
"Full red colour with a good purple tinge, the bouquet stemmy and complex, its whole-bunch aspects very overt, with root vegetable and earthy overtones. A hint of leather. Traces of blackberry fruit emerging with airing. The palate is fruit-sweet and succulent, deliciously flavoured and lush, with softness and charm to burn. An utterly gorgeous wine. Long finish - real concentration. Balance and texture are its highlights."
Each vintage of Farrside pinot noir exhibits more masculinity, structure and savoury components, while deep meaty, spicy and mineral flavours also continue to evolve. A balanced array of red and black fruits, Farrside pinot noir is fresh and edgy with bucketloads of character. This is a firm yet delicate wine with a long-textured finish.
