By Farr Cote Vineyard Chardonnay Geelong 2016 / 17


Geelong Victoria, Australia 750ml |13% ABV  Grape Variety: Chardonnay  

The wine has a great fruit expression that is well integrated with French oak. The soil characteristics have come through in the style of wine. The palate is fine but firm, with great acidity, texture, and length. This wine is rich in flavour, yet very refined.

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. The limestone of this site is not exposed on the surface as at other sites. The limestone starts 20 to 30cm below the surface, to the depths of the root zone of the vines. It is a very exposed north-facing slope. The clones used for the chardonnay are a mixture of Dijon clones and Penfolds 58.

This buttery Chardonnay pairs well with lemon and rosemary chicken.
