New World Pinot Noir - TOUR PRES PINOT NOIR, By Farr. Geelong, Victoria, Australia

2013 TOUT PRÈS PINOT NOIR, By Farr. Geelong, Victoria, Australia

Alcohol Percentage: 13.5%
Area: By Farr are based in Geelong, about 80km west of Melbourne. It's not a beautiful area but the cooling ocean breezes and the aged limestone soils make it ideal for growing Pinot Noir. Tout Près is a single, densely planted vineyard (7,500 vines per hectare)
Grape Variety: Pinot Noir, all fermented with 'whole bunches', all matured in new oak for a year
Producer: Gary Farr and his son Nick have 33 acres of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Both have worked many vintages at the much revered Domaine Dujac in Morey-St-Denis - where the Seysses family are great believers in the use of whole bunches for fermentation. (It results in paler colours, but finer aromatics)
Old Bridge Rating: Expensive, for sure, but this is fine, delicate, very 'pure' Pinot Noir of a kind that you will rarely find outside Burgundy. This is Farr's top wine and, amazingly, does not show the new oak at all
Press Reviews: "Medium ruby-purple in color, the 2010 Tout Pres Pinot Noir gives notes of black cherries, pomegranate, cloves, anise and cinnamon stick with touches of Mediterranean herbs, violets and chocolate. Medium-bodied, it is exquisitely structured with a medium level of very finely grain tannins, refreshing acidity, a great concentration of youthful, taut fruit, and a long, earthy, savory finish. Still very tight-knit and primary, it should drink best 2013 to 2018+. 93+ points"
