Farrside by Farr 2008, Geelong Pinot Noir

This is serious Pinot, full stop, quote etc!
Full of ripe red and black cherry. Gary’s years at Domaine Dujac show, well knit together with an easily accessible new world fruit, backed up by tightly wound acidity and good tannins without the over extraction you find with many Aussie Pinots.

Charming and elegant, well rounded and show you more layers as you go.

As with many high end New World Pinot Noirs, this is immediately accessible but continued to develop in the glass. Deepening favors of cherry pits and black walnuts with a drain minerality I would find more common in a Nuits St. Georges 1er Cru from a good producer, without the 5 years extra cellaring.
