By Farr Farrside Pinot Noir 375ml 2015
I believe I said this last year – yet again my favourite of the new releases. In full agreement with Nick Farr’s notes and boy does it age well. Nick included a bottle of the 2010 vintage in a recent tasting at the shop – what a magnificent wine! But back to the superb 2015 vintage – one of the best ever. Deeply complex with dark cherry, rustic earth and savoury notes. Autumnal tones with just a perfect touch of ripe stem. It’s powerful and intense with lots of brown spice and great acidity. It builds and builds and opens on the finish. Hard to keep your hands off, but please cellar some for 5-10 years. Highly recommended. – Ian Cook, FWC.
