Our Review

By Farr and Farr Rising continue to be separate brands from distinct vineyards. Growing pinot noir, chardonnay, shiraz and viognier; the vineyards are in conversion to organic. There are 6 different soils spread across the Farr property, with 2 main types: rich, friable red and black volcanic loam; and limestone, which dominates the loam in some areas. The other soils are quartz gravel through a red volcanic soil, ironstone (buckshot) in grey sandy loam with a heavy clay base, sandstone base and volcanic lava. The soil’s good drainage and low fertility are crucial in ensuring small yields of intensely flavoured fruit. Exports to the UK, Canada, Denmark, Sweden, Hong Kong, Singapore, Taiwan, Maldives and Japan. -JAMES HALLIDAY
