‘The RP Pinot Noir (RP – Robyn Pamela) is in recognition of the matriarch. It is not only the support and goffering that Robyn has endured for Gary’s 40 year career. She has been in the vineyard and planted the first vines, driven the tractors, filled barrels and pigeaged at midnight. If we are ever a man down Robyn has always been the first one we have called to fill the void no matter the job, no matter the time of day. You can always count on mum.
The fruit for this wine is sourced from the Cote Vineyard as is the GC Chardonnay. A close planted / high density planting of Pinot Noir on a exposed cote. These hillsides facing North, North East and East will be the backbone of the Farr dynasty for decades to come.
TASTING NOTE - ‘Of all of the Pinots Noir at by Farr, the RP named after living Matriarch Robyn Pamela Farr is the most slender and febrile, yet this delicacy is only in comparison to the other By Farr Pinots, which start of richer and more characterful than many. Only the finest wood, the most perfect barrel expression during elevage, from the best fruit parcels make it into the RP, and the newly released wine is sitting tightly coiled, waiting. Obvious spice and tang from whole bunch, but nothing underdone, all ripe and resolved, it heads off those vineyard elements with a formidable counter punch from the ripe sweet fruit notes. It’s comforting spice sits right behind and then comes the acid. It takes each element of the previous three pinots it seems, and put make them on display in one incredible wine.’ Nick Farr
