2015 By Farr Sangreal SPECIAL $79 (RRP $85): Mike Bennie, Winefront 95 points - '...Brilliant release from the Geelong stalwart. Spiced cherry, game meat, touch of briar, whiff of clove oak. Evocative scents from the glass, takes you to butcher’s shops and florists. Soft in the palate, spreads on sheets of fine tannin, mouthwatering acidity, spritely to finish. A quilt caught on the line in a southerly wind. Beautiful sweet-sour-savoury fruit flavours, pitch perfect spice and herbal nuance. Unreal feel here, so unique in its way. Savour it.'
2015 By Farr Farrside SPECIAL $79 (RRP $85): Mike Bennie Winefront 95 points - 'Love that brambly, forest floor, pickled cherry, sweet spice scent. Has that garrigue, savoury character through and through. Finesse to the max. Svelte, elegance, understated. Delicious, moreish fruit, spice and mineral flavours. Wonderful lingering flavours and aromas. Idiosyncratic in the best possible sense. This is an outstanding wine.'
