Gary and Nick Farr are the father and son duo behind By Farr in Geelong. As Winemakers and vignerons, the Farr’s established their latest venture in 1999, having over thirty years and sixty-two vintages between them. Prior to By Farr, Gary Farr was winemaker at Bannockburn, helping to put this iconic Australian winery on the international landscape. Gary and Nick Farr inject passion, persistence and patience into each of their wines and it shows with subtle and striking fruit characters that improve with time in the bottle. Of particular interest to Gary and Nick is creating wines that showcase the unique characters of the quality sites they have chosen.

‘The GC Chardonnay (GC – Gary Charles) is attributed to all the knowledge we have been able to extract from Gary to create a close planted/high density planting of chardonnay on a exposed cote. These hillsides facing North, North East and East will be the backbone of the Farr dynasty for decades to come. They consist of the most suitable clones, rootstocks, trellising and management you will find for our landscape. This is our tribute to what ‘Gazza’ has achieved and provoked over 40 years not only in our region but for chardonnay and pinot noir of Australia.

The fruit is hand-picked then whole-bunch pressed in the winery. All the solids are collected and chilled before being put to barrel, which are 35 per cent new French oak. A natural fermentation will occur at cool temperatures over the next one to two months, and then a small amount of stirring helps start malolactic fermentation. The wine is then racked, fined and lightly filtered before bottling 11 months after picking. A complete chardonnay.
