By Farr GC Chardonnay 2022


If there’s a better chardonnay in Australia I have not tasted it. A wine that is elevated beyond the usual descriptors of style, fad or fashion, the GC is in it’s own right one of the country’s most absorbing and delicious wine, of any variety. Immensely complex with spring Jasmine, Victoria plum, white cherry, grapefruit, apricot, rock melon, yellow peach, subtle oak, condensed milk, quince, fig and fresh herbed bread crumbs. Rich and succulent, supremely elegant, with incredible lanolin, fluffy fat and flesh on the mid palate, tensioned by a salty tang and the freshest, purest fruit. Nothing is overdone, all the elements are balanced and showing strength, offer an equality of tension. That word tension again, reserved for only the greatest wines. Incomparable. Waters Wine Co


Light-mid yellow, bright, with complex aromas of bread crust, buttery croissant, oat biscuit and creamy lees nuances, the palate fresh and bright, intense and alive with lemon juice, lemon zest flavours—quite tight and reserved with a dry finish and tension that suggests it will build more complexity and richness with time. It’s already an outstanding chardonnay of great flavour and refinement. 98 points – Huon Hooke, The Real Review


The GC Chardonnay (Gary Charles) is attributed to all the knowledge we have been able to extract from Gary to create a close planted/high density Chardonnay on an exposed côte. 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 the chardonnay and pinot noir of Australia.
