IT'S ALL IN THE DETAILS

This single-block wine is sourced from just 1.02 ha of a 17-year-old gently sloping 2.76 ha Chardonnay vineyard. The mottled appearance of the clay soil is caused by a high percentage of ironstone pebbles, much like the Ferrous vineyard. This siliceous influence helps infuse the resulting wines with linearity and minerality. The grapes were gently whole-bunch pressed directly into French oak barriques (15% new), where fermentation occurred spontaneously with ambient yeasts. After fermentation the wine was aged on lees (without battonage) for 12 months, with the only racking occurring directly prior to bottling. The wine was bottled without fining and with minimal filtration.

The nose of the 2015 Farrago is initially dominated by flint and wet rocks with other typical Farrago notes following: mandarin, tangerine and orange blossom. Subtle fennel and bran aromas come and go. Intense ruby grapefruit and lime flavors dominate, with penetrating acidity flowing through the palate. There is an underlying fleshiness that also helps drive the wine along. Long, seamless and powerful, this is a Farrago destined for a long life.
