Farr Rising Mornington Pinot Noir

Expert Reviews

Nick Stock (2010 Vintage) says
Moved to the Regional Dirt Series, sourced from Merricks. This has bright, sweet sherry fruit, glossy, with poise from the get-go; good fragrance and lift, ripe and fresh. Gentle stem influence sits below the fruit: earthy, soulful and young, still settling. The palate s ripe and juicy, with bright-red cherry fruit, and musky tannins bubble through fleshy, cherry-flavoured pinot. The finish tightens nicely with gentle acid sizzle.

Purple-crimson; the bouquet is scented with flowery, spicy aromas, the palate precisely focused, with intense black cherry, plum and savoury spice nuances and a sense of purity.

A deep crimson red in the glass, the swirling complex spice here is entrancing - stalky, sappy pinot at its finest. It offers sweet, musk-dusted, ripe cherry fruit and a herbal thread. The palate's beautifully assembled and very, very even, making a sturdy impression with a web of fine tannin. Plum and dark-cherry flavour runs deep, and oak chimes in to produce a cola-like finish. One of Nick Farr's best yet.

Excellent purple hue typical of Mornington; a fragrant, almost flowery, bouquet of red cherry and wild strawberry; the palate is long and silky, carrying its delicious fruit flavours through to the finish and aftertaste.

Excellent hue - more purple than red; intense multilayered and multiflavoured fruits on both bouquet and palate; no question about ripeness here, nor the extreme length of the wine.

Campbell Mattinson & Gary Walsh (2007 Vintage) says
This is a stylish wine made in a particular, err, style. It's smoky and sappy and herbal, which may not sound appealing except that it works - mostly because everything is just so well proportioned. And it's not size that matters; it's proportion. This is light to medium in weight, with tangy sour-cherried notes, and it's delightful to drink.

Very good purple-red; a supple, silk and velvet palate, offering black cherry and plum, seamless oak and tannins. Lovely wine.

Clean and expressive; black plums and spice; immaculate structure, balance and length.

James Halliday (2002 Vintage) says
Fresh, fragrant, lively and tangy cherry aromas are mirrored in a long, vibrant and intense palate, with plum, cherry and spice; style and finesse.

James Halliday (2001 Vintage) says
Medium red-purple, fractionally less deep than its Geelong sister; the bouquet is slightly more fragrant, with some savoury spice aromatics, then a palate with dark cherry and plum; quite different mouthfeel and structure.
