This single-block wine is sourced from just 0.7 ha of 23-year-old gently sloping Chardonnay vines within the 2.76 ha Farrago block. The mottled appearance of the clay soil in the Farrago block 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 fruit was gently whole-bunch pressed directly into French oak barriques (20% of which were new), and fermentation commenced spontaneously with ambient yeasts. Following fermentation, the wine was aged on lees (without battonage) for 11 months and the wine was racked only once, directly prior to bottling. The wine was bottled without fining and with minimal filtration.

The 2021 Farrago delivers its classic aroma set – mandarin, pink grapefruit, flint, and savoury grains – with purity and elegance. Well-defined flavours in the citrus spectrum – with a touch of something more exotic – are delivered in a beautifully-weighted palate. A precise spine of fine acid runs long, culminating with a pithy grapefruit-powered finish. This wine will significantly benefit from time in the cellar.
