By Farr Tout Pres Pinot Noir 2013 rates 97 points from Halliday

By Farr Tout Pres Pinot Noir 2013 is the flagship wine of By Farr from Geelong.  Tout pres means “closely planted” vines, based on rationale that competition between vines produces more intensely flavoured fruit. Yet again another vintage to rate in the top yearly pinots in James Halliday‘s definitive guide to Australian wine .. Australian Wine Companion, rating 97 points … “…The Farrs themselves would say it’s the vineyard’s unique terroir, including the ultra-close planting. Its the most savoury of the Pinots, but not so savoury that it diminishes the dark cherry/berry fruit and sweet spices at the heart of the wine.
