Words from the winemaker, Nick Farr:
Named after patriarch Gary Charles (GC) Farr, this wine is the epitome of tension and definition, coming from the Côte Vineyard close to the winery. A wine with great fruit presence and varietal character at the front of the palate, the power of this site then takes over and it finishes with a very assertive line of acidity. As our greatest expression of Chardonnay, this wine has very quickly commanded a strong following around the world.
The 2021 GC has elegance and finesse; it’s not brittle but offers greater precision and detail than the 2020. White florals, citrus, nectarine, stones, with the colour just a notch deeper, and showing greater richness and density. It’s polished Chardonnay, utterly seamless, thrilling.
