Why you'll love it?
The Sangreal Vineyard is the oldest planting of the By Farr Estate. Planted in 1994 on a slope of red ironstone and limestone land. The rows run north to south, gaining full sun exposure throughout the day and resulting in prettier, more perfumed wines. It’s always the first vineyard to be harvested and is consistently made with 60 to 70% whole bunch and aged in new oak for 18 months. The wine is unfined and unfiltered in order to retain its natural flavour and bouquet. In Old French, san graal or san gréal means "Holy Grail" and sang réal means "royal blood". Fitting name for a wine that forms the backbone of the By Farr wines. Sangreal is the most seamless and perfumed of the three single-vineyard Pinots.
Deep dark red colour. Pronounced, intense nose with aromas of spicy ripe dark cherries, dark plum, sweet spices, cloves and a hint of star anise.
