The Farm Hand wines are grown by the Grigoriou family, fourth generation wine growers, from almost one hundred acres of Organic Vineyards in the Monash Valley of South Australia.
The moderate, dry climate with very low rainfall during autumn and fertile soils is perfect suited to Organic Viticulture. The well established vines (up to thirty years of age) are planted widely apart for airflow to minimise disease pressure and minimal drip irrigation ensures low yielding fruit with rich flavours and varietal expressiveness
The nose is lifted and expressive, displaying mellow red fruits, a dusty herbal perfume, and notes of mocha oak. The palate is likewise open and medium bodied with blackcurrant, olive and mulberry flavours matched by subtle notes of tobacco. The wine is generous in the mid palate before soft tannins and bright acidity carry the wine to a lingering finish.
The wine is attractively fruited and fragrant on the nose showing blackcurrant, vanilla, almond and floral characters, followed by a beautifully weighted palate that is elegant yet flavoursome. It is silky and lingering with ripe fruit flavours and spicy nuances. At its best: now to 2024. Price: $15.00. Date Tasted: Sept 2019; Rating: 90 Points; Sam Kim; Wine Orbit
