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 perfectly suited to Organic Viticulture. The well established vines (up to thirty years of age) are planted widely apart for airflow to minmise disease pressure and minimal drip irrigation ensures low yielding fruit with rich flavours and varietal expressiveness.
The nose is inviting and ripely fruited, all bright red-berried fruit, plums and sweet spice with a hint of savoury oak. The palate medium bodied and approachable with a dark berry and cassis flavours framed by soft tannins.
Youthfully charming and fragrant, the bouquet shows Black Doris plum, mulberry, violet and olive characters, leading to a succulent palate that is supple and smooth. It is flavoursome and lingering with a silky-smooth finish. At its best: now to 2024. Price: $15.00. Date Tasted: Sept 2019; Rating: 90 Points; Sam Kim; Wine Orbit
