Description

  • Lightly oaked
  • Black & red berries
  • Subtle vanilla
  • Medium bodied

This a medium bodied Merlot with typical black and red berry fruit flavour, subtle cigar box due to a small portion of Cabernet and light vanilla oak. 

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.

This was a challenging year and so very much makes you think of Australia. It was a warmer vintage with only sporadic rains in some parts causing the berries to ripen sooner than prior years. Through great vineyard, water and canopy management the resultant fruit is bright and flavourful with a soft acidity. This is a vintage showing up front fruit flavours and perfect for drinking from the get-go.

Fully de-stemmed before fermentation in a mix of open and closed tanks. The wine was primarily vinified without the influence of oak for maximum fruit expression before blending with a component aged in three and four year old French oak.

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.

Food Pairing: The wine is soft and carries long delivering a very satisfying array of flavours that will marry perfectly with braised meat dishes.
