Description

  • French oak
  • Blackcurrant & mulberry
  • Bright acidity
  • Soft tannins

This wine presents a classically Cabernet nose that is lifted and expressive, displaying mellow red fruits, complemented by a herbal character and notes of mocha oak. The palate is fresh 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 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.

2020 had its challenges with a dry start and only a small portion of rain and with much of the country suffering drought conditions. The warm dry spell continued in Decemnber with some extreme hot temperature days recorded. Thankfully due to one of the coolest January's on record the vines were able to re-address the balance. It was a late ripening year and yields were down but despite the challenges it will be another excellent vintage across South Australia.

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: Pair with lamb shanks and olive mash.
