Tasting notes from the winery for Farm Hand Merlot 2020

This a medium bodied wine with typical black and red berry fruit flavour, subtle cigar box and light vanilla. The wine is soft and has great length, delivering a very satisfying array of flavours that will marry perfectly with many red meat dishes. 
 
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.
 
VINEYARDS: The moderate, dry climate with very low rainfall during autumn and fertile soils are perfectly 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
 
VINTAGE: 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 December 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.
 
WINEMAKING: 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.
