SUPERB 5 STAR MCLAREN VALUE BEAUTY!
The Farm Hand wines are grown by the Grigoriou family, fourth generation wine growers, from almost one hundred acres of Organic Vineyards across South Australia.
This premium organic Sangiovese is from one of Australia’s most lauded and loved regions – McLaren Vale. Winemaker Corey Ryan has made an organic Sangiovese from an esteemed vineyard in the Vale paying homage to inspiration of the best in Chiani with an antipodean spin on it. Hard to find premium organic Sangiovese unless from italy but this is exceptional.
Dark purple in the glass. Hard to dispute the variety on the nose with trademark cherries leaping to the fore. There’s a little savoury note too with a leathery, herbal bay leaf character that’s really polished. On the palate there’s more of that cherry/berry intensity all carried along by chalky tannins and characterized by high acidity on the finish that is so typical of Sangiovese.
Absolutely superb. Pair it with an Osso Bucco, hard cheeses & good friends!
