About The Wine

Top notch McLaren shiraz at reasonable prices are not always the easiest to find but we think we've nailed it with this organic example from Farm Hand.

Quintessentially McLaren with the trademark concentration and spice as well as the acid lift that keeps you going back for more.

Classic Aussie Shiraz for a very reasonable price.

About Farm Hand One of A Kind

Farm Hand has quickly become one of Australia’s most popular organic wine labels. It’s the essence of the Monash Valley in South Australia and, more recently, their second home of McLaren Vale.

The mix of older organic vines contribute to such a great tasting selection of varietal wines that are perfect for any occasion. Farm Hand is, and continues to be, one of the finest range of organic table wines available in Australia.

Organic, vegan friendly and made with minimal preservatives, these wines will keep your most hip and sustainable friends happy. As we question more and more about the food we put in our stomachs, so too do we ask about what’s going down our throats. Farm Hand wines are fresh and approachable and drink extremely well.

Additional Info

From The Producer

A premium Shiraz from one of Australia’s most lauded and loved regions – McLaren Vale. Winemaker Corey Ryan has made an organic Shiraz with 70% fruit sourced from the alluvial soils of McLaren Flats and 30% from Tatachilla that is known for its red, loamy soil. Premium organic Shiraz is hard to come by, but this is a top shelf rendition.

Sourced from low yielding organic Shiraz vines primarily in McLaren flats (a cooler part of the Vale). After fermentation consigned to barrel for 6 months in 20% new French oak and the rest in older large format barrels. Quality fruit handled well like this will ensure comfortable cellaring for 5-10 years.

Classic and distinct nose that typifies the McLaren Vale – a wondrous swathe of red and dark fruits with hints of chocolate and mocha. Delicious Shiraz palate in full flight with layers off dark fruit concentration, great weight and texture, a hint of complexing oak and a long, robust finish. Pair it with a sirloin steak.

Blend : Shiraz (100%)
Drink Until : 2026
Bottle Size : 750ml

Critic Reviews

Halliday Wine Companion

"Not as exciting as the sangiovese under the same banner, but stellar value all the same. Organically certified sourcing. Some whole-bunch spiciness to the flavour spectrum and spike to the tannins; a gentle waft of reductive tension to the juicy palate, together with spot-on aromas of florals, nori and blue fruits. The finish, easygoing and a little spicy. Not much to dislike." - Ned Goodwin MW (Halliday Wine Companion)

Do I have to order in dozens? No, please mix it up! You can order wines in any quantity and variation you like. You can order 1 bottle or 50. We challenge you to make the ultimate mixed pack of wine!

Are there volume discounts? No, our pricing is designed to be the best in market already - no marking up and then discounting down! For very large orders (weddings, etc) we are open to negotiating though. Just give us a call.

Do we price match? Yes, within reason. Everyday low & consistent pricing is something we strongly believe in. We want our customers to feel confident they are always getting the best price. If you see a price lower somewhere else let us know and we'll consider matching it. We'll even retrospectively issue you store credit if you have already purchased from us but you see a lower price somewhere later on. Our price match policy can be seen here.

Can coupons and discounts be stacked? No, only one discount or coupon can be applied to an order at once.

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me? This means we are running low on stock of that wine. So for example, if the website will only allow you to add 3 bottles and no more, then that is all we have of that particular wine. The good news is we may be able to order more for you. Just contact us on 02 8376 8775 or and we'll organise the additional quantity for you.

Does Different Drop have a physical store? No. Just an a warehouse/office. We occasionally do events however, so sign up to our newsletter or follow us on instagram to stay in the loop.

Can I special order a wine you do not sell? If it’s doable, then we’ll make it happen. Just contact us directly via phone, chat or email and we’ll find out for you right away. Please note that in most cases special orders such as these will need to be in full case lots (6 or 12 bottles).
