After Five Wine Co. Single Vineyard Montepulciano 2018
Special Price $35.00 Regular Price $39.00
A wine that is both powerful and crunchy, with spice, black cherries, blanched beans and anise, plenty of acid and a fine tannin finish. In spite of its richness and depth, it also manages zest and liveliness. The tannins are powdery and then waxy. Magical and should satisfy both the hipsters and lumberjacks.

Doing vintage, you can’t help but have permanently purple hands. The red colouring and tannins seep into your pores and as your hands crack and glaze, become a temporary and changing tattoo, a memento of working your hands in wine. The two purple hands are Craig Stansborough, chief winemaker for Grant Burge, and Mark Slade. They have a small patch of Shiraz near Williamstown, a cooler part of the Barossa. They buy in Grenache and Mataro. Quality of the wines is utterly exceptional, made with purple hands and guaranteed to stain your tongue black. James Halliday rated Purple Hands Wines as one of the 10 best new 5 star wineries in his 2013 guide.
