Purple Hands Wines Mataro Grenache Shiraz 2019

Special Price $25.00 Regular Price $35.00
Yet another exceptional 3-way blend from Purple Hands – this is medium-bodied but with a fruit intensity of a much bigger wine… and could very easily be priced at $50 plus. The brightness of red fruit, lusciousness of marzipan and intensity are all exceptional. Loads of red fruits, black fruits, clove, cinnamon, fairy dust... etc

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.
