Purple Hands Wines 'Colours of the South' Pinot Gris 2019
Special Price $19.00 Regular Price $22.00
Craig and Mark just make cracking good booze. We already knew how good and consistent they are with Barossa Shiraz, Grenache, Mataro and Cabernet. Turns out they are a dab hand with cool climate whites too. Crisp and dry, this is all about the pears. Only whole bunch pressings were used and 20% of this wines spent time in old French oak. The result is a mixture of freshness and texture. This is a wonderful Pinot Gris.

Purple Hands Wines
None yet but we like it!
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 momento 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.
