Sourced from Carig Stansborough’s Vineyard in Williamstown at the bottom end of the Barossa. The 2019 still available on the Purple Hands website.
Purple Hands Wines, Shiraz, Barossa Valley, 2020
Inky hue with a bright rim. Calm and content nose: Ripe fleshy plum, baking spices, baked blueberry muffin, rum ‘n raisin dark choc and vanilla hints. Fine depth and flow to the darkly spiced palate with surprising lift and brightness to the finish. Firm, tight tannins and long persistence.
Rating: 18.25/20 (93/100)
