Purple Hands Wines

South Australia | Barossa Valley

Our Review

This is a partnership between Craig Stansborough, who provides the winemaking know-how and a 14ha vineyard of shiraz (northwest of Williamstown in a cooler corner of the southern Barossa), and Mark Slade, who provides the passion. Don’t ask me (James) how this works – I don’t know – but I do know they are producing outstanding single-vineyard wines (the grenache is contract-grown) of quite remarkable elegance. The wines are made at Illaparra winery, where Craig was chief winemaker for Grant Burge for over 25 years. Exports to the UK, Hong Kong and the Philippines. -JH


A boutique wine label from the southern Barossa, producing fruit driven wines of elegance and structure, with some intriguing blends incorporating Italian varietals. Purple Hands is also a member of the Artisans of Barossa. -JH


Shiraz, Grenache, Cabernet Sauvignon, Montepulciano, Aglianico. -JH
