Purple Hands Wines

South Australia | Barossa Valley

James' Review

This is a partnership between Craig Stansborough, who provides the winemaking know-how and an 8ha 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 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 Grant Burge, where Craig is chief winemaker. Exports to the Philippines and China.
