Purple Hands Colours of the South Rosso 2019


Loving the label prints on the wines, designed by local Adelaide Hills artist Oliver Reutens. A fun field blend red consisting of a trio of Italians –  Negroamaro, Aglianico and Montepulciano which all play their part in making up the bigger picture. Red cherry and campari notes jump out of the glass and the delivery onto the palate is high-toned and crunchy with red currant, black olive and bramble plus some garden spices around the edges. This would definitely be one to whack in the fridge for a bit of a chill if you wanted to try a refreshing red on a hot day, and also to tame those graphity tannins. Drink with a charcuterie plate (prosciutto please) and some hard cow’s milk cheeses.
