Purple Hands Colours the South Pinot Blanc 2020
Fulfilling the Purple Hands mantra of single vineyard expressions, this captivating wine, sourced from the Barritt vineyard in the Barossa Ranges, has a fascinating journey in the winery – Craig Stansborough at the helm. Whole bunch pressed with different cuts going to four separate barrels for indigenous fermentation, then five months on lees. What has resulted is very smart: aromas that suggest pear, musk, grapefruit and tonic water with a palate that shows a clever balance of concentration and mouthfeel, acidity sitting underneath to allow medium weight structures and light talc textures to wrap it all together. Delicious.
