Purple Hands Wines
When two good mates get together, one being one of Australia’s most experienced winemaker and the other in possession of an insatiable passion for wine, the inevitable had to happen and Purple Hands Wines came to be in 2006. From humble beginnings and a first vintage of 1,000 bottles, Craig Stansborough and Mark Slade have steered Purple Hands to become a highly regarded and exciting artisan Barossa winemaker.
At the 2019 Barossa Wine Show, Purple Hands Wines were awarded 8 gold medals and 2 trophies, including ‘Most Outstanding Small Winemaker’.
From the Stansborough Vineyard at Williamstown in the Southern Barossa Valley.

Sourced from an ancient vineyard in Barossa's south, this exceptional Grenache is bound to please!
Circa 1880 PF Zimmerman planted Grenache, Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon vines on his family property ‘Woodlands’ situated on the outskirts of Lyndoch.
A medium to full-bodied textured palate with cola and brick dust, hints of whole bunch poking through, this elegant and complex Barossa Shiraz will age gracefully over many years.
Produced from just 468 Cabernet Sauvignon vines planted circa 1880
