Purple Hands Planta Circa Ancestor Vine Grenache
Bright crimson colour leads to aromas of raspberry, cherry, earth, sweet spice with herbal hints from the whole clusters. The palate is lively and fleshy with tannins giving a crunchy texture. Excellent flavour with persistent sweet red berry flavours combined with a soft gentle finish that gives a wine that you can enjoy now or over the next 10 years. Circa 1880 PF Zimmerman planted Grenache vines on his family property Woodlands situated on the outskirts of Lyndoch. The site is around 250m above sea level with a Southerly aspect. Soil consists of deep sand over clay. The vines are own-rooted, clone is unknown. The vines are goblet hand pruned to 20 buds. The mid rows are cultivated to winter active fescue. Minimal irrigation is used in very dry years. The Grenache was hand-picked on the 7 March 2018. Around 35% whole clusters were tipped into open fermenters with the balance crushed on top, header boards were placed on day 2 of ferment. Temperatures were allowed to reach 32C with pump-overs performed 1-2 times daily. After 10 days on skins the fruit was basket pressed and transferred into older puncheons to undergo malo-lactic fermentation. Post malo the wine was then left 3 weeks before SO2 was added in place, the wine was left on lees and topped regularly. The wine was racked early December 2018 and underwent a coarse filtration prior to bottling. Purple Hands is a boutique wine business located in the southern end of the Barossa Valley, South Australia. Craig Stansborough and Mark Slade started Purple Hands in 2006 from humble beginnings. Just over a tonne of hand picked Shiraz was crushed and barrel fermented in Craigs shed making around 100 dozen. The name (as you might've guessed) comes from the staining of their hands, as they crushed and handled the must through this first harvest. Ever since their first vintage the ultimate aim has been to produce premium Barossa Valley wines that speak of their 32 acre patch of dirt. As the operation has grown, the duo now produce a range of wines, sourcing fruit from nearby vineyards to supplement their own vines. This includes Grenache and Mataro, as well as Pinot Gris from the Adelaide Hills.
McLaren Vale III Associates Four Score Grenache
The vines used to produce this wonderful Grenache are 80 years old (hence the name!) and it shows. Ripe cherry, berry fruit and a touch of spice that lingers on the palate. Lovely soft tannins that will reward medium term cellaring.

Kalleske Old Vine Grenache
Kalleske Old Vine Grenache, Barossa Valley The Kalleske family makes their Old Vine Grenache in the Barossa Valley, where they have been farming and growing grapes since the 1800s. Yet this old Barossa family have been cited by Max Allen in 2010 as a model for the future of the Barossa. Estate grown, vinified and matured on the Kalleske Greenock estate, the Old Vine Grenache is made from a single vineyard planted in 1935 as bush vines on the Kalleske farm. The shallow sand and light clay ensure that these dry-grown grapes are intensely flavoured fruit.
Cirillo The Vincent Grenache
Marco Cirillo, the guru of Grenache. A true artisan, Marco is the custodian of some of oldest Grenache vines in the world and remarkably he tends to each of the old, gnarly bush vines by hand, some standing 6-feet tall! The resulting Grenache that makes The Vincent has beautiful, fine grained tannin along with fruit that is remarkably vibrant and appealing to the palate.
