Purple Hands Wines
2016 PURPLE HANDS AFTER FIVE WINE CO. SERATA
RRP $45 / 2031
51/39/10% blend of shiraz, montepulciano and aglianico. Depth of fruit is striking but more so is the wine’s balance. This feels fussed over in the best of ways. Red and black cherries, earth, asphalt, dry liquorice and a mere caress of creamy oak. Tannin casts a web from the mid-palate on. It’s high class; high quality. CM 13.5% alc. From the fantastic 2016 vintage, the Serata is a unique Barossa Valley single vineyard blend of three varieties. Shiraz adds depth and fruit sweetness, the montepulciano cherry fruit and earthy elements, while the aglianico adds florals, fine tannin and great length from its wonderful natural acidity. The resulting bright, textural wine is the perfect match for a rich meaty ragu.
