Colours of the South Pinot Bianco
Colours of the South is a label developed in 2019 by the talented team at Purple Hands, inspired by their Southern Barossa ‘Stansborough’ vineyard. The label itself was designed by Adelaide artist Oliver Reutens as an abstract depiction of the vineyard, and truly captures the colours of the landscape of this beautiful part of Australia. This label is home to their less traditional varietals, so encompasses Pinot Gris, Pinot Bianco, Mourvedre and their Rosso, a delightful red blend created from the Italian varietals that grow so well in their part of the Barossa.
Pinot Bianco (or Blanc if you happen to be in France) is such a delightful and under-rated varietal. This is an elegant wine whose citrus and orchard fruit flavours are tempered by notes of almond, white flower and flint, giving a savoury edge to the finish. 3 months on lees has added texture and complexity to the wine, delivering a delicious mouth-feel. If you haven’t dipped your toe into the world of Pinot Bianco, this is a very fine place to start!
“Crunchy nashi pear and grapefruit with hints of white flowers, almond paste, nougat and stone. Slinky and slippery in the mouth yet tempered nicely by crystalline acidity that cuts a brisk cadence over the tongue, exiting with notes of pear, marzipan and stone.” Dave Brookes, James Halliday’s Wine Companion
