Purple Hands Wines is proud to release the first ever vintage of our Planta Circa Cabernet Sauvignon.
The Planta Circa wine is made from ancestor vines that were planted around 1880 – 1890 (hence the Planta Circa “planted some time around….”) just outside Lyndoch in the southern Barossa (read the full story on how we discovered this Ancestor Vines here).
There are only 468 vines and we get just two barrels of wine from these *ancient vines.
These vines are some of the oldest Cabernet vines in Australia and also the world, because Phylloxera affected the Cabernet vines in France and they were replanted after Australia planted it’s early Cabernet.
We are very lucky and proud to be the custodians of these vines and producing such an exclusive wine that is a little piece of history of the Barossa. We have already received a review from Wine Showcase magazine with a 96 pt rating.
Be quick to get a piece of Barossa history!
