Quick Overview

"Single vineyard. Made by Purple Hands. Blend of shiraz, montepulciano and aglianico. All French oak, most of it old. Bowled over by balance. It’s bold with flavour but everything here feels so well placed. It tastes of licorice, redcurrant, black cherries and peppery herbs, and while there’s a velvety/creaminess to the texture oak is not a major flavour contributor.
Tannin spreads and runs through a good deal of the wine, almost always a good sign.
Length, tick. Fabulous."

Product Description

Sourced from the Stansborough vineyard, we are lovers of blends that bring to life something is unique and quite different from any of the single varietals that go into the wine. 


When we planted Montepulciano and Aglianico alongside the Shiraz the idea was certainly to release single varietals but also with the intention of producing a single vineyard blend. Why? Complexity and structure and length, these two varieties deliver these elements, a perfect foil when blended with Shiraz.  We think the combination of the Australian and Italian varieties provides an interesting wine with a lot of complexity and style. As such we sought a name for the blend that had roots in the Italian side, and came up with the Italian word Serata which translates roughly into coming together and having a pleasant evening with friendsĀ, a very appropriate name for an After Five wine.


Purple red colour. Aromas of Cherry, rose, liquorice & strawberry. Intriguing palate that show the depth and body of the Shiraz, cherry flavours from the Montepulciano with Aglianico giving rose hints and fine long tannin and welcome natural acidity.
