The story & history behind: The ancestor vines of Planta Circa
These ancestor vines (equal to or over 125 years of age) inspire the Planta Circa label – literally “planted around the region of” as the exact date of the plantings remains a mystery. Purple Hands believe the cabernet vines are some of the oldest on their roots, still producing fruit today.
The Planta Circa cabernet was first released from the 2013 vintage and received a 97-point rating from James Halliday, which ranked it amongst the top Cabernet Sauvignon wines in the 2016 Halliday Wine Companion.
“This is pure and simple cabernet, elegant, long and finely structured. A great cabernet vintage for this great vineyard.”
James Halliday, published 18 June 2021
