Two Hands Ares Shiraz 2014 14% 750ml
The fruit was crushed into and fermented in 5, 7 and 10 tonne open top fermenters. During the peak of fermentation the batches received regular pump overs 2-3 times daily to extract colour, flavour and tannin. The average time on skins was 15 days. The free run was drained off and the skins were pressed, with the pressings then combined with the free run. After 24 hours the wine was racked to barrel where malolactic fermentation proceeded. The final blend was lightly fined and unfiltered prior to bottling.
Two Hands Wines was founded in early 1999 by Michael Twelftree and Richard Mintz.
Their intention was, and still is, to showcase the diversity of Australian Shiraz by highlighting regional characteristics and allowing the fruit to be the primary feature of the wines. Two Hands refers to the very personable approach taken with each parcel of grapes, no matter how big or small. The wines are carefully guided through the viticulture and winemaking process by Michael Twelftree. From the outset, Two Hands set out to be unique. This approach is reflected in everything from the names of the wines through to innovative packaging and, not least, the wines themselves. 'Quality without compromise' is a core value that drives all Two Hands decisions so, not surprisingly, the wines have received international acclaim from respected wine critics, with Robert Parker proclaiming Two Hands as '...the finest negociant operation south of the equator...' In November 2012, Two Hands was named in the Wine Spectator's annual Top 100 for the 10th consecutive year, an achievement that has never been equaled by any other winery the world over.Variety: Shiraz/Syrah
