winemaking and wine
Two Hands Areas Barossa Valley Shiraz
2005 produced wines of stellar power and concentration whilst remaining perfectly balanced. The 2005 Ares is no exception. Black to the core in colour. Very complex amalgam of aromas such as; licorice, tar, earth, cedar chocolate and the blackest of fruits such as boysenberry, blackberry and fresh prunes. Incredibly viscous and concentrated with excellent poise and balance for such a powerful wine, the acid and tannins working in perfect harmony. The tannins are integrated throughout and will help the wine mature gracefully.
Crushed and fermented in 5-10 tonne open top fermenters with regular pump overs; three daily during peak fermentation to extract colour and tannin. Following 7-21 days of maceration, the dry free run is drained to tank where the wine is then racked to barrel. Malolactic fermentation takes place in barrel. Minimal fining and non filtered.
Two Hands Aphrodite Barossa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
Aphrodite is the second wine in our Flagship line up, representing the vey best cabernet sauvignon made by Two Hands Deep, almost impenetrable black in the glass.Very aromatic and concentrated aromas of; cassis, Satsuma plum, tar, scorched earth, mineral, tobacco and candied licorice.
Wow! This is a seriously sensual wine. The palate weight and fruit purity are intense but beautifully balanced. Density, precision and balanced tannins add to the enjoyment, with an abundance of black fruits weighing everything to equilibrium.
Crushed and fermented in 5 tonne open top fermenters with regular pump overs; three daily during peak fermentation to extract colour and tannin. Following 7-21 days of maceration the dry free run is drained to tank. The skins are then pressed and the pressings transferred to the same tank, the wine is then racked to barrel. Malolactic fermentation takes place in barrel. Minimal fining and unfiltered.
Two Hands Aerope Barossa Valley Grenache
Representing the very best grenache made by Two Hands, Aerope was selected from exceptional barrels produced by an 80 year old dry grown vineyard on Radford Road at Greenock.
Deep red with dark purple hue to the core.
The nose shows notes of cinnamon, vibrant red fruits, menthol, followed by rich dark chocolate, figs and stewed plums.
The mouthfeel is dense and coating. There is a wave of dark cherry and rhubarb which rolls on to supple and very fine soft juicy tannins.
The grapes were crushed into and fermented in open top potters, with regular pump overs to extract colour and tannin. The grapes were then pressed and the wine was transferred to tank and then racked to barrel for oak maturation.
