2013 Two Hands Shiraz Ares
2013 Two Hands Shiraz Ares, From South Australia. A powerful, bold and broad wine, offering sandalwood, smoke and black licorice aromas that weave in and out of the blackberry, kirsch and plum flavors. For all of the presence, there’s also elegance and refinement, with velvety tannins and a long, persistent finish. Drink now through 2030.
The idea for Two Hands was born in September 1999 when founders Michael Twelftree and Richard Mintz sat at a friend’s engagement party and decided it was time to make their own wine and market it on the world stage.
The original aim was, and still is, to make the best possible Shiraz-based wines from prized growing regions throughout Australia. With so much Australian wine being sold around the globe under multi-region labels in a formulaic style, the intention was to break the mold and showcase the diversity of Australian Shiraz by highlighting regional and vineyard characteristics by allowing the fruit to be the primary feature of the wines.
