  • THE FINER DETAILS
  • WHO MADE IT?
  • THE FINER DETAILS
  • Crushed and fermented in three and give tonne open top fermenters with regular pump overs; three daily during peak fermentation to extract colour and tannin. Following an average of 12 days of maceration, the dry free run was drained to tank. The skins were then pressed and the pressings combined with the free run, the wine was then racked to barrel. Malolactic fermentation took place in barrel. Minimal fining and non-filtered.

    WHAT SHOULD YOU EXPECT?


    Notes of black cherry, plum mulberry and blueberry accented by notes of eucalypt, tobacco leaf, black pepper and a dash of mint chocolate. A medium to full bodied wine, your palate is hit with a lovely burst of primary blue fruits upon entry, complimented with complexing notes of Provencal herbs, eucalypt, dried flowers and pepper. The palate has lots of juicy fruit paired with good length and complexity. The finish is accented by fresh mint and cedar.

  • WHO MADE IT?
  • 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 mould 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. Two Hands’ first vintage was in 2000, starting with just 17 tonnes of fruit. The journey had started. Today, Two Hands is owned by Michael Twelftree, together with Colorado native Tim Hower. With regards to their winemaking style, Two Hands strive to produce wines that reflect their origin, meaning that they show the characteristics associated with the regions and vineyard sites from where the fruit was sourced. Fruit is the primary feature of the wines, supported by the tannin and acid structure. Minimal intervention and oak handling allow the character of the fruit to shine through. Six months after vintage, every barrel in the winery is blind tasted by Michael and Winemaker Ben Perkins and given a classification grade associated with its place in the Two Hands portfolio: from A+ to D (and anything C or below not used in Two Hands final production). With this focus on detail, it means only the best barrels make it through and quality is maintained even in the toughest vintages, albeit at lower quantities.
