Dark, dense and peppery, with a bay leaf edge to the brooding black cherry and licorice flavors. Firm tannins don't cover the cherry flavor as it persists on the finish... Wine Spectator. A Syrah wine from South Australia in Australia. 2003 Two Hands Shiraz Ares 750ml

Winemaker's Notes:

About Two Hands: The Two Hands are Michael Twelftree and Richard Mintz, who founded the company before the 2000 Vintage, with a clear objective of making the best possible Shiraz based wines from the best Shiraz producing regions with in Australia. In 2000 they processed just 17 ton of Shiraz from McLaren Vale and Padthaway. In 2001 they increased production to 120 ton from Padthaway, McLaren Vale and the Barossa Valley and in 2002 they proceed 150 ton of fruit from Clare Valley, Padthaway, McLaren Vale and the Barossa Valley which included a few lots of Grenache and Cabernet Sauvignon. In 2003 they plan to add a Shiraz based wine from Heathcote, Victoria. Richard and Michael are focused on making the best wines possible with out taking any short cuts and bring the wines to the market place at consistent and fair price points. The wines have been described by Jancis Robinson as "exceptional…densely charming, gently oaked style". Fragrant, textured, supple and juicily ripe the wines are of fantastic quality. With the pick of the best barrels, exceptional fruit and gentle, stylish wine-making this is a tremendously exciting range of wines. Labelling is original, classy and compelling. Ares is one of three Flagships, representing the very finest selection of Barossa Valley Shiraz made by Two Hands. Dense purple black to the core. Layers of black fruit with a waft of cedary oak. Layers of complexity on the palate framed by well handled oak and a fine integrated tannin structure.
