Two Hands Shiraz Barossa Valley Ares 2010
COLOR Dense black AROMA Dark fruits, bitter chocolate, subtle char, graphite and spice, grilled meats. TASTE Extremely complex and flavorsome but quite restrained. Full of dark fruits and chocolate, spice and char that roll on and on, all wound up with fine long subtle tannins. Length/Type of Fermentation: Crushed, de-stemmed and fermented in five, seven and 10 ton open top fermenters with regular pumpovers; up to three times daily during peak fermentation to extract color and tannin. Following 7-21 days of "on skins" maceration the free run was drained to tank with the skins then pressed. Both the free run and pressings are blended to tank and then racked to oak after 24 hours. Malolactic fermentation takes place in barrel. Minimal fining and non-filtered. Length/Type of Aging: 23 months maturation with the final 12 months in 100% new French oak hogsheads.
Очень ровное благородное вино.

External Reviews for Two Hands Shiraz Barossa Valley Ares
This flagship Shiraz from Two Hands is a select blend of the finest barrels of from Barossa Valley and McLaren Vale. A very limited production that's aged for 23 months in oak barrels including 12 months in 100% new French oak. The IWC scored it 94 points and Wine Spectator gave it 95 saying "Red Big and brawny, with a dense core of fresh blueberry, currant, raspberry and dusky spice flavors that sprawl over a layer of prickly tannins. It all melds together on the finish, shooting off sparks of espresso and licorice. The afterburners kick in and this sails off into a long coda. Needs time to soften. Shiraz. Best from 2011 through 2019." On Sale!
There are three "icon" wines in the portfolio. The opaque purple-colored 2006 Ares is a 100% Shiraz cuvee sourced from Barossa (77%) and McLaren Vale (23%) which received some "200% new oak" treatment. Following a barrel selection of the winery's best Shiraz (not all of which was in new oak), the wine spent its last 12 months of elevage in 100% new French barriques. It offers up a room-filling perfume of toasty oak, pencil lead, vanilla, pepper, sage, plum, and blueberry pie. Opulent and layered on the palate, this extracted, mouth-filling effort has tons of succulent fruit, savory flavors, and a very long, fruit-filled finish. It will reward 6-8 years of cellaring and have a drinking window extending from 2015 to 2031. Polished and generous. A plush mouthful of cherry, blackberry and creamy spice flavors that linger effortlessly on the long, open-textured finish. Theres power in this wine, but it lurks below the glassy, seamless surface, ready to g...
The 2004 Shiraz Ares is spectacular. Aged 12 months in 100% new French oak, the Ares is produced from the finest 20 barrels from the Bella's Garden cuvee. Inky/blue/purple with notes of graphite, blueberries, blackberries, black currants, licorice, and smoke, this is a full-bodied, super-rich, intense, fabulously pure, rich Shiraz with a multidimensional mid-palate as well as a 45+ second finish. It will benefit from 2-4 years of bottle age, and should keep for 2-3 decades.
A majestic wine thatrsquo;s tremendously aromatic and dense in texture, but amazingly refined. Delineates its ripe plum, blueberry and currant flavors with precision, shading the fruit with nuances of coffee and dark chocolate, hinting at smoke and licorice as the finish laps at the palate like the shore of a deep lake. Shiraz. Best from 2010 through 2020.
The 2005 Shiraz ldquo;Aresrdquo; is a glass-coating opaque purple. The nose delivers tar, scorched earth, saddle leather, blueberry, and a hint of chocolate. Opulent, layered, and intensely flavored, it has excellent integration of oak, tannin, and acidity and enough hidden structure to evolve for up to a decade. Drink this tasty Shiraz through 2025.
