Aerope is the third wine in our Flagship line up, representing the very best Grenache made by Two Hands. Aerope was selected from a few exceptional barrels of Grenache that came from an 80 year old dry grown vineyard on Radford Road at Greenock.
Proprietor Michael Twelftree - Deep inky purple to black in color, the bouquet is layered and intense with notes of chocolate, rose petals, clay, scorched earth, minerals, lavender, wood oven smoke, tar and toffee. The palate starts out deep and plush with formidable weight, then hits you with an explosion of plumy dark fruits that roll on to very long soft fruity tannins; this all hangs together quite effortlessly. This is an exciting wine and one that will add another dimension to our Flagship series, I can't wait to see it tamed by a little time in the cellar before its release in March 2006.
