Winemaker's Notes:

Delicately sweet with a gentle spritz. Incredibly refreshing and light bodied with lively exotic tropical fruit flavors and a hint of musk and rose petal.

Made from 100% White Frontignac (Muscat) sourced from 80 and 100 year old vines, Brilliant Disguise is a mere 6.5% alcohol and delicately sweet. This wine is fun and refreshing to drink with an amazingly versatile style that makes for a great aperitif particularly when served with a tangy salty cheese such as feta or young goat's cheese. It's also the perfect palate cleanser with fresh fruits and dessert.

About Two Hands Wines:

Two Hands Wines was founded in 1999 by Michael Twelftree and Richard Mintz. Their aim was, and still is, to produce the best possible wines from prized Shiraz growng regions throughout Australia. "Quality without compromise" is a core value that drives all decisions from fruit and oak selection to packaging and promotion. Winemaker Matt Wenk has been with Two Hands since 2002 and, together with Michael Twelftree, oversees every aspect of the winemaking process. Their flagship Shiraz, Ares, represents the very best parcels in each vintage and is sselected through an intense barrel classification process. This blend of Barossa Valley and McLaren Vale Shiraz displays the incredible depth of flavor and balance that are hallmarks of this wine.
