Winemaker's Notes:

The color is black with magenta hues. On the nose is a high impact bouquet of blue to black fruits such as, blueberry, blackberry and Satsuma plum. The aromas are complex and laden with vanilla, charcuterie, mocha and subtle spices. The palate is concentrated and intense with a lingering texture across the mid and late palate. A firm structure with tight but fine dry tannins married with densely intertwined fruit and juicy mid-palate fruit weight.

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.
