Only a few hundred cases of this profound red wine are made each vintage, crafted without compromise from the very best parcels of Shiraz grown to the most distinguished sites in the Barossa and McLaren Vale. True to style with great concentration and density balanced by elegance and restraint, in perfect pitch and fine harmony. The tannins are silky and refined, the mid palate dense and rich. A statuesque, deeply flavoured Shiraz, the estate flagship, matured in exclusively new French oak barriques, a memorable experience that's approachable on release.
The best possible Shiraz wine from the most prized vineyards. Crushed, destemmed and fermented in five, seven and ten tonne open top fermenters with regular pump overs up to three times daily during peak fermentation for the extraction of colour and tannin. Following seven to twenty one days of maceration on skins the free run juices are drained to tank as the skins are pressed. Both the free run and pressings are blended to tank and then racked to oak after twenty four hours. Malolactic fermentation takes place in barrel. Ares is treated to a minimal fining and is bottled unfiltered. Ares reposes twenty three months in oak, the final year is spent in completely new French hogsheads. Alcohol 14.9%
TASTING NOTES
Deep red and black with magenta rim. Bright and intense, volumes of rich berries, plums and maraschino cherry. The aromas are continually evolving, also bringing cedary spice, subtle lavender, bitter chocolate, tar and fudge. A palate with great depth of flavour, a wine of finesse. Juicy plums and blueberry dominate early to mid palate, then underlying cedary chocolate notes emerge carrying the wine through, tightening up again to a focused core of fruit, tannins and spice.

About Two Hands Winery
The 'two hands' are Michael Twelftree and Richard Mintz who formed the company in 1999 with the clear objective of making the best possible Shiraz
Michael came to the wine industry from a construction background having spent years attending wine tastings and collecting the wines of the world. In 1998, he established his own Australian wine export company and after three successful years of selling other people's wine, he and business partner Richard Mintz decided to start their own operation.
