GRENACHE SHIRAZ MATARO
Bouyant raspberry, red cherry characters with a restrained savoury palate, grainy tannins backed by integrated oak. A serious food wine that shows what a wonderful marriage these three varietals make if blended with balance in mind.
Ares represents the very best selection of Shiraz from Two Hands Wines. A statuesque, powerful and deeply flavoured wine matured in new and one year old French oak.
2004 BRAVE FACES
Colour Deep plum
AromaAn intense bouquet of jet black plums, cloves and fennel; it is bright, bouncy and intense
PalateThe palate is soft and approachable with a lovely coating texture; the mid palate builds to a focused and well defined finish. This has loads of gob smacking fruit and is a pleasure to drink straight off the bat.
This wine is more in the mould of the 2002, with a tighter tannin structure.
The grapes were crushed into and fermented in open top potters, with regular pump overs twice daily to extract flavour, colour and tannin. The grapes were then pressed and the wine was transferred to tank and then racked to barrel for oak maturation.
4 to 6 years
10 months in predominantly old French oak hogsheads
