At Two Hands we like to experiment with new varietals, which leads us to the most recent release, the Fool's Paradise Barbera from McLaren Vale. The resulting red wine is fresh and lively with clean, savoury notes and a creamy firmness.
CANE CUT SEMILLON
Made from Semillon grapes, the vines had their canes cut when the flavours were ripe and the fruit left to slowly ripen. The result is a powerful and seductive dessert wine of great pleasure.
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
