Flagship Series

Our Flagship Series represent the very finest varietal selections from each vintage.

With a strong commitment to the philosophy of ‘quality without compromise’, Two Hands Wines use a strict classification process to ensure that only the best barrels each vintage are deemed worthy of being bottled as a Flagship Series wine.

Six months after vintage, a selection of barrels from our best parcels of fruit are carefully assessed by Chief Winemaker Richard Langford, looking for the finest cuvee and given a classification grade associated with its place in the Two Hands portfolio. With this focus on detail, it means only the best barrels make it through and quality is maintained even in the toughest vintages, albeit at lower quantities.

Each year, only a handful of barrels come in at the top of the class, scoring an A+; these barrels become wines in our Flagship Series. These ultra-premium wines represent the very finest varietal selections from each vintage.

Named after the Greek gods of ancient myth with mighty Ares at the head, these Flagship Series wines exhibit exceptional aging ability and structure and will mature for many years in your cellar.

This full day experience takes you to our three estate vineyards located across the Eden and Barossa valleys in a bespoke Land Rover Defender, culminating in a private two-course lunch and Flagship tasting in our ‘Bakehouse cellar’.

A vintage of extremes where the vineyard team rose to the occasion


“After 20 years I can tell from the vine the potential of a block, but it’s a huge achievement when you see the quality from the vineyard coming through into the finished wines.” – MT

A fast, furious vintage > A dry growing season > Clonal diversity at Holy Grail a highlight > The vintage lasted just 6 weeks!


Spotlight On

Ares Shiraz

Shiraz is at the heart of the Two Hands story and our vineyard selections give us access to some of the greatest parcels of Shiraz grapes in the country. Each year, every one of the 1,500 barrels of Shiraz is tasted in the search for the very finest cuvée to represent Ares, the pinnacle of our Shiraz production.

The handful of barrels that make it through are matured for 24 months in new and one-year-old French oak, and retasted again and again to ensure only the best make the final blend. A statuesque, powerful and deeply flavoured wine that combines elegance and vivacity.



Anteros Mataro

Inspired by the myths of ancient Greece the Flagship Series is headed by Ares our Flagship Shiraz, the bold, passionate and strong God of War. ‘Anteros’ was the son of Ares and Aphrodite and was the god of requited love and also the punisher of those who scorn love and the advances of others. This is the second release of our Anteros, the previous vintage was 2008 where the wine has aged superbly.




Our wines at Two Hands are crafted to last. There is nothing quite like the appreciation of opening a treasured gem that has been ageing gracefully in your cellar and savouring the development of the aromas and palate over the months and years.

We make the effort each vintage to carefully store a small quantity of each wine we produce. Opening an aged bottle of wine to celebrate your anniversary, birthday or special day makes for a truly memorable experience.
