Twelftree Wines

One variety, one vintage, one winemaker with one goal: to highlight pure and differentiated expressions of Grenache based on each wine’s unique terroir

One variety, one vintage, one winemaker with one goal: to highlight pure and differentiated expressions of Grenache based on each wine’s unique terroir. 2020 is an exciting vintage release, this year featuring a limited Blewitt Springs Shiraz. 2020 Twelftree Wines are now pre-released to our Wine Club Members Only.

Twelftree Wines is a limited and exclusive collection of premium handcrafted Grenache, guided from vine to bottle by Michael Twelftree. We source from the finest single vineyard sites in Clare Valley, McLaren Vale and Barossa Valley with the core focus to highlight the provenance of each Grenache parcel.

A revolutionary concept, Twelftree Wines shelves the practice of interjecting winemaking, focusing more on the pre-eminence of unique vineyard sites and viticulture practices.

I really admire what you are doing – it is revolutionary in Australia…
In over thirty years of slavishly pursuing them, this is one of the finest pure Grenache wines I recall.

THE ODD COUPLE

The Odd Couple is a collaboration of two very old and dear friends, David Lloyd from Eldridge Estate in Mornington Peninsula and our Two Hands Proprietor, Michael Twelftree. The two have been friends for over 30 years and when Michael mentioned wanting to make a little Tasmanian Pinot Noir, David jumped at the chance to get on board, and the Odd Couple was born.

From the inaugural vintage 2021 we have two bottlings, one, the best from David’s Estate vineyard in Mornington and another from a mature Coal River Valley vineyard at Middle Tea Tree in Tasmania, both wines were made exactly the same way, so the true identity of both sights can come shining through. The Mornington is more red-fruited with finer tannins, while the Coal River Valley, is deep in colour, dark in fruit profile and the tannins are a little rounder.
