2018 Ares Shiraz
Barossa Valley, Flagship Series, Shiraz
Ares represents the very best shiraz parcels selected each vintage.
Ares was the Greek God of War known for being a dangerous, untamed andviolent force in battle – his sons Phobos (Fear) and Deimos (Terror) and his sister Enyo (Dischord) rode with him on his chariot into battle. Ares at Two Hands is thepinnacle of our Flagship collection and celebrates the most perfect expression of Shiraz we craft each vintage.
Tasting Notes written by Two Hands Proprietor Michael Twelftree
“This year Ares is black on black in colour. The immediate bouquet throws you roastedmeat, pain grillé, dried herbs, both blue and black berries, sage, warm earth and tea leaf.The palate is silky and soft. It caresses your tongue and then rolls straight to the late palate. This pull the magic act of being a big wine in a small wine’s body: It creeps up on youslowly and effortlessly, Man this is a seriously fun ride! It rolls and and rolls along and thetannins never really seem to dissolve or stop; pure silk is the best way to describe it. In theend you’re left searching for the acidity, fruit and tannins as they are all so weldedtogether. Nothing sticks out in this wine, its Barossa Shiraz at it best. This wine has a verylong life ahead of it and it will age effortlessly for 25 year plus. Sit back, pull the cork andenjoy the ride, you will not be disappointed.”
