A pure, flagship Cabernet Sauvignon from a mature single vineyard on Radford Road in the Seppeltsfield sub-district of the Barossa Valley. The Two Hands wineworks at Marananga was designed specifically for small batch production of the very best parcels of fruit. Very occasionally, the Two Hands isolate a block of vines that are earmarked to be handled separately, and vinified into a tremendous Barossa Cabernet. Length of palate and great persistence balanced by excellent depth is the hallmark to the subtle but complex Aphrodite.
A highly specialised Shiraz producer, Two Hands are inspired by a tiny quantity of the most superlative Barossa Cabernet to create an extremely limited small batch wine. Crushed and fermented in five tonne open top fermenters with regular pump overs, three daily during peak fermentation to extract colour and tannin. Following seven to twenty one days of maceration, the dry free run is drained to tank. The skins are then pressed and the pressings transferred to the same tank, the wine is then racked to barrel for malolactic fermentation. Extended maturation for a period of twenty two months in 100% new French oak Taransaud hogsheads. Minimal fining and unfiltered.
TASTING NOTES
Deep, almost impenetrable black in the glass. Fully charged aromas immediately spring from the glass, plum and lavender, mineral and earth, cedar and grilled meats all enveloped around classic cabernet complexity and purity. The palate delivers right from entry with dense and plush red fruit flavours bursting forth amongst polished but fine tannins and refined acidity.

About the Two Hands Winery
The 'two hands' are Michael Twelftree and Richard Mintz who formed the company in 1999 with the clear objective of making the best possible Shiraz
Michael came to the wine industry from a construction background having spent years attending wine tastings and collecting the wines of the world. In 1998, he established his own Australian wine export company and after three successful years of selling other people's wine, he and business partner Richard Mintz decided to start their own operation.
