After the crushing of grapes and completion of ferments, most red wines are filled to oak, it is here that the ageing barrels must be topped up from time to time, as a portion of the stocks evaporate into thin air. It's known in winemaking parlance as angel's share. A wine of great personality, personable and charismatic, the very best of McLaren Vale in every way, Angels Share articulates the more vivaciously ripe and upfront style of Aussie Shiraz.
Two Hands are innovative and unafraid to think outside the square. Two Hands concentrate their efforts on sourcing the best fruit from the finest Shiraz vineyards in Australia, working closely with the growers. Grapes are crushed into large, open top fermenters. During the peak of activity, batches receive regular pumpovers thrice daily for the extraction of colour, flavour and tannin. After sixteen days on skins, the free runs are drained off, skins are pressed and returned. After a day's settling the wine is racked to barrel for malolactic. Matured twelve months in a selection of seasoned and new French and American oak puncheons and hogsheads. Angel's Share is bottled without fining or filtration.
TASTING NOTES
Deep, concentrated black with purple rim. Big McLaren Vale nose of ripe fruits, blackcurrants and cherry notes, freshly ground coffee, dark chocolates and mint. A layered palate, fresh mouthfeel, the tannins are quite firm, balanced by good weight of fleshy fruit. The mid palate shows terrific focus, the finish balanced by impeccable tannin and acid structure, resolving on a note of excellence, precision and persistence.

About 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.
