Two Hands Angels Share Shiraz CONFIRM VINTAGE

Shiraz McLaren Vale South Australia
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.
Available by the dozen

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.
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.
