Buy Two Hands Shiraz Ares
Vinous 95 points - Inky purple. Intense aromas of dark berries, cherry skin, pipe tobacco and graphite, with a jolt of Indian spices adding lift. Completely stains the palate with deep black and blue fruit flavors and shows impressive energy to go along with its power. Bitter chocolate and vanilla notes carry through a satisfyingly long, sweet, subtly tannic finish that shows excellent breadth and focus. This doesn’t want to let up, which is fine with me.  (Jul 2013)

Wine Advocate 93 points - Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2010 Ares offers lovely dried fruits, plum pudding, mincemeat and Chinese five spice notes with an earthy/savory/yeast extract undercurrent. Very full bodied and chock-full of fruit and spice flavour layers, it has a medium to firm level of grainy tannins and crisp acid propping up the weighty fruit, finishing with commendable persistence. Drink this one 2014 to 2024+.  (Feb 2013)

Wine Spectator 97 points - Vivid raspberry, boysenberry, cream and spice flavors mix smoothly as they play against refined tannins in this aristocratic Shiraz, letting its finish play out gracefully. Gripping in its depth and ease of expression. Drink now through 2020. From Australia.H.S. (Apr 17 2013)

Wine maker notes
Each year, every one of our 1,500 barrels of Shiraz is tasted in the search for the very finest cuvee to represent Ares, the pinnacle of our Shiraz production. A statuesque, powerful and deeply flavoured wine that combines elegance and vivacity.

Two Hands Wines was founded in early 1999 by Michael Twelftree and Richard Mintz. The original aim shared by Michael and Richard was to make the best possible Shiraz-based wines from prized Shiraz growing regions throughout Australia. Their intention was, and still is, to showcase the diversity of Australian Shiraz by highlighting regional characteristics and allowing the fruit to be the primary feature of the wines. Two Hands refers to the very personable approach taken with each parcel of grapes, no matter how big or small. The wines are carefully guided through the viticulture and winemaking process by Michael Twelftree. Two Hands’ first vintage was in 2000, starting with just 17 tonnes of fruit. In 2004 a state-of-the-art winery was built in the picturesque Barossa Valley in South Australia, specifically designed for small batch handling. To maximise the individual regional and varietal characteristics and to allow for greater quality control, every parcel of fruit, no matter how small, is handled separately from crushing through to fermentation and oak maturation. Premium fruit is now sourced from six of the finest Shiraz growing regions in Australia, and Two Hands work closely with their own vineyards and band of growers to ensure the full potential of each vineyard is reached. From the outset, Two Hands set out to be unique. This approach is reflected in everything from the names of the wines through to innovative packaging and, not least, the wines themselves. Two Hands has grown to be a clear market leader and now exports wines to over 24 countries around the world. From small beginnings, the winery has been able to manage its growth organically whilst maintaining an absolute quality focus. ’Quality without compromise’ is a core value that drives all Two Hands decisions so, not surprisingly, the wines have received international acclaim from respected wine critics, with Robert Parker proclaiming Two Hands as ’...the finest negociant operation south of the equator...’ In November 2012, Two Hands was named in the Wine Spectator’s annual Top 100 for the 10th consecutive year, an achievement that has never been equalled by any other winery the world over. - See more at:
