Two Hands Aphrodite Cabernet Sauvignon 2016 750ml, Barossa Valley
With only a few barrels selected, Aphrodite is derived from our best low yielding Cabernet Sauvignon vineyard sites and showcases its varietal hallmarks of blackcurrant and mineral. From tiny berries, the concentration of flavours is slowly extracted during fermentation to produce a balanced but fruit driven wine with great ageing potential. This wine has plush dense fruit backed by magnificent mouth-feel and weight, matured in 100% new French oak.
Hitting the palate with lots of dark accented fruits, this Cabernet has notes of blackcurrants, plums and Indian ink, which wash across the palate in waves. Tannins emerge early and remain strong and prominent pulling the wine through to a lovely, long finish. Notes of graphite and woody herbs mesh perfectly with the tannin structure. Pipe smoke, scorched earth and spice box add complexity and create layering through the palate.Two Hands
