Two Hands Ares Shiraz 2017 750ml, Barossa Valley
96+ Points !
“The mulberry and vanilla-scented 2017 Ares Shiraz is a full-bodied Barossa Shiraz, with sufficient structure to support at least 15 years of aging. Dark purple and saturated in color, it shows some faint herbal nuances as well—enough to keep the fruit from being monolithic or boring, not enough to be a distraction. The tannins are rich and ripe, imparting a velvety texture on the palate and lingering as a soft dustiness on the long finish.”

The grapes are destemmed/crushed into open fermenters, pumped over, after 15 days on skins the must is part free-run/part pressed part of each included in the blend, matured in French oak (20% new) for 25 months, bottled with minimal fining, no filtration. Wine for Dummies. Even the '17 vintage and only French oak didn't cause somersaults.
