The idea for Two Hands was born in September 1999 when founders Michael Twelftree and Richard Mintz sat at a friend’s engagement party and decided it was time to make their own wine and market it on the world stage.
The 'Angels' Share' refers to the small amount of wine that evaporates from oak barrels during maturation - medieval winemakers assumed that angels watched over their wines and that they took their share. The Two Hands Angels' Share is a rich and powerful shiraz that bursts with dark fruit flavours. Whilst drinking excellently now, it can easily cellar for ten years or more. Heavenly.
The winery writes "The rich and powerful fruits burst out of the gate, setting up the palate. This initial burst creates a wave of juice and long fruits which are slowly reined in by the broad tannins. This wine is a little bit too easy to drink, it announces itself and then gives you a whole hearted effort, the creaminess of the fruit holds the succulent mouthfeel and the tannins have a lovely brightness to the effortless finish. This is a wine that will offer loads of immediate pleasure and will also age for the moderate term under optimal cellaring conditions."
