Spread across six different regions, Two Hands' vineyards produce wines that magnify the potential and nuances of each terroir. Each plot is managed independently, from harvesting, through to fermentation, oak ageing and bottling, in order to allow the wine to express its full character and identity. Since its creation, Two Hands has been committed to producing organic wines. "Quality without compromise" is the core value of this visionary company, be it in the way they make their wines or in their choice of names and labels.
Angels' Share 2018 by Two Hands is made from vineyards in McLaren Vale.
The vinification and ageing
Following harvest, the grapes are crushed. Fermentation is accompanied by daily pumping over to ensure optimum extraction. Following a 15-day contact period with the skins, the wine is pressed. After 24 hours, the wine is racked into barrels before malolactic fermentation. The wine is aged in barrels for 14 months, 12% in new American oak barrels and the remainder in 1 to 8 year-old American and French oak barrels.
Angels' Share 2018 by Two Hands is a 100% Shiraz.
