Two Hands Wines was founded in early 1999 by Michael Twelftree and Richard Mintz. 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. 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.
Deep dark red with an inviting array of lovely violets, red fruits, ash and minerality, with a subtle Cabernet Sauvignon trademark herbal thread. The elegance on the nose reflects the restraint on the palate. Red fruits, spice and ash creating a long, even palate supported by loads of fine tannins giving this wine tightness and great balance.
With: Braise shoulder of lamb, green olives & feta
