Handmade Aussie Style!
Welcoming a new estate to the Wine Park family is always a joyous milestone and it becomes all the more momentous when the producers nestle in one of the best red wine regions on the planet. Yes, we’ve got an epic incoming with the boutique Two Hands Wines from South Australia’s Barossa Valley that makes the New World’s finest expression of Shiraz. The journey began with a question contemplated over a bottle of Australian Shiraz: if that is what the world wants, how are we going to give it to them? Emblazoned on their website, this pivotal moment went on to yield 20 vintages of some stunningly good Shiraz vintages. Two Hands Winery is powered by Michael Twelftree and his American partner Tim Hower and their collective objective is a clear as harvest day – showcase the impressive diversity of Aussie Shiraz by sourcing fruit from six of Australia’s finest regions. Their Barossa winery in Marananga has been custom built to harvest small batches of fruit. In fact, the name ‘Two Hands’ is symbolic of the deeply personal attention given to every bunch of grapes that the estate vinifies. Hence every parcel irrespective of size is crushed, fermented and barrel matured separately. This boutique approach shows up on the palate of their staggering range of wines that lay accent on the characteristics of the region and precise vineyard the fruit is picked from.
