Two Hands Wines Angel's Share Shiraz 2017

Shiraz | Barossa Valley, South Australia,  Australia
Angels' Share refers to the small amount of wine that evaporates from oak barrels during maturation. Medieval winemakers assumed that angels watched over the wines, and that they took their share. Sweet blue fruit notes of fresh blueberry, juniper and mulberry bracketed by a cleanisng pop of acidity and savory tannin. The sweet fruit entry gently yields to savory notes of dried bay leaf, briar, dried herbs and dried rose petals.

AGING

Aged for 12 months in 6% new French puncheons and hogsheads and the remainder in one to six year old French and American oak.

FERMENTATION

The grapes were crushed into and fermented in five, seven and 10 ton open fermenters. During the peak of fermentation the batches received regular pump overs three times daily to extract color, flavor and tannin. The average time on skins was 16 days. Once the parcels were dry, the fermenters were drained off and the skins pressed, with the pressings combined with the free run. After 24 hours the individual batches were racked to barrel where malolactic fermentation proceeded. The final blend was unfined and unfiltered prior to bottling.
