Vinous 94 points - Dark ruby. Fragrant and ripe, with potent raspberry preserve, cherry-vanilla and rose pastille aromas and a hint of Asian spices. Vibrant, deeply concentrated red berry and cherry flavors display impressive lift and drive. This has lovely vivacity for such a rich wine (15.4% alcohol), finishing with excellent clarity and spicy thrust.  (Jul 2011)

Wine Spectator 93 points - Supple, polished and vibrant, with black cherry and dried strawberry flavors, hinting at mint, green olive and black tea as the finish lingers enticingly against refined tannins. Grenache. Drink now through 2020.H.S. (May 30 2012)

Wine maker notes
Made in very small volumes in only the best years for Grenache, Aerope is sourced from older vineyards in the western ranges of the Barossa Valley. The wine displays a lifted multi-dimensional bouquet with a rich purity of fruit on the palate, backed by soft and caressing tannins.

Producer
Two Hands Wines was founded in early 1999 by Michael Twelftree and Richard Mintz. The original aim shared by Michael and Richard was to make the best possible Shiraz-based wines from prized Shiraz growing regions throughout Australia. Their intention was, and still is, to showcase the diversity of Australian Shiraz by highlighting regional characteristics and allowing the fruit to be the primary feature of the wines. 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. Two Hands’ first vintage was in 2000, starting with just 17 tonnes of fruit. In 2004 a state-of-the-art winery was built in the picturesque Barossa Valley in South Australia, specifically designed for small batch handling. To maximise the individual regional and varietal characteristics and to allow for greater quality control, every parcel of fruit, no matter how small, is handled separately from crushing through to fermentation and oak maturation. Premium fruit is now sourced from six of the finest Shiraz growing regions in Australia, and Two Hands work closely with their own vineyards and band of growers to ensure the full potential of each vineyard is reached. From the outset, Two Hands set out to be unique. This approach is reflected in everything from the names of the wines through to innovative packaging and, not least, the wines themselves. Two Hands has grown to be a clear market leader and now exports wines to over 24 countries around the world. From small beginnings, the winery has been able to manage its growth organically whilst maintaining an absolute quality focus. ’Quality without compromise’ is a core value that drives all Two Hands decisions so, not surprisingly, the wines have received international acclaim from respected wine critics, with Robert Parker proclaiming Two Hands as ’...the finest negociant operation south of the equator...’ 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. - See more at: http://www.twohandswines.com/about-us/history#sthash.zMpyhDkZ.dpuf
