Score:95

Fermented with close to 30% whole cluster and aged for 13 months in older French hogsheads, the 2009 Two Hands Grenache Aerope has intense, savory aromatics of ground pepper, cocoa powder, and leather that are rounded out by mainly ripe red berry and kirsch like notes. Despite the savory, dry aromatic profile, this explodes on the palate with a juicy burst of fruit, solid texture, good acidity, and a clean, long finish. While this should have a decade or longer of prime drinking, I don’t see any reason to hold off either.

Region

Situated in South Australia, 60 kilometres northwest of Adelaide, lies the Barossa Valley which has been producing wine since 1842 and these days is recognised as Australia’s quintessential wine region. The hot climate mixed with the ironstone and sandstone soil in the valley, makes excellent growing conditions for grapes and in particular, Shiraz (or Syrah) which classically is full bodied with earthy and spicy notes. Over the last 15 years there has also been an increased interest in the other red Rhone varietals Grenache and Mourvedre. The non-irrigated old vineyards on the cooler west side of the valley are the most treasured and provide fruit for Australia’s most famous wine, Penfolds Grange among many other top-quality bottlings.
