Aerope is the third wine in the Two Hands Flagship line up, representing the very best Grenache made by Two Hands. Aerope was selected from a few exceptional barrels of Grenache that came from an 80 year old dry grown vineyard on Radford Road in the Barossa sub district of Greenock.

Bright red with subtle brick red hues

Fragrant and inviting, full of red berries, bright Asian spice, lavendar, savory charcuterie characters with great steely minerality.
Taste
Extremely attractive entry of red berries, lavendar and creamy rosewater. The juicy mid palate tightens up to the late palate finishing with fine tannins and mouth watering charcuterie and savory/slight minty notes.
