A Q&A With Michael Twelftree
What sets the extraordinary apart from the ordinary when it comes to wine? In a new Q&A on the Sokolin blog, Michael Twelftree offers his view, and in the process gives insight into the Two Hands winemaking approach:
To me great wine is all about texture, mouthfeel, tannin density and palate presence. I don’t ever get caught up with aromas and certain flavor profiles. I believe that wine must evolve and if they are well made, the components will change over time. I think getting too caught up in descriptors is counter productive, as it is impossible to make a three dimensional tasting experience into one dimensional tasting note or comment.
