Barrel by Barrel

This tweet from Michael Twelftree brings to mind an interview that Michael did with Sokolin Wines last year. The whole thing is worth reading, but here’s the relevant passage, a demonstration of how Two Hands Wines goes about its business.

Q: The four Flagship wines seem to be primarily from Barossa. Does that imply Barossa creates the strongest examples of these varietals?
 
A: Our Flagships are the best that we can bottle from a given vintage but they do vary. McLaren Vale Shiraz has been increasingly used in our Ares over the past 5 years and our 2011 and 2012 Aphrodite Cabernet Sauvignon has come from McLaren Vale. I taste every barrel (1800+) blind each vintage and the best barrels are the best barrels – they are the ones that will represent the Flagship range.
