Twelftree Wines 2011 Grenache/Mataro

Twelftree Wines 2011 Grenache/Mataro

This is a side project for Michael Twelftree, the owner of Australia’s Two Hands Winery, and a fantastic find in the PLCB system.

The wine is sourced from two old vineyards in Barossa: Gomersal and Ebenezer, and it’s lineage shows. It’s a big bruiser of a wine, just like one would expect from Barossa, and as concentrated in it’s flavors as one would expect from any luxury-brand wine. That alone should earn it well-deserved fans.

It is also quite beautiful and complex, as well. with layers of spice, game, ocean breeze and flowers turning this bruiser into a drunken poet.
