TN : Two Hands Gnarly Dudes Shiraz 2008, Barossa Valley, Australia

The many parcels making up this wine were crushed into and fermented in open top vessels, with regular pump overs three times daily to extract flavours, colour and tannins. The batches were then drained and pressed to tank and then racked to barrel for oak maturation where the wine spent twelve months in hogsheads (12% new French oak and the balance in one to four year old French oak). The pH is 3.38 and the acidity is 6.9. The winemaker was Matthew Wenk.

This wine was sealed with a screwcap.

Two hands are Michael Twelftree and Richard Mintz who formed the company in 1999. Michael Twelftree, initially from a construction background, spent a number of years exporting Australian wine to the USA and Asia. Richard Mintz, a chartered accountant, was formerly CEO of one of Australia's leading cooperages in the Barossa Valley.

In this modern day and age, accessing your inventory lists and order history online is imperative when doing business with any temperature controlled warehouse company. No business can be internationally successful without the use of online and computer reporting, since much of the work is shared between several different offices, and sometimes even different states. The temperature controlled warehouse experts at International Warehouse Group offer a full-service warehouse business model which takes care of all shipping and packing needs. They have systems in place to support every step of the way, from receiving to pick tickets, and then on to liaison with UPS, FedEx, and the USPS for on time order fulfillment! This isnt your average temperature controlled warehouse company! This has meant a change in legislation and it is now a legal requirement that each driver must obtain a legitimate licence.
