($60) Medium ruby. Exotic, almost confectionery aromas of cinnamon toast, cherries jubilee and dark chocolate, with subtle oak spice accents; smells like liquid Linzer torte. Supple, smooth and juicy in the mouth, with fresh raspberry and strawberry flavors and silky, sweet tannins. This is neither too heavy nor syrupy and has admirable restraint for its size. The long finish features juicy kirsch and creme de framboise notes. I'd have guessed this to be grenache or possibly a New World pinot noir. . (Vine Street Imports, Philadelphia, PA)

Wow, what a killer Shiraz. Really ripe red fruit against Stilton cheese and white truffles. So concentrated it was almost stinky, but in a wonderful way. Silky mouth feel, just enough tannins for structure. Blown away by this wine and I try to be pretty objective.

About This Producer


The "two hands" are Michael Twelftree and Richard Mintz, who formed the company in 1999 with the clear objective of making the best possible Shiraz-based wines from prized regions within Australia. In 2000 they started with just 17 tons of fruit from the McLaren Vale and Padthaway wine regions. From the beginning the wines were very well received at home and abroad, with a healthy stream of reviews, culminating in 2004 with Robert Parker pronouncing Two Hands as "the finest negociant operation south of the equator."
