Professional Reviews For This Wine


Wine Spectator | Rating: 94

Rich and spicy, layered with ripe blackberry, blueberry and exotic spice flavors that seem to build in intensity from sip to sip. There's plenty of oak flavor, but the fruit is so sumptuous it's not apparent at first. Has density and power with immense polish. 1,500 cases made.

Wine Advocate | Rating: 93

A wine of great intensity as well as full-bodied unctuosity, the 2001 Shiraz Lily's Garden (1,500 cases) reveals sweet, jammy blackberry and cherry fruit infused with notions of new saddle leather, meat, chocolate, and dried herbs. Enormous in the mouth, but incredibly well-balanced, it was aged for 11 months in 100% new American oak.

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."

Wine Varietal: Syrah


While the rest of the world is calling it "Syrah," Australia and South Africa stick to "Shiraz," their name for the same grape. Previously it was thought that the name Shiraz originated from a city in Persia where the Syrah grape was believed to have originated. Recently U.S. and French researchers demystified the name debate when they discovered that the Syrah grape was indigenous to France. Intense, robust and sometimes referred to as "manly," Syrah grows principally in the Northern Rhone. The spicy, peppery grape also grows abundantly in Australia, South Africa, and California, where it takes on a softer, thicker character than its French version. Typical descriptors for Syrah include blackberry, dark chocolate, mint, eucalyptus, smoked meat, black pepper, liquorice, and cloves.
