Two Hands Angels Share Mclaren Vale Shiraz Australia 2011
This wine is very restrained and elegant. Spicy red fruits, subtle char and pepper with underlying charcuterie, grilled meats and soft mocha and vanillin. A burst of juicy red fruits on the early palate that remains throughout. As the fruit builds the mocha notes become more prevalent and finally the firm but fine tannins kick in and hold the palate together, balanced with subtle vanillin oak.
External Reviews for Two Hands Angels Share Mclaren Vale Shiraz Australia
A deep inky red. Nice core of red fruits with a little spicy pepper, mocha and vanilla notes adding much complexity. Delicious!
As black as pomegranate juice, this is draped in the warm spice of tannin, weighty and full. A blast of ripe fruit from Barossa, this is a wine for barbecued ribs.
In November 2011, Two Hands was named in the Wine Spectator's annual Top 100 for the 9th consecutive year, an achievement that has never been equalled by any other winery the world over.
The 2011 Angels' Share Shiraz has a black core with magenta rim. Beautifully perfumed with earthy black fruits, subtle cracked pepper, vanilla and chocolate notes. Very inviting. Impressive burst of flavor with rich dark fruits and spice dominate the long
Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2011 Gnarly Dudes Shiraz gives a lovely mulberry and pepper character with an underlying savory/smoked bacon suggestion. Medium to full-bodied with a good amount of juicy berry and spice flavors and balanced acid, it is softly structured, finishing medium to long with some anise coming through. Drinking well now, it should keep to 2016.
Fresh and vibrant, tight and juicy, with blackberry and floral flavors, persisting onto a jazzy finish. Shows presence and intensity. Drink now through 2018.
Quality without compromise" is the motto of the Two Hands winery and by the incredible response their wines have gotten in the few years they’ve been in operation, it appears that they’re living up to it. Raves from the likes of Harvey Steiman who said "Two Hands has become one of Australia’s powerhouse producers." and Robert Parker who said "These fairly priced, brilliant offerings are full of character and personality." Grapes are sourced from South Australia’s best growing regions as in the case of this Shiraz, all from the McLaren Vale. James Halliday's Wine Companion scored this one 90 points and so did the Wine Spectator who said "Fresh and vibrant, tight and juicy, with blackberry and floral flavors, persisting onto a jazzy finish. Shows presence and intensity. Drink now through 2018.
