Two Hands Bellas Garden Barossa Shiraz 2011
Прекрасное вино, с ярко выражеными ягодными нотками
Delicious but not worth more than $20.
(2007) Still young needs time to open up when opening bottle. Very smooth with slight earthy tones. Excellent berry combinations of cherry and blackberry. Will stay with you for a while and improves slightly upon finishing. Will only get better with a few more years
Inky, dark red-black. Clear and brilliant. Big, intense nose of dark fruits and berries. A bit of oak, vanilla and toasty spice. Sweet blueberries and a hint of anise. A very slight whiff of dill that blew off after a few minutes. Loads of dark fruit accompanied by some spice and cedar notes. Medium to medium long finish with black licorice on the back end. Nice medium tannins, acidity and weight. Overall a very good wine but not as outstanding as I had hoped for.
delicious, dark, Shiraz. A classic fruit bomb, but with complexity on the midpalate and a silky finish. An outstanding wine. No wonder it was the #5 wine of the year from WineSpectator.

The Wine Spectator scored it 95 points saying "Utterly seamless, focused, powerful and elegant, layered with cherry, boysenberry and red plum fruit, revealing glints of coffee, jasmine and cardamom that add extra nuances. Delivers complexity without extra weight. The finish won't quit. Drink now through 2022." Extremely Limited!!
Brilliant violet color. Powerful, deeply pitched aromas of blue fruit preserves, licorice, incense and mocha are lifted by a sexy Indian spice quality. Stains the palate with sweet dark fruit and cocoa flavors that gain energy and lift with aeration. Rich and expansive but lively as well. Closes velvety and very long, with lingering smokiness and smooth, harmonious tannins.
Tasting notes: Colour: Deep dark red with a purple hue Aroma: Lifted notes of blackberry, dark chocolate, baking spices, hung meats, lavender and pipe smoke. Palate: This Shiraz is rich and generous in all proportions. The fruit crashes and cascades across all corners of the palate as only a Barossa Shiraz can. Deep notes of blackberry, chocolate, baking spices and smoked meat are complimented by floral top notes of lavender and potpourri. Lovely and textural across the palate, the gritty, savoury tannins are accentuated by notes of pipe smoke, coal dust and wet earth. A refreshing burst of acidity provides the perfect foil to compliment a long deep finish. Winemaking: De-stemmed, crushed and fermented in three to ten tonne open top fermenters, with regular pump overs (three daily over peak fermentation) to extract colour, flavour and tannins. Average time ‘on skins’ was 14 days before the dry free run was drained to tank and the pressings combined. After 24 hours the wine was then racked to barrel, where malolactic fermentation took place. The bottled wine is unfined and unfiltered. Maturation: Aged for 18 months in French oak hogsheads, with 16% new and the remainder in older oak. - Winery
Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2012 Bella’s Garden Shiraz has a nose of blackberry preserves and warm cassis with hints of menthol, dark chocolate, cardamom and cedar. Full-bodied and richly fruited in the mouth, the abundant fruit is well matched by firm, rounded tannins and refreshing acid before finishing with great length. Drink it now to 2024+.
Amazing pedigree. A Wine Spectator Top 100 selection eight of the last nine years including Top 10 four times. Full bodied, ripe, layered Shiraz sourced from top vineyards in Barossa and vinted with the skill and artistry that has made this winery legendary. The 2010 was 95 points and number 3 on the Wine Spectator Top 100 list and the Wine Advocate gave it the same lofty 95 point score. This 2011 is another bold, lush, densely packed wine with all of the expression and intensity this wine is known for. It's also very limited so don't wait grab some to enjoy now and to cellar for future enjoyment. Florida Weekly just selected it as an ideal Thanksgiving wine. The International Wine Cellar scored it 91 points saying "Dark ruby. Spicy cherry and dark berry aromas are complemented by an exotic Indian spice quality. Chewy, round and nicely concentrated, with sweet, focused black and blue fruit compote flavors lifted by tangy acidity. Appealingly sweet on the youthfully tannic finish, which leaves allspice, blueberry and bitter chocolate notes behind. Shows the best traits of this difficult Barossa vintage and might surprise with its ability to age.". The Wine Front scored it 92+ and Wine Life Magazine scored it 93 saying "Bright ruby color with perfumed notes of red cherry, raspberries and cedar with just a subtle hint of spice behind it. If you think it’s going to be a fruit bomb from the alluring aromas, think again! The fruit is elegantly balanced and framed by the ripe tannins and 17 months in French oak. This vintage feels a little dustier than normal, but even in a difficult, cool and wet vintage, the Bella’s Garden shines."
