Two Hands Shiraz Angels Share Mclaren Valerrp30 2009
The 'Angel's Share' is said to be the portion of wine that evaporates from each barrel. This wine has plenty of plush, opulent blackberry, cherry and mulberry fruit. There is a hint of French oak and smooth, ripe tannins. This is for lovers of big fruit-driven shiraz with light tannin.
Tart Fruit, earthy and grainy, harsh tannins.
The 2009 Gnarly Dudes is an absolute stunner. Huge aroma's of black currants, blueberries and dark plums tickle the senses in preparation for the gobs of delicious black fruit that coat the pallet. This wine has lovely balance, the tannins are fine grained but provide a nice structural base, the alcohol is not overly cloying but is very much present and able to provide a full bodied mouth-feel. Enjoy this with some BBQ or chili for a lovely outdoor summer experience!

Bright, vibrant, generous and effusive, a seamless wine that bursts with fresh-tasting plum, blackberry and fresh cream flavors, coming together with finesse on the long, expressive finish. Drink now through 2019.
Inky purple. Intensely perfumed nose offers vibrant dark berry and candied plum aromas, with an exotic twist of floral oils and baking spices. Broad and sweet in the mouth, with juicy blackberry and cassis flavors perked up by slow-building cinnamon and clove spiciness. Finishes with excellent precision and persistence.
Supple, generous and seductive, with lovely blueberry and pomegranate flavors on a velvety frame, offering hints of toast and cream as the finish lingers. Drink now through 2013.
Lithe and supple. A silky red, with a focused beam of blackberry, plum and subtle spice that points right through the long, juicy finish. Best from 2008 through 2013.
The 2010 Gnarly Dudes Shiraz has a deep purple-black color and an intense nose of blackberry preserves, blueberry pie and fruit cake with suggestions of ground cinnamon, cumin seed, fenugreek and mace. Full bodied with a generous amount of ripe, forward berry and spice flavors, the richness is nicely contrasted by crisp acid and a medium to firm level of rounded tannins, finishing long and spicy. Approachable now, it should keep to 2019+.
The 2003 Shiraz Gnarly Dudes' dense ruby/black color is followed by a sweet nose of creme de cassis and blackberries, supple tannin, an opulent attack and mid-palate, and a pure, seamless finish. Drink it over the next 4-5 years.
(Made from de-classified wine from Lilyrsquo;s Garden; aged in American oak, 25% new) Ruby-red. Very pungent, floral aromas of tobacco-laced dark berry and cherry, plus a hint of espresso. Fat, plush and seamless, the inky berry flavors backed up by broad tannins. Finishes sweet and fat, with a sappy, clingy quality. Proprietor Michael Twelftree notes that this drinks better on its own than with food.
