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!

The 2006 Shiraz "Angel's Share has an expressive perfume of cedar, wood smoke, leather, pencil lead, pepper, and blueberry muffin. Velvety-textured and ripe, it has outstanding depth and length and a harmonious personality. Drink it over the next 6-8 years. Two Hands is a negociant operation run impeccably by Michael Twelftree. It reflects the best that can be sourced from all over South Australia.

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.

(Made from de-classified wine from Lily'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.

The 2004 Shiraz Angel's Share is a hedonistic effort. A deep ruby/purple color is accompanied by a fruit-filled wine with a gorgeously complex nose of lead pencil shavings, charcoal, blackberries, and cassis. Medium to full-bodied, with admirable purity, balance, and the tell-tale opulence and voluptuous texture this estate's wines all seem to possess, it should be enjoyed over the next 7-8 years.

From McLaren Vale, the 2005 Shiraz Angel's Share (the only Two Hands cuvee aged completely in American wood) is a wine of considerable intensity. Its inky/purple color is accompanied by scents of graphite, smoky oak, black currants, chocolate, and cedar. This fabulously rich, full-bodied, voluptuously-styled red should drink well for a decade.

Lithe and focused, with a surprising but appealing root beer note weaving through the blackberry and licorice flavors, which linger gently against firm tannins and tangy acidity on the finish. Has impeccable balance. Drink now through 2011.

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.

Winemaker's Notes:

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.
