Two Hands Shiraz Bad Impers 2005
A very good, if atypical Barossa Shiraz. Blueberry and bitter chocolate spar on the nose, with some nice spice notes and earthy leather underneath it all. This one opens up slowly, and is actually drinking better on day two (vacuum pumped). Balanced on the palate, with seamless tannins, hinting at an elegance that never quite fully develops. I'm not a big Shiraz drinker, but wines like this make me believe in the promise of Australia.
External Reviews for Two Hands Shiraz Bad Impers
The 2005 Shiraz andldquo;Bad Impersonatorandrdquo; was sourced from a single vineyard and aged in French oak, 20% new. It offers a bouquet of cedar, spice box, pepper, clove, and blueberry. This leads to a layered wine with excellent depth, silky tannins, fine balance and even some elegance. Drink this lengthy, fruit-filled wine over the next 6 years.
Opaque ruby. Superripe blackberry, dark cherry, espresso, dark chocolate and heady oak spices on the nose. Almost port-like in weight and texture, with sweet flavors of dark berries, sappy mulberry and clove. An outsized wine that will hold great appeal for fans of the genre.
91 Points - Wine SpectatorFirm and upstanding, a solidly built yet lithe wine packed with smoky, peppery blackberry and cherry flavors, persisting nicely as the finish revs up. .500 cases imported.
Sourced from select vineyards in the Barossa Valley, the grapes for this wine were crushed and fermented in open top fermenters with regular pump overs, 3 times daily during peak fermentation to extract color and tannin. Following 7 to 21 days of maceration the wine was racked to barrel. Malolactic fermentation took place in barrel where it aged 14 months in 26% new French oak hogsheads. Bottled with minimal fining and no filtration it's made to age 5-10 years or more. James Haliday of the Australian Wine Companion scored it 94 points saying "Spotlessly clean aromas; abundant ripe, fleshy black fruits in a plum and blackberry spectrum; soft tannins, good oak."
