RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.
Food Pairings for Two Hands Shiraz Barossa Valley Bad Impersonator Single Vineyard
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 Barossa Valley Bad Impersonator Single Vineyard
Deep black in the glass. A very obvious inky nose of blueberries, minerals, coal and dark chocolate, backed by secondary notes of daffodil and Asian spices with a thread of mint. Starting out with an even float of fruit across the palate, the mouth-feel stays soft, long and elegant throughout. This is a surprising wine that sits on an elegant core of ripe and concentrated fruit. The tannins are soft and fleshy and well balanced with the fruit. - Winery ** Only 3 in Stock **

The 2005 Shiraz “Bad Impersonator” 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.
From 40-year-old vines, the 2003 Shiraz Bad Impersonator reveals a French-like, graceful, elegant personality as well as plenty of concentration and intensity. Offering up notes of blackberries, dried herbs, subtle sweet vanillin, and notions of blueberries and roasted meats, this complex, ripe, medium to full-bodied Shiraz is satisfying both hedonistically and intellectually. Enjoy it over the next decade.
Dark ruby. Smoky, graphite-accented blackberry and cassis aromas, with suave toasty oak adding complexity. Broad, fleshy and sweet, with deep blueberry and plum flavors gently lifted by slow-mounting acidity. Gains brightness on the finish, which features impressive sweetness allied with subtle mineral tones.
Dense and spicy, with a spike of black pepper and red chili on the finish to balance the black cherry fruit. Has fine tannins, but this needs time to come together. Best after 2008.
