Two Hands Shiraz Barossa Valley Bad Impersonator Single Vineyard 2007
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 **Add winemaker's notes
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.

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.
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.
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." On Sale!!
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.
