Blockbuster wine. Inky and opaque ruby/purple stain. Cocked and loaded aromatics of blackberry, black plum, earthy spice and licorice root. The palate is complicated, layered and chock-full of black fruit highlighted with bing and red cherry, red currant and baker's chocolate and hints of clove. This is bursting with flavor and concentration, but has a beautiful acidity that saves it from being plodding. Needs a good 1-2 years age before it really comes into its own and will continue for at least a decade.

Medium ruby. Intensely floral nose displays fresh rose, violet, lavender and anise notes along with rich dark berries. Thick and very primary, with ripe, almost tarry cassis, blackberry and licorice candy flavors. Finishes with excellent sweetness, verve and cut.

The two hands behind the winery are Michael Twelftree and Richard Mintz, two Adelaide businessmen who began buying grapes from multiple vineyards in 2000 and have enjoyed success ever since. Bella's Garden is a blend of four different Barossa vineyards in 2003. For this vintage, winemaker Matt Wenke used less new oak overall and a higher proportion of French barrels.

The pure, well-balanced 2003 Shiraz Bella's Garden is a blockbuster. Dense ruby/purple with a perfume of smoky oak, bacon fat, black cherries, and sweet cassis, it possesses tremendous fruit, a wonderful texture, and a long, heady finish with sweet tannin. It should drink well for a decade or more.

Two Hands partners Richard Mintz and Michael Twelftree have excelled with their Garden Series, six regional Shiraz bottlings made with purchased grapes. Bella's Garden, from Barossa, is often the best of them. Shiraz for the 2005 Bella's came from nine sites, picked relatively early to preserve freshness and acidity. To better highlight the terroir, the wine receives only 20 percent new French oak, significantly less than most top-tier Barossa Shiraz bottlings.

Powerful. Densely packed and oozing rich cherry, blackberry, licorice, pepper and exotic spice flavors, showing gorgeous balance and even elegance as the flavors persist in a lovely chorus. Has strength and grace, and no intrusive oak. Should last a while. Best from 2007 through 2020.


External Review

Nicely balanced, with subtle suede, cinnamon, plum and berry aromas and flavors. This is supple just to the point of being a bit creamy in the mouth, with a long, velvety finish. Approachable now, but should improve through at least 2012.


External Review

Rich and complex, this is layered with green olive, mint, mineral and licorice around a plump core of black cherry and dark plum flavors, which linger on the intense, beautifully focused finish. Best from 2008 through 2017.
