Two Hands Shiraz Heathcote Max's Garden 2010
COLOR Rich red AROMA Cherries, spice, raspberries, sandalwood and cedar. Smoky, very perfumed and elegant. TASTE Very energetic on the entry with vibrant raspberries and spice. Juicy through the whole palate with subtle earthy/graphite on the late palate, all supported by a good acid framework. Length/Type of Fermentation: Three days cold macerating prior to fermentation in five and ten tonne open top fermenters with regular pump overs; three daily during peak fermentation to extract colour and tannin. Following 15 days of maceration the dry free run was drained to tank and the skins pressed to the same tank. After 24 hours, the wine was racked to barrel, where malolactic fermentation took place. Minimal fining and filtration. Length/Type of Aging: 20 months in French hogsheads of which 25% were new.
Three and a half glasses
External Reviews for Two Hands Shiraz Heathcote Max's Garden
Inky purple. Spicy black cherry, blackcurrant, tar, licorice and potpourri on the nose, all lifted by a mineral topnote. Big and rich but juicy, offering gently sweet dark berry flavors and notes of candied violet and spicecake. Impressively broad and focused, with good extract and building notes of tangy berry skin and herbs. Finishes with gentle tannins and refreshing energy. Dense yet juicy with acidity that balances against ripe cherry and raspberry flavors, fitting in mineral notes as the finish lingers against fine tannins. Best from 2011 through 2017. 550 cases made. -HS The 2007 Shiraz Max's Garden comes from Heathcote. A glass-coating opaque purple color, the nose offers up violets, cigar box, black currant, and blueberry leading to a restrained, relatively elegant Shiraz with the structure to evolve for 2-3 years. Drink it from 2011 to 2019. ** SOLD OUT **
