Good nose of blueberry muffin and shiraz tones, but with a little barnyard. Sugary, syrupy on the palate. Too sweet for me. Read more
Food Pairings for Two Hands Shiraz Mclaren Vale Angels Share
Solid red fruit, with some significant oak and a hint of spice. A great example of a big, thick, chewy Australian red. Inky, like most of Two Hands offerings, and mostly jammy fruit upfront with some slight complexity on the finish. I really liked it, but I am a sucker for this big fruit style. The Two Hands Garden series made me love big reds! Great producer!
Delicious, fruity, peppery, pencil shavings, wonderful nose. Outstanding Shiraz for a good price. Just an outstanding effort and it's young yet. Wait a couple years, it'll knock your socks off.
Good nose of blueberry muffin and shiraz tones, but with a little barnyard. Sugary, syrupy on the palate. Too sweet for me.
Visually it's very deep purple with long legs. On the nose it has strong hints of deep plum, mulberry, chocolate, cherry and licorice with mild notes of vanilla and spice. The taste is dynamic, but not overpowering on the pallet, with full bodied fruit and a great balance of the typical shiraz flavors. Acidy balances out nicely after an hour of decanting. The finish is long and wickedly enjoyable with a strong lingering of pepper and heat.
color: deep blue/black; nose-wild berries & cola; mouth-earth,clove & plum; finish - long & lingering; buy it, age it, drink it share it.
Perfect Australian example that manages to satisfy sans silly name.
External Reviews for Two Hands Shiraz Mclaren Vale Angels Share
In November 2011, Two Hands was named in the Wine Spectator's annual Top 100 for the 9th consecutive year, an achievement that has never been equalled by any other winery the world over.
The 2011 Angels' Share Shiraz has a black core with magenta rim. Beautifully perfumed with earthy black fruits, subtle cracked pepper, vanilla and chocolate notes. Very inviting. Impressive burst of flavor with rich dark fruits and spice dominate the long
A deep inky red. Nice core of red fruits with a little spicy pepper, mocha and vanilla notes adding much complexity. Delicious!
This wine is very restrained and elegant. Spicy red fruits, subtle char and pepper with underlying charcuterie, grilled meats and soft mocha and vanillin. A burst of juicy red fruits on the early palate that remains throughout.
Bright, vibrant, generous and effusive, a seamless wine that bursts with fresh-tasting plum, blackberry and fresh cream flavors, coming together with finesse on the long, expressive finish. Drink now through 2019.
Quality without compromise" is the motto of the Two Hands winery and by the incredible response their wines have gotten in the few years they’ve been in operation, it appears that they’re living up to it. Raves from the likes of Harvey Steiman who said "Two Hands has become one of Australia’s powerhouse producers." and Robert Parker who said "These fairly priced, brilliant offerings are full of character and personality." Grapes are sourced from South Australia’s best growing regions as in the case of this Shiraz, all from the McLaren Vale. The Wine Spactator once again gave it a rave with a 92 point score, they said "Bright, vibrant, generous and effusive, a seamless wine that bursts with fresh-tasting plum, blackberry and fresh cream flavors, coming together with finesse on the long, expressive finish. Drink now through 2019.
The 2006 Shiraz ldquo;Angelrsquo;s Share has an expressive perfume of cedar, wood smoke, leather, pencil lead, pepper, and blueberry muffin. Velvety-textured and ripe, it has outstanding depth and length and a harmonious personality. Drink it over the next 6-8 years. Two Hands is a negociant operation run impeccably by Michael Twelftree. It reflects the best that can be sourced from all over South Australia.
Color: Deep concentrated and black colour. Aroma: The bouquet is classic McLaren Vale of coffee, mocha, cola, chocolate, mulberry, plums and with some lovely spices backed by a little peppermint. Palate: The palate starts out coating and round, a really long drive with loads of plummy fruits. This finishes round, soft and very inviting; its got great personality and drive and is a lot of fun to drink now and will age well into the medium term.
