Beautiful, intense nose of lillies. Thick, meaty mouthfeel with intense bright fruits. Very nice finish on blueberries. A wine is incredible fruity intensity.

Very forward shiraz. Herbaceous,tart and complex, beyond most, caused domestic argument in our house (she knows not wot she says). Do not drink now, cellar and wait 4 years minimum - place off limits to missus (Mrs.). Plan to sacrifice the prodigal son or failing that some surrogate for Thanksgiving 2012 or 2013. Rating now - me (moi?) 94/100, tha wife, 84/100. She knows not ... am I am as a (not the) Man and therefore am terminally misunderstood unless happens to be right .... Am praying for blessed release to drink this in 2012.

Excellent deep inky purple in color. Intense fruit that lingers in the mouth for quite a while. Flavors of raspberry and plum with a light acidic finish fr balance. Great example of Aussie Shiraz!

Two Hands has been a consistently pleasurable wine. This Syrah is a delicious balance of bold currant and coffee with delicate overtones of licorice and chocolate. For the price, a wonderful find!

The bouquet shows concentrated aromas of plums scorched earth licorice mint and chocolate whilst exhibiting trademark McLaren Vale characters of coffee and mocha. The mouth feel and texture is immediate with concentrated flavours of cola plum and blackcurrant along a vibrant and linear backbone. The mid palate shows terrific focus the finish balanced by impeccable tannin and acid structure.

Big, bold and expressive, with some unexpected transparency to the black cherry, raspberry, red plum and Asian spice aromas and flavors, lingering on the open-textured finish. The aftertaste just keeps coming. Drink now through 2015. 6,300 cases made.

The 2007 Shiraz Angel's Share reveals a Cote-Rotie-like nose with its scents of mineral, meat, game and bacon. On the palate there is plenty of sweet, spicy blueberry fruit, silky tannin, and incipient complexity. Give it 1-2 years of additional cell... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. A Syrah wine from South Australia in Australia. 2007 Two Hands Shiraz Angel's Share 750ml

Winemaker's Notes:

COLOUR Deep purple with a black core. AROMA The bouquet shows concentrated aromas of plums, scorched earth, licorice, mint, and chocolate whilst exhibiting trademark McLaren Vale characters of coffee and mocha. PALATE The mouth feel and texture is immediate with concentrated flavours of cola, plum and blackcurrant along a vibrant and linear backbone. The mid palate shows terrific focus, the finish balanced by impeccable tannin and acid structure. WINEMAKING The grapes were crushed into and fermented in open top potters, with regular pump overs three times daily to extract colour and tannin. The grapes were then pressed and the wine was transferred to tank and then racked to barrel of oak maturation. WINE SPECATOR INSIDER - JULY 9, 2008 Big, bold and expressive, with some unexpected transparency to the black cherry, raspberry, red plum and Asian spice aromas and flavors, lingering on the open-textured finish. The aftertaste just keeps coming. Drink now through 2015.—H.S.
