Ripe, supple and succulent, offering a juicy mouthful of red berry, blackberry, cherry, clove and white pepper flavors that sail easily over refined tannins, picking up steam on the finish. Best from 2014 through 2020. 1,500 cases made. -HS Opaque purple. Alluring aromas of blueberry, boysenberry, star anise and violets. Lush, broad and sweet but firmly built, with a candied dark fruit quality and mounting florality. Finishes broad, juicy and sweet, with excellent finishing power and lingering spiciness. ** SOLD OUT **

Quality without compromise' is a core value that drives all Two Hands decisions so, not surprisingly, the wines have received international acclaim from respected wine critics, with Robert Parker proclaiming Two Hands as '...the finest negociant operation south of the equator...


Winemaker's Notes:

Lily’s Garden represents our finest barrels of McLaren Vale Shiraz; this is the big sister to our Angels Share Shiraz. As always the wine was matured in seasoned American oak hogsheads, the older barrels offering subtle but complimentary overtones of vanillin spice; enhancing, rather than dominating, the wonderful spicy plum fruit of this wine. Typical of our McLaren Vale style, the 2005 shows delicious distinctive mocha, chocolate and sweet plum characters. Backed by a lush, plush mouthfeel and oodles of juicy ripe fruit laced with an underlying black pepper spice and a silky tight tannin structure . But don’t be deceived this is a serious wine with serious aspirations! Winemaking: Crushed into and fermented in 5-10 tonne open top fermenters with regular pump over; three daily during peak fermentation to extract colour and tannin. Following 7-14 days of maceration the dry free run is drained to tank. The skins are then pressed and the pressings tarnsferred to the same tank, the wine is then racked to barrel. Malolactic fermentation takes place in barrel. Minimal fining and non filtered.
