Description

The Single Vineyard series begins with the 2006 Shiraz Zippy’s Block Roennfeldt Road, located in the Marananga sub-district of Barossa, an address made famous by Greenock Creek Vineyards and Cellar. A glass-coating opaque purple color, it exhibits a complex, expressive nose of pain grille, spice box, scorched earth, plum, and blueberry. This is followed by a mouth-filling, voluminous Shiraz with opulent blue and black fruits, savory flavors, and an exceptionally long, silky finish. Cellar it for five years and drink it from 2013 to 2026.- WA97

The Winery

Two Hands is a wine producer specializing in red wines made from Shiraz in a variety of regions across Australia. It was founded in 1999 by Michael Twelftree and Richard Mintz as a negociánt-style business in the Barossa Valley. Now, the company makes a range of wines from McLaren Vale, Langhorne Creek, the Barossa Valley and the Clare Valley in South Australia, and Heathcote in Victoria.

The founders thought that by buying fruit in from around the country, they would be able to maintain quality better than if they owned their own vineyards. As well as Shiraz, Two Hands sources Grenache, Mataro, Roussanne, Semillon, Sauvignon Blanc and Cabernet Sauvignon from its preferred regions, and brings it all to the winery in Barossa, which was built in 2004.

The flagship Garden Series consists of a top expression of Shiraz from each of Two Hands' key regions. These six wines are vinified and aged in oak separately by lot and then blended. Two Hands also make a range of more approachable red and white wines, and a collection named for one of the brand's founders, Twelftree. Two Hands has also made a collaborative wine called Two Worlds blending Australian Shiraz with Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa Valley. - Information from Wine Searcher
