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
