- ABV 14.2
- Zalto Denk'Art Bordeaux Glass
94 Points - James Halliday
Crushed and fermented in large open fermenters, twice-daily pumpovers, 13 days on skins, 18 months maturation in used French hogsheads and puncheons. Has that black fruit power of the Clare Valley that can seem impenetrable, but this has its best years in front of it. A complex bouquet, the palate locked up with its tar and roses flavour base.
Two Hands Samantha's Garden Shiraz 2018
Clare Valley, Australia
Two Hands Wines have become a beacon for artisan, single vineyard Shiraz in Barossa Valley as well as other premier regions in South Australia. Winning admiration from leading critics around the globe such as Robert Parker, James Halliday and Jancis Robinson demonstrates that the wines are far from one-dimensional in their outstanding balance, structure and elegance. Further testament of this came in 2012 when the estate was named in Wine Spectator’s Top 100 for the 10th consecutive year.
Both from négociant fruit in McLaren Vale, The Two Hands Lily’s Garden and their Bella’s Garden Shiraz are single vineyard expressions of Shiraz combining ripe black fruit wrapped in chocolate and smoky richness. Lily’s Garden is widely regarded as the more approachable of the two when young with Bella’s Garden having the staying power of a premium red Rhone, avoiding the often jammy character found in other examples from the region.
Two Hands were featured more times than any other producer on the Barossa Super 100 Classification, a list of some of the most highly regarded and collectable wines from Barossa drawn up by the Barossa Grape and Association, which saw its inaugural launch in 2019. Two hands have have an incredible eight wines on the list including their My Hands, which is one of only seven wines featured in the above $500 dollars category.
