The 2007 Shiraz offers perfume of aniseed, dark chocolate and vanilla followed by spicy characteristics. This is a rich wine with bold flavours and a long sumptuous finish.

Another hedonistic effort from Michael Twelftree and his team. Medium to full-bodied with the Two Hands telltale opulence. There are layers upon layers of fruit, plenty of complexity to please the intellectual drinker and sufficient structure to see this wine through to 2020.

Inky red. Brooding, concentrated aromas of tarry blackberry, blueberry, graphite, pungent flowers and saddle leather. Very sweet but also quite nuanced, with a wild mix of bright red and musky dark fruit flavors joined by intriguing underbrush and mineral tones. Very fresh on the back, which features fine, suave tannins and a lifting note of acidity. This is awfully suave, not to mention complex. A long fellow.
For the first time, we are excited to offer Two Hands’ inaugural vintage of Deer in Headlights, which received glowing reviews from many of the leading critics.

Dense blue/purple-hued 2002 Shiraz Deer in the Headlights is sensational. A spectacular nose of crème de cassis, blackberries, vanilla beans, and espresso is accompanied by a massive yet remarkably elegant Shiraz with tremendous precision and oodles of fruit and glycerine. Stunningly proportioned, fresh, and lively for its size.
A serious food wine that shows what a wonderful marriage these three varietals make if blended with balance in mind! The perfect wine to pair with any dish in the realm of barbecued or grilled red, but also a fantastic companion for earthier dishes such as herb-roasted lamb or duck risotto.

The 2002 Shiraz/Grenache/Mataro Brave Faces possesses a dense ruby/purple color in addition to gorgeous aromatics consisting of blackberries, cherries, licorice, and spice. Plump, full-bodied, velvety-textured, and opulent, it will provide a hedonistic mouthful of Australian red.

The 2005 Shiraz “Deer in the Headlights” offers a fragrant perfume of cedar, leather, lavender, pepper, and blueberry compote. Ripe, round, and deep, the wine is velvety textured with hints of chocolate emerging on the mid-palate. The finish is long and fruit-filled.
