96 Points - Jeb Dunnuck "In the Single Vineyard series, the 2016 Shiraz Yacca Block Single Vineyard comes from the Eden Valley which is just to the west of Barossa. It offers a gorgeously complex bouquet of black raspberries, toasted spices, blackberries, ground pepper, and dried flowers. Deep, opulent, voluptuous, and incredibly texture on the palate, it has no hard edges, fine tannin, and a great finish. It’s my favorite of the Single Vineyard releases and can be drunk anytime over the coming 10-15 years."
96 Points - James Halliday "Perched high up on the hillside of the Eden Valley, this beautifully positioned vineyard is surrounded by ancient Yaccas. Yacca Block sits at the top of Menglers Hill and is a prime example of the role sub-regionality plays in serious winemaking, with this vineyard only a 25 minutes drive from the western ranges of the Barossa Valley. The soil here is a mix of both quartz and ironstone and the vineyard’s high altitude allows for slow ripening that leads to a very soft and elegant shiraz. Grower Joel Mattschoss has been a great supporter and friend of Two Hands, recently starting a business partnership with a new, exciting project titled ‘Love Over Gold’. This vineyard site also supplies Shiraz for Charlie’s Garden, and Riesling for The Boy."
