Estate Notes

Two Hands' Barney’s Block Shiraz 2009 was purchased in its original wooden case.

Two hands was established by Michael Twelftree and Richard Mintz in 1999 in order to make the best possible Shiraz in Australia; and in just ten years their eclectically named wines have consistently won rave reviews. In fact, Two Hands Wines were listed in Wine Spectator's Top 100 for the last five years and Robert Parker further heaped the praise on, pronouncing Two Hands as "the finest negociant operation south of the equator."

Reviews

“TDeep purple-black in color, the 2009 “Barney’s Block” Shiraz is profoundly scented of warm blackberries and blueberry preserve over nuances of yeast extract, black olives, cloves, bacon fat and cedar. Very full bodied and powerful in the mouth, the palate is packed with primary blackberry and meaty / earthy flavors with ample support from a medium to firm level of grainy tannins and enlivening acid, finishing long with some baking spices coming through.” eRobertParker.com

“Broad, ripe and plush, with a juicy balance to the blueberry, dark plum and currant flavors, finishing with freshness and hints of chai tea spices. This has tremendous stature with poise.” Wine Spectator
