Two Hands’ Deer in Headlights Shiraz 2007 is a great opportunity to taste a premium and increasingly difficult to get hold of Australian Shiraz.
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."
The intriguingly named ‘Deer in Headlights Shiraz’ is part of Two Hands’ ‘Showroom Series’ – a very limited selection of wines made in tiny quantities. Occasionally, while tasting, we realise that we have something special. That is the moment we look at each other, stunned like Deer in Headlights.
