Estate Notes

Two Hands' My Hands Shiraz is the very best Shiraz that Two Hands Wines has to offer, a limited production cuvee that even surpasses the flagship series. The 2005 vintage was rated 97-100 points by eRobertParker.com.

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. Bella’s Garden is the most awarded wine in the Two Hands’ portfolio, helping Two Hands to reach the momentous achievement of scoring a place in the Wine Spectator Top 100 Wines for ten years in a row, the only winery in the world to ever achieve this feat.

This outstanding achievement is accompanied by consistently excellent reviews and score ratings from some of the most acclaimed critics across the globe. Robert Parker further heaped the praise on, pronouncing Two Hands as "the finest negociant operation south of the equator."

Reviews

“There are three “icon” wines in the portfolio.There are three barrels of the 2005 My Hands, a Shiraz cuvee sourced from Marananga, and aged for 38 months in new wood. A glass-coating purple/black color, it shows off a brooding bouquet of balsam wood, truffle, earth notes, violets, blueberry, and blackberry. On the palate the oak has been fully integrated and the wine is virtually seamless. This voluptuous, sexy effort will continue to blossom for 6-8 years and drink well through 2030. It is for hedonists only.” eRobertParker.com

“A deep but initially impenetrable black hole of a nose opens slowly to reveal a surreal bouquet of Asian-spiced boysenberry, black raspberry, candied cherry, potpourri and dusty minerals. Then surprisingly graceful on the palate, offering suave red and dark berry flavors, tangy mineral lift and grip, and silky tannins. Finishes with palate-staining anise and mocha notes. This is more about spine and structure than sheer power, and it's still a baby.” Josh Reynolds
