Two Hands

About Two Hands

Founded in 1999 by Michael Twelftree and Richard Mintz, Two Hands stood out as a winery that adopted a Burgundian approach to showcase the “the diversity of Australian Shiraz” from different regions and vineyards at a time when Australian Shiraz took on a rather monotonous style. The year 2000 marked their first vintage and just a few years later, the 2002 and 2003 vintages of their flagship wine, the Ares, earned a magnificent 98 points from Robert Parker, catapulting Two Hands into the league of elite Barossan producers.

In November 2012, Two Hands was named in Wine Spectator's annual Top 100 for the 10th consecutive year, an achievement that has never been equalled by any other winery the world over. 'Quality without compromise' is the core value that drives all Two Hands decisions and, not surprisingly, the wines have received international acclaim from respected wine critics, with Robert Parker proclaiming Two Hands as "the finest negociant operation south of the equator."

Two Hands Ares 2007 (6x75cl)

Wine Spectator (95)

Big and brawny, with a dense core of fresh blueberry, currant, raspberry and dusky spice flavors that sprawl over a layer of prickly tannins. It all melds together on the finish, shooting off sparks of espresso and licorice. The afterburners kick in and this sails off into a long coda. Needs time to soften. Shiraz.

Wine Advocate (94+)

Deep garnet-purple in color and intensely scented of blackberries and black plums with nuances of cedar, black pepper, Indian spices and loam, the medium to full-bodied 2011 Ares Shiraz has a solid core of youthful black fruit and exotic spice flavors with the oak standing out a little as do the firm, grainy tannins at this stage. It finishes with great length. Consider drinking it 2015 to 2024+.

Two Hands Cabernet Sauvignon Aphrodite 2004 (1x75cl)

Wine Advocate (98)

Wine consumers often forget just how brilliant Barossa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon can be as the area is far more renowned for its old vine Shiraz and Grenache, but they should take a look at the 2004 Aphrodite, a 100% Cabernet Sauvignon aged in 100% new Taransaud barrels. This inky/blue/purple-hued, sexy Cabernet offers a glorious perfume of graphite, creme de cassis, smoke, and vanillin. Full-bodied and stunningly rich, with terrific purity, headiness, and laser-like definition as well as precision, this is a remarkable Cabernet Sauvignon that would turn heads even among Bordeaux first growths. It is a 30 year wine that should hit its peak in 4-5 years.

Glass-staining ruby. Pungent, intensely spicy bouquet displays blackcurrant, cherry-cola, cherry skin, tobacco, smoky minerals and dried rose. Surprisingly energetic and fresh on the palate, with a subtle mintiness to the sweet, almost crystallized red and dark berry and bitter cherry flavors. Taut and energetic on the sharply focused finish, leaving a complex trail of fresh red fruits and flowers behind.

Two Hands Eden Valley Shiraz Yacca Block 2018 (12x75cl)

Wine Advocate (98)

Just like last year, this patch of the Eden Valley has turned out a magnificent wine. The 2018 Yacca Block Menglers Hill Shiraz boasts fragrant notes of violets and blueberries spiced with hints of cinnamon, caramel and roasted meat. It's the biggest of the Block wines, labeled at 14.3% alcohol, but despite being full-bodied, comes across as impeccably balanced. It's fleshy and generous, but supple tannins, which turn silky on the lengthy finish, keep the overall impression one of savory elegance.

Unflinchingly in the biggest is best camp; deeply coloured, with luscious, mouthfilling black fruits and dark chocolate; demands that you share the bottle with three others and order a thick rump steak. Not my style, but well-made.

Two Hands My Hands Shiraz 2015 (1x75cl)

Wine Advocate (98)

Composed of Shiraz selected from the Holy Grail Vineyard in Seppeltsfield, the 2015 My Hands is Two Hands's ultra-luxe wine. It spent two years in French oak hogsheads (300-liter barrels) prior to bottling, and then aged in the company cellars until release. Not made every year, the 2015 offers densely packed aromas of creosote, cedar, vanilla, mocha, cola, plums and blackberries. It's a big, full-bodied wine (15.3% alcohol on the label) but doesn't show any heat, the alcohol ably buffered by the wine's admirable concentration. Flavors of maple syrup and roasted meat give the wine a savory balance to the layers of fruit, while the rich, velvety tannins form plush waves of texture on the palate, lingering on the finish. Still youthful, I suspect it will age well for at least 15 years.
