Two Hands Gnarly Dudes (750ml)
The “two hands” are Michael Twelftree and Richard Mintz who formed the company in 1999 with the clear objective of making the best possible Shiraz based wines from prized Shiraz producing regions within Australia. Quality without compromise is central to the Two Hands philosophy, driving all the decisions from fruit and oak selection to packaging and promotion.
Gnarly refers to the gnarled old Shiraz vines this wine comes from. Pronounced aromas of bright red berries, plums, baking spices and chocolate intermingle with freshly cut flowers and cedar notes. The palate is focused with lively black berries, black pepper and bitter chocolate. Bright acidity and fine tannins give this wine a focus without it it feeling overly heavy. The palate gives up a generous hit of black cherry and liquorice. With great complexity, heavy tannins and a brilliant long length, this is a wine that will greatly reward a few years in the cellar.
This wine was made for the BBQ- delicious, full-bodied and incredible expression of Australian Shiraz! – Jenny Gammon
