Consistent with the previous vintage. Very good quality delivered from Two Hands again. This vintage may be a tad riper, but it still balances out the two key elements needed for Cab to be in check – acid is high, fruit concentration is on point. Some chocolatey notes play around on the palate. Tannins exist, but don’t intrude. Good stuff and really good value.
Two Hands was established in the summer of 1999 with the aim of making the best possible Shiraz-based wines from prized growing regions throughout Australia. The intention was, and still is, to showcase the diversity of Australian Shiraz by highlighting regional characteristics and allowing the fruit to be the primary feature of the wines. ‘Two Hands’ refers to the very personable approach taken with each parcel of grapes, no matter how big or small. The wines are carefully guided through the viticulture and winemaking process by Proprietor and Managing Director, Michael Twelftree and his dedicated team.
