"Quality without compromise" is the motto of the Two Hands winery and by the incredible response their wines have gotten in the few years they’ve been in operation, it appears that they’re living up to it. Raves from the likes of Harvey Steiman who said "Two Hands has become one of Australia’s powerhouse producers." and Robert Parker who said "These fairly priced, brilliant offerings are full of character and personality." Grapes are sourced from South Australia’s best growing regions as in the case of this Shiraz, all from the McLaren Vale. James Halliday in his Australian Wine Companion scored this 94 points and Vinous scored it 91 saying "Bright violet color. Expansive scents of blueberry, cherry compote, pipe tobacco and licorice, with a peppery nuance adding urgency. Sappy and appealingly sweet, offering plush black and blue fruit flavors lifted and brightened by a spine of juicy acidity. Fleshy and concentrated but energetic as well, with velvety tannins shaping the long, dark fruit-driven finish."
