"Composed of Shiraz selected from the Holy Grail Vineyard in Seppeltsfield, the 2015 My Hands is Two Hands’ 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." 98/100 – Joe Czerwinski, Wine Advocate
Founded in 1999 by two friends with a passion for great wine, Two Hands Wines aspires to showcase the diversity of Australian Shiraz. Their aim is to highlight the nuances of fruit expression of the variety from six diverse wine growing regions across South Australia and Victoria. The name Two Hands was inspired by the personal, artisanal and ‘hands-on’ approach to the craft of winemaking and wine growing taken by Michael Twelftree and his team.
