Wine Spectator Insider on Two Hands Shiraz

The newly released Wine Spectator Insider (Sept. 24, 2014) highlights a trio of releases from Two Hands Wines, with reviews by Harvey Steiman.

Two Hands
Shiraz Eden Valley-Barossa Yacca Block Single Vineyard Menglers Hill 2012
96 points | $120 | 100 cases made | Red
The big, broad-shouldered frame shows glimmers of transparency through a dense thicket of fine tannins, with cherry and raspberry flavors. The finish picks up dried blueberry and mocha notes that don’t quit. All the pieces are in place for a wine that could age magnificently. Best from 2017 through 2025. From Australia.—H.S.

 
Two Hands
Shiraz Barossa Valley Coach House Block Single Vineyard Seppeltsfield Road Greenock 2012
95 points | $127 | 250 cases made | Red
Plush and powerful, with a salvo of black cherry, blackberry, currant and spice box pushing through layers of fine tannins and coming out the other side with exuberant aromatics. The finish loses no momentum carrying these flavors in a big but relatively agile package. Best from 2017 through 2025. From Australia.—H.S.

 
Two Hands
Shiraz Barossa Valley Secret Block Single Vineyard Moppa Hills 2012
95 points | $127 | 250 cases made | Red
Broad and immensely expressive, this is aromatic with blueberry pie, savory grilled sausage and spice notes, coming together into a big yet polished and refined mouthful. The tannins are submerged under the explosive flavors, finishing with abundant meaty, spicy aromas. Best from 2016 through 2025. From Australia.—H.S.
