New Twelftree, Two Hands Reviews from James Suckling

Veteran wine critic James Suckling has posted new reviews of Two Hands and Twelftree wines on his website. Among those reviews:

2012 TWELFTREE GRENACHE MATARO BAROSSA VALLEY GREENLOCK-EBENEZER
90 points
Lots of berry and cherry character with hints of lemon undertones. Medium to full body, delicate tannins and a fresh finish. A fruity, light style. Drink now.

2012 TWELFTREE WINES GRENACHE BAROSSA AIRPORT GREENOCK
88 points
From 59-year-old vines planted in the deep, quartz and limestone-studded, grey-red loams of the Greenock subregion in the north-western Barossa. Medium-dark red in the glass with robust aromas of dark plums, cherries and summer berry fruits. There is a fair lick of oak apparent on the nose in this particular wine along with hints of Asian spices, dried mandarin peel, ginger cake and red liquorice. These flavors transpose perfectly onto the palate, which is medium-bodied and displays a ripe, sandy tannin structure showing some grip and form. There is a savory twist on the medium-length finish, which provides fascinating drinking. Drink in 2016.

2013 TWO HANDS BAROSSA GNARLY DUDES
88 points
Slighted muted aromatic profile here though the aromas that can be coaxed from the wine show purity and definition, lying in the dark, black plum spectrum, studded with spices and licorice. The fruit is a little flat on the palate, lacking definition and clarity but the wine provides pleasant drinking nevertheless. Drink now.
