2013 Max’s Garden Scores 93 Points in Wine Spectator
The latest Wine Spectator Insider features two great reviews for Two Hands Wines, including a 93-point score for Max’s Garden, the winery’s Shiraz from Heathcote in Victoria.
Shiraz Heathcote Max’s Garden 2013
93 points | $65 | 75 cases made | Red
Luscious, with generous, pure plum and black cherry flavors that
melt away to showcase details of cinnamon, black licorice, violet
and white pepper. The velvety finish lingers enticingly. Drink now
through 2030.—Maryann Worobiec
Shiraz Clare Valley Fields of Joy 2014
90 points | $30 | 800 cases made | Red
There’s an air of elegance to the tangy cherry and wild raspberry
flavors, with details of anise, espresso and clove. Polished and
supple on the finish. Drink now through 2030.—M.W.
Heathcote is the region farthest afield from Two Hands’ home base, some 400 miles southeast of the Barossa Valley and about an hour north of Melbourne. Although some producers reach for a big, jammy style in Heathcote, Two Hands believes the region is meant to produce wines with an earthy texture with lifted spice and a well delineated fruit profile—wines with an elegant framework that complements the Garden Series for their distinctiveness.
