Buy Two Hands Shiraz Coach House Block
Vinous 95 points - Inky purple. Heady, exotically perfumed aromas of black and blue fruit liqueur, licorice pastille, sandalwood and vanilla, with smoky Indian spices adding complexity. Broad and deeply concentrated, offering sweet cassis and cherry-vanilla flavors and suggestions of mocha, candied violet and cola. Reaches every corner of the palate and shows superb power and lift on the long, youthfully tannic finish, with the cassis and smoke notes echoing.  (Jul 2014)

Wine Spectator 95 points - 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. (Sep 24 2014)

Two Hands Wines was founded in early 1999 by Michael Twelftree and Richard Mintz. The original aim shared by Michael and Richard was to make the best possible Shiraz-based wines from prized Shiraz growing regions throughout Australia. Their intention was, and still is, to showcase the diversity of Australian Shiraz by highlighting regional characteristics and allowing the fruit to be the primary feature of the wines. Two Hands refers to the very personable approach taken with each parcel of grapes, no matter how big or small. The wines are carefully guided through the viticulture and winemaking process by Michael Twelftree. Two Hands’ first vintage was in 2000, starting with just 17 tonnes of fruit. In 2004 a state-of-the-art winery was built in the picturesque Barossa Valley in South Australia, specifically designed for small batch handling. To maximise the individual regional and varietal characteristics and to allow for greater quality control, every parcel of fruit, no matter how small, is handled separately from crushing through to fermentation and oak maturation. Premium fruit is now sourced from six of the finest Shiraz growing regions in Australia, and Two Hands work closely with their own vineyards and band of growers to ensure the full potential of each vineyard is reached. From the outset, Two Hands set out to be unique. This approach is reflected in everything from the names of the wines through to innovative packaging and, not least, the wines themselves. Two Hands has grown to be a clear market leader and now exports wines to over 24 countries around the world. From small beginnings, the winery has been able to manage its growth organically whilst maintaining an absolute quality focus. ’Quality without compromise’ is a core value that drives all Two Hands decisions so, not surprisingly, the wines have received international acclaim from respected wine critics, with Robert Parker proclaiming Two Hands as ’...the finest negociant operation south of the equator...’ In November 2012, Two Hands was named in the Wine Spectator’s annual Top 100 for the 10th consecutive year, an achievement that has never been equalled by any other winery the world over. - See more at:
