Overview

Grape

Cabernet Sauvignon

Its Origins

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.

What The Critics Say

90/100 Parker's Wine Advocate, Joe Czerwinski

"The 2018 Sexy Beast Cabernet Sauvignon features classy hints of pencil shavings, mint and cassis. It shows appropriate varietal restraint on the palate, gliding along in a streamlined, focused manner without being tight or ungenerous. It's medium-bodied and silky yet firm, with a long finish." Drink 2019 - 2027

90/100 The Wine Front, Gary Walsh

"Rich and thick, chocolate, pencil, cassis and blueberry pie. A mass of supple tannin, minty black fruit, more chocolate, a little bit of earth, generosity of sweet flavour, slightly warm (people ask me how hot it is?) but nothing too intrusive, and a plump and plum juice finish of solid length, some bitter chocolate and herb in the aftertaste. It’s kind of obvious, but kind of lovable too." Drink 2020 - 2025

93/100 Halliday's Wine Companion, Ned Goodwin (2017 vintage)

"McLaren Vale cabernet is an outlier. The semi-arid maritime region boasts a distinct Mediterranean climate out of synch, at least supposedly, with cab's maturation patterns. And yet there is always a je ne sais quoi freshness amidst the inky warmth. There are inevitably strong varietal reference points from the black currant, spearmint and sage. A warmer black olive and salt bush note, too, rears amidst it all, but the result is satisfying, rich and nourishing, at its best. This is no exception."
