2019 Two Hands Barossa Gnarly Dudes Shiraz
The two hands label is derived by the hands of South Australian businessmen Michael Twelftree and Richard Mintz. Michael laid the foundation of Two Hands through his extensive extensive experience in marketing Australian wine in the US (for other producers). On the principle that if big is good, bigger is better, the style of the wines has been aimed squarely at the palate of the American palate and the American wine critics- especially Robert Parker Jr and Wine Spectators Harvey Steiman. Grapes are sourced from the Barossa Valley (where the business has 15ha of shiraz), McLaren Vale, Clare Valley, Langhorne Creek and Padthaway. The emphasis of the wines is on sweet fruit and soft tannin structure, all signifying the precise marketing strategy of what is a very successful business.
What The Critics Say
90/100 Parker's Wine Advocate, Joe Czerwinski
"As always, sourced from the Barossa Valley, the 2019 Gnarly Dudes Shiraz features darker fruit tones than the McLaren Vale-based Angel's Share. Blackberries and hints of black olive mark the nose, while the medium to full-bodied palate is lined with supple tannins and brambly spice nuances, leading into a softly dusty finish." Drink 2020 - 2024
90/100 The Real Review, Stuart Knox
"Deep ruby and purple colour. Black cherries and mocha aromatics. Cherry fruit drives the palate with layers of aniseed and coca. The tannins give fantastic focus and provide a freshness that keeps you returning. Good length and line 16 OCT 2020." Drink 2020 - 2028
95/100 Halliday's Wine Companion, James Halliday (2018 vintage)
"Everything is right with this wine. The colour is full but clear, the bouquet composed and welcoming, the medium-bodied palate continuing the theme, dark berry fruits doing all the lifting (this is only medium-bodied, in any event), the mouthfeel juicy, the tannins fine-spun, the length exemplary."
