Its Origins

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

93/100 The Wine Front, Gary Walsh (2019 vintage)

"El Duderino. Blackberry, liquorice and dried mint, a bit of the old earth and spice. Dark fruit flavour, good balance and especially, a solid sort of sessionability here for a Barossa Shiraz, some char and chew to tannin, and a long but slightly gummy finish. Nice one."

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."
