TWO HANDS TASTING, SYDNEY CBD

Two Hands is a winery in Barossa Valley, established just in 1999. For the reasonable youth of this winery, they have done a large range of outstanding wines, with the philosophy “Quality without compromise”. Two hands is a unique winery, reflected in everything from the names of the wines, the way they are made and the way they look. Premium fruit is sourced by Two Hands, from the finest Shiraz growing regions in Australia with the aim to reach the full potential of each vineyard, and even the smallest parcels of fruit are handled and aged separately.

That’s what I like about this winery, is that their whole range is mainly based on Shiraz wine, and the quality of every wine from their lowest to highest in price represent what Shiraz can offer in terms of great taste, mouth feel and length.

Anyway, the tasting was held with Michael (one of the 2 Two Hands wine owners) on 10th June at CBD bar on level 4 (has good function rooms by the way). There were a good number of people there and it was easy to talk with any strangers about the wines. Wines tried (the whole portfolio wasn’t on tasting, as the portfolio is not small). It was only $5 for the whole tasting night, which was for charity. Thanks http://www.winewithoutbs.com.au/ who was there. Wines Tasted Included:

Picture Series:
ANGEL’S SHARE Shiraz, McLaren Vale
GNARLY DUDES Shiraz, Barossa
SEXY BEAST Cabernet, McLaren Vale
Garden Series:

BELLA’S GARDEN Shiraz, Barossa
Single Vineyard Series:
ZIPPY’S BLOCK Shiraz, Barossa
Flagship Wines:
ARES Shiraz.
And their VINTAGE PORT, Barossa.

All wines tasted I really appreciated. The Ares Shiraz I really loved as it was the very best selection of Shiraz, really deep and powerful wine, but that’s the most expensive – will cellar very well. In fact, all the wines can cellar for a couple more years, and up to 10+ years with their high-end wines. All wines did truly reflect their terroir (regional characteristics). Highly recommended!
