Winemaker's Notes:

The 2010 Max's Garden Shiraz is a rich red color. Aromas of cherries, spice, raspberries, sandalwood and cedar. Smoky, very perfumed and elegant. This Shiraz is very energetic on the entry with vibrant raspberries and spice. Juicy through the whole palate with subtle earthy/graphite on the late palate, all supported by a good acid framework.

About Two Hands Wines:

Two Hands Wines was founded in 1999 by Michael Twelftree and Richard Mintz. Their aim was, and still is, to produce the best possible wines from prized Shiraz growng regions throughout Australia. "Quality without compromise" is a core value that drives all decisions from fruit and oak selection to packaging and promotion. Winemaker Matt Wenk has been with Two Hands since 2002 and, together with Michael Twelftree, oversees every aspect of the winemaking process. Their flagship Shiraz, Ares, represents the very best parcels in each vintage and is sselected through an intense barrel classification process. This blend of Barossa Valley and McLaren Vale Shiraz displays the incredible depth of flavor and balance that are hallmarks of this wine.
