Two Hands Harry and Edward's Garden Shiraz 2005
Syrah/Shiraz from South Australia, Australia
The Garden Series is a Super Premium range of six Shiraz from six of the finest Shiraz producing regions in Australia. Harry & Edward's Garden reflects the unique terroir of Langhorne Creek.
Deep purple at the core with a vibrant purple hue.
Aroma Tantalizing glossy red berry fruit laced with aromatic blackberry aromas.
Full-bodied style with mouth-coating tannins backed by powerful red fruits and a cedar vanilla spice; a lingering finish.
Australian Wine Companion - "Complex black fruit flavours accompanied by spice and licorice; fine tannins, and great length. "
International Wine Cellar - "Bright ruby. Spicy red and dark berry aromas complicated by cured tobacco, cedar and dark chocolate. Firm and juicy, with vibrant red fruit flavors and a zesty cracked pepper quality. The spice notes build through the long, energetic finish, which features repeating red berry and pepper elements. I really like the vivacity here."
Wine Spectator - "Silky, supple and generous, this is a big mouthful of sweet plum, currant and creamy vanilla flavors that linger nicely on the long, well-formed finish. Drink now through 2015. 925 cases made."
The Wine Advocate - "The 2005 Shiraz "Harry & Edward’s Garden" comes from Langhorne Creek. It offers a complex but slightly muted bouquet with notes of eucalyptus and black currants. This leads to a full-bodied wine with a plush palate-feel, well-integrated tannins, excellent depth and concentration, and a long, pure finish. It will continue to evolve for several years and can be enjoyed through 2020. "

About South AustraliaView a map of South Australia wineries McLaren Vale, Coonawarra and Barossa Valley, South Australia produces some of the finest red wines of the country, and some say in the world. White wines gain their reputation from the distinctive Rieslings of Clare Valley and Eden Valley.
About AustraliaLike the United States, which is about the same size, Australia's winemaking regions are huddled into one or two pockets of the country. The state of South Australia, which produces about 60% of the country's wine, also has the most wineries and sub-regions, including McLaren Vale, Clare Valley, Coonawarra and Barossa Valley. New South Wales is home to the Hunter Valley, while the smaller, southern state of Victoria is best known for theYarra Valley. Head way west to the very large state of Western Australia and you'll find the tiny region of Margaret River at the southern tip.

Alcohol By Volume GuideMost wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.
