Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
Most 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%.

Winemaker's Notes

The color is Solid black to purple, with an aroma of text book Langhorne Creek spice and purple to red fruits such as blueberry and mulberry. The secondary aromas are just as captivating with Eucalypt, roasted peppers and cedar notes on display. on the Palate it is medium bodied with good compression and texture on the mid palate. Savoury elements and mineral tones are evident with softer tannins balancing the wines structure and fruit density.

Critical Acclaim

"Radically different aroma and flavour profile, with spice, leaf and mint added to the red and black fruits on a relatively firm palate."
93 Points

"Ruby-red. Spicy, mineral-driven red berry aromas are complicated by pungent herbs and fresh flowers. Sappy strawberry and raspberry flavors are strikingly pure and energetic, with a light touch that reminded me of pinot noir. A very suave, fresh wine with excellent finishing energy and lingering minerality."
92 Points

"Brash and bold. A juicy mouthful of molasses-accented plum and blackberry fruit that feels fresher than most Langhorne Creek Shiraz, hovering beautifully over the deft finish. Drink now through 2014."
90 Points

"Like all of the 2006 Garden offerings from Two Hands, this one is full-bodied, creamy and makes a slightly sweet impression on the palate because of its combination of high alcohol (15.2%) and superripe fruit. Cedary, spicy oak accents raspberry and cassis flavors, which persist on the long finish. Drink now–2011."
90 Points
