Winemaker Notes

Deep, dark red with a black core and purple hue. Deep set aromas of blackberry, bramble, black pepper, dried flower, Indian ink, and baking spices. Straight away this wine hits you with a wall of flavour. Crashing and caressing the breadth of the palate, it ratchets up a gear as it runs the length of the palate. Just as the wine seems to start losing control, a beautiful line of acidity harnesses the power, tightens up and commands authority. A veil of sheer elegance creeps though the palate. The tannins start early and build momentum drawing the wine through to an extremely long and detailed finish. 

Critical Acclaim

JD 94
Jeb Dunnuck
A wine that always seems to deliver, the 2016 Shiraz Bella's Garden comes from the Barossa Valley and saw a touch of whole clusters and 18 months in roughly 20% new French oak. Blueberries, black raspberries, vanilla bean, spice, and toasted bread notes all flow to a full-bodied, ripe, opulent Shiraz that has sweet tannin, a balanced, clean profile, and a great finish. It’s a knockout bottle of wine to enjoy over the coming 5-7 years.
WS 93
Wine Spectator
Complex, opening with a distinctive floral note of dried lavender that adds an aromatic lift to the polished blackberry, cherry and black pepper flavors. Dark, dense and concentrated at the core. Details of spice, vanilla and clove mingle on the finish. Drink now through 2028. 5,500 cases made.
RP 92
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The 2016 Shiraz Bella's Garden, from the winery's "home turf" in the Barossa Valley, features luscious aromas of mixed berries, vanilla and just enough meaty notes to keep the wine from being overly fruit-driven. Instead, it's savory and complex, with cedar framing the ample fruit, and it has fine-grained, silky tannins and a long, crisp finish. Nicely done.

JS 90
James Suckling
A very essence-like and ripe nose, showing notes of blackberry compote, ink, iodine, dark licorice, dark chocolate and violet and conifer. Full body, lots of juicy dark fruit, some structured tannins and a chewy finish. Drink in 2023.

Two Hands Wines Winery Video

The idea for Two Hands was born in September 1999 when founders Michael Twelftree and Richard Mintz sat at a friend’s engagement party and decided it was time to make their own wine and market it on the world stage.

The original aim was, and still is, to make the best possible Shiraz-based wines from prized growing regions throughout Australia. With so much Australian wine being sold around the globe under multi-region labels in a formulaic style, the intention was to break the mold and showcase the diversity of Australian Shiraz by highlighting regional and vineyard characteristics by allowing the fruit to be the primary feature of the wines.

 Quality without compromise is central to the Two Hands philosophy, driving all the decisions from fruit and oak selection to packaging and promotion. From the outset, Two Hands set out to be unique and innovative, this approach is reflected in everything from the names of the wines through to, not least, the wines themselves. From small beginnings, the winery has been able to manage its growth organically whilst maintaining an absolute quality focus. Premium fruit is sourced from the finest Shiraz growing regions in Australia, and Two Hands works closely with its estate vineyards and band of growers to ensure the full potential of each vineyard is reached. They handle every parcel of fruit, however small, separately from crushing through to fermentation and oak maturation to ensure complexity and personality in the finished wines.

In its simplest form, it could be said that they squeeze the grapes and put them in a bottle. However, in practice there are many different steps and countless hours involved, from vineyard, through to winemaking, tasting, blending and maturation in order to make consistent, quality wines.
