Winemaker Notes

Lily's Garden Shiraz is a deep, deep red, with a magenta rim. Rich, bold dark fruits dominate the nose, with bitter chocolate, creme anglaise, mocha and underlying spice and cracked pepper notes. There is fine juicy fruit through the entry to the mid palate where spicy mocha notes emerge with fine tannins. The wine finishes long with juicy persistence. Made with 100% Shiraz.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
JH 94
Australian Wine Companion
Deeply coloured, and offering an array of ripe black fruits, licorice, bitter chocolate and some sappy complexity; the palate is medium to full-bodied, fleshy and showing fresh acidity, and is ultimately in complete harmony and balance.
WS 93
Wine Spectator
Ripe, supple and succulent, offering a juicy mouthful of red berry, blackberry, cherry, clove and white pepper flavors that sail easily over refined tannins, picking up steam on the finish. Best from 2014 through 2020.
RP 91
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Deep garnet in color, the 2010 Lily’s Garden Shiraz is scented of blueberry pie, black berries and mulberries with hints of chocolate, espresso and menthol. Full bodied with plenty of mouth-filling pure berry flavors, it has a medium level of very fine tannins and refreshing acid backbone to support, finishing long. Drink it now to 2020+.

Two Hands Wines, McLaren Vale, Australia
Video of winery

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.

McLaren Vale

View all wine

Known for opulent red wines with intense power and concentration, McLaren Vale is home to perhaps the most “classic” style of Australian Shiraz. Vinified on its own or in Rhône blends with Grenache and Mourvèdre, these hot-climate wines are deeply colored and high in extract and alcohol with signature hints of dark chocolate and licorice. Cabernet Sauvignon is also produced in a similar style. Whites, often made from Chardonnay or Sauvignon Blanc tend to be opulent and full of tropical, stone and citrus fruit.

Syrah/Shiraz

View all wine

Marked by unmistakable deep purple hue and savory aromatics, Syrah accounts for a good deal of some of the most intense, powerful and age-worthy reds in the world. Native to the Northern Rhône, Syrah still achieves some of its maximum potential here, especially from Hermitage and Côte-Rôtie.

Syrah also plays an important component in the canonical Southern Rhône blends based on Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre, adding color, depth, complexity and structure to the mix. Today these blends have become well-appreciated from key appellations of the New World, namely Australia, California and increasingly, with praise, from Washington.

In the Glass

Syrah typically shows aromas and flavors of purple fruits, fragrant violets, baking spice, white pepper and even bacon, smoke or black olive. In Australia, where it goes under the name Shiraz, it produces deep, dark, intense and often, jammy reds. While Northern Rhône examples are typically less fruity and more earthy, California appears increasingly capable of either style.

Perfect Pairings

Flavorful Moroccan-spiced lamb, grilled meats, spareribs and hard, aged cheeses are perfect with Syrah. Blue cheeses are perfect with a dense and fruit-driven Australian Shiraz.

Sommelier Secret

Due to the success of Australian “Shiraz,” winemakers throughout the world have adopted this synonym for Syrah when they have produced a plush and fruit forward wine made in the Australian style. As an aside, Australians are also fond of tempering their fruit-forward Shiraz by blending with Cabernet Sauvignon, which adds depth and structure.
