Winemaker Notes

The Garden Series is a Super Premium range of six Shiraz from six of the finest Shiraz producing regions in Australia. Sophie's Garden reflects the unique terroir of Padthaway.

Color
Almost black at the core with a purple rim.

Aroma
Aromatic bouquet that resonates with cooler climate tones of aromatic spice and mint.

Taste
Behind the perfumed aromatic fruit aromas and clove, pepper spice is a powerful intense wine, rich and full bodied. Grainy but fine tannins mingle with the rich plum and blackberry fruit characters.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
WS 91
Wine Spectator
Broad and generous, with dense, dark cherry and plum flavors shaded by mineral and a touch of earth. Yet the frame seems to melt away, leaving the flavors hovering in midair. An enticing red that will benefit from cellaring. Best after 2008. 793 cases made.
RP 91
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2005 Shiraz "Sophia’s Garden," sourced from Padthaway, gives up notes of clove, soy, leather, pepper, and blackberry. It is the most tannic of the Garden Series and somewhat muted. Perhaps 6-8 years in the cellar will allow the wine to blossom but that is a gamble.

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.
