Lucky Country Shiraz is made in a simple, natural fashion, with individual parcels of fruit fermented, pressed and barreled separately until blending just prior to bottling. Minimally fined and unfiltered, the wine starts out layered and concentrated, then reveals a much softer side on the finish.
Wine maker notes
From the very beginning, Two Hands have been very well received by a healthy stream of accolades. Notable reviewer Robert M. Parker anointed Two Hands as the finest negociant operation south of the equator. Individual parcels of fruit from the Barossa and McLaren Vale are fermented separately over fourteen days and pumped over regularly each day. The pressings were combined with the free run and settled for several days before going to oak. The parcels underwent malolactic in barrel, racked an average of four times. Matured in French and American oak barrels for fourteen months. All batches are kept separate until assembly just prior to bottling after a minimal fining and no filtration. Alcohol 15.1% Very deep crimson. Aromas of cedar and vanilla, toasted oak over dark chocolate, plum and spice. This is an intense wine that throws huge mouthfuls of rich, ripe fruits. A mouthfilling palate with flavours of spice, black pepper and cedar overlaid by liquorice and vanilla. Fine grained tannins are perfectly balanced, followed by an exceptionally long aftertaste of spice, liquorice and mocha. Savour the Lucky Country alongside lamb cutlets and eggplant on tabbouli. "Devastatingly proportioned, remarkable integration of oak with fruit and cherry acids, the hotness of it's perfume conjoined with ripe suggestions of plum and pepper, moccha and currant, cigarbox and soil!"

Two Hands Wines was founded in early 1999 by Michael Twelftree and Richard Mintz. The original aim shared by Michael and Richard was to make the best possible Shiraz-based wines from prized Shiraz growing regions throughout Australia. Their intention was, and still is, to showcase the diversity of Australian Shiraz by highlighting regional characteristics and allowing the fruit to be the primary feature of the wines. Two Hands refers to the very personable approach taken with each parcel of grapes, no matter how big or small. The wines are carefully guided through the viticulture and winemaking process by Michael Twelftree. Two Hands’ first vintage was in 2000, starting with just 17 tonnes of fruit. In 2004 a state-of-the-art winery was built in the picturesque Barossa Valley in South Australia, specifically designed for small batch handling. To maximise the individual regional and varietal characteristics and to allow for greater quality control, every parcel of fruit, no matter how small, is handled separately from crushing through to fermentation and oak maturation. Premium fruit is now sourced from six of the finest Shiraz growing regions in Australia, and Two Hands work closely with their own vineyards and band of growers to ensure the full potential of each vineyard is reached. From the outset, Two Hands set out to be unique. This approach is reflected in everything from the names of the wines through to innovative packaging and, not least, the wines themselves. Two Hands has grown to be a clear market leader and now exports wines to over 24 countries around the world. From small beginnings, the winery has been able to manage its growth organically whilst maintaining an absolute quality focus. ’Quality without compromise’ is a core value that drives all Two Hands decisions so, not surprisingly, the wines have received international acclaim from respected wine critics, with Robert Parker proclaiming Two Hands as ’...the finest negociant operation south of the equator...’ In November 2012, Two Hands was named in the Wine Spectator’s annual Top 100 for the 10th consecutive year, an achievement that has never been equalled by any other winery the world over. - See more at:
