2019 Two Hands Yacca Block Single Vineyard Shiraz

Mike Bennie- 93 points, Pretty wine with heft and depth. Lots of blue fruits in perfume, sweet herb, violets and sweet spice. Supple texture that finishes in a neat, light and fresh point. More of the blueberry/mulberry fruit, quite a decent lash of cedary-vanilla-cinnamon woody spice laid on. It rolls round and long with its big fruit and spice character. Not quite in the pitch perfect balance zone of other 2019 Two Hands Single Vineyard wines, but representative and pleasurable. Read more

Tyson Stelzer - Halliday's Wine Companion

From 16yo vines at 483m elevation. Medium purple red. The classic spice of Eden Valley accents black and red berries, harmoniously supported by even acidity, medium-grained tannins and dark chocolate oak. Full ripeness furnishes a warm finish of medium persistence. Tyson Stelzer Published 13 August 2021

Tasting Notes

APPEARANCE: Very deep concentrated black on black. AROMA: A beautiful perfume lifts the hairs of your nose, dark plum, chocolate, cassis, salted fig, warm nougat, dried herbs, with notes of smoked meats. PALATE: The palate is thick, concentrated and coating. This hits all the flavour receptors on your tongue; it is more soft and caressing than an all-out attack. Here the acid saves the day with a lovely saline edge, leaving your mouth puckering and craving more. The tannins here have an extra dimension, this is classic and classy Eden Valley. This shows off that mineral structure that can only come from a great site.
