Wine Review: This opaque and very dark ruby colored Shiraz from Two Hands was very well-received by the Tasting Panel. It opens with a fragrant blackberry and dark chocolate bouquet with hints of blueberry and cherry. On the palate, this wine is medium plus bodied, balanced and juicy. The flavor profile is a tasty blackberry jam with notes of minerality and oak. We also detected boysenberry, black plum, and dark chocolate. The finish is dry and its flavors and mild tannins drift away nicely. The Panel suggested this Shiraz is a nice sipper on its own. With food they would suggest pairing it with a grilled leg of lamb or with honeycomb and soft cheese. Enjoy - KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: Color: Deep red with a purple hue.
Aroma: Aromas of black accent fruits like blackberry, juniper, charcuterie and notes of coal dust and aromatic black pepper.
Taste: Medium to full bodied in weight. Saturates the palate like only a Barossa Shiraz can. Plenty of bounce and energy across the palate with aromatic notes of dried flower, black peppercorns and a good dose of Barossa preserved meats.
