Shiraz McLaren Vale South Australia
After a remarkable five years on the prestigious Wine Spectator Top 1OO, the Two Hands story has gone from strength to strength. The team are focused on injecting their wines with real identity, personality and charm. Lily's Garden is crafted without compromise from fruit grown to superior vineyards within the Two Hands estate portfolio. The palate is filled with rich flavours of raspberries and black pepper spice, liquorice allsorts and plum. The finished wine is an unctuous Shiraz with striking dark colour and cryptic aromas.

The Two Hands winemaking team can demonstrate an innate capacity to capture the terroir of each vineyard and preserve the vital characteritics in every wine. A number of individual vineyard parcels are crushed into a mix of three and five, seven and ten tonnes open top vessels. Ferments are pumped over thrice daily throughout the peak of activity to extract optimal colour, flavours and tannin. Batches are pressed, the free runs and pressings are all returned and racked to barrel for completion of malolactic. Components are matured eighteen months in a combination of seasoned and new French oak puncheons and hogsheads. All parts are kept separate and assembled just prior to bottling.
Deep dark red. Nose of spiced plum, blueberry pie with hits of musk stick, warm vanilla and pain grille. Full bodied palate with lashings of spices and plums, blueberry jam and milk chocolate. Tannins are round, bold and chewy then tighten through the finish. Hedonistic in style with complexing notes of mocha coffee beans, vanilla pod and clove. Incredibly long and persistant through the finish.
