I haven’t had a lot of experience with Two Hands and it is probably better known in the USA than Australia - like Mollydooker. Aromas of Plum, oak spice, liquorice and prune. On the full bodied palate there were sweet plummy characters with dark bitter chocolate - Opulent. My wife, Barb, loved this and she doesn’t normally like big SA Shiraz - this became more medium bodied , strangely enough, with time in decanter. Skilful use of premium McLaren Vale fruit making it a delight to drink - very enjoyable. — 4 months ago
If there is a better red wine for $25 right now - let me know. Big, velvety, complex, and downright a steal. Better than any recent vintage I can recall. Still posting 16% alcohol content which i think helps bring it up a notch. — 2 months ago

This is a wine that I normally find is best enjoyed in its youth as it’s an absolute sensory experience from all angles.
I popped this thinking it would be roaring out of the gate, but it was actually quite subdued. After 30mins in the decanter, the room almost filled with the aromatics…wave after wave of rich, decadent dark fruits dipped in fondue, with vanilla baking spice, and espresso. While it was fairly bombastic on the palate, it wore the high ABV fairly well…there was a “creaminess” about this wine which was unique. Dark cocoa covered blueberries and blackberries, black currant, and plenty of dark roasted plum. Big structure and tannin, but the finish is “velvet” like.
I’d say this will hang in this window for a few more years before shedding some of the primary fruit, but this seems to be made to enjoy while the fireworks are still bright. — 4 months ago
