Two Hands Angel's Share Shiraz 2017
I haven't seen a Two Hands wine for ages. A mate of mine bangs on about their reliability mind you. Enter marketing gun Pippa Merrett who recently commenced a new role with the company. She has a track record of making stuff happen and some samples suddenly appeared at my door. Thanks Pip!
Angel's Share is made with McLaren Vale fruit although Two Hands is Barossa based.
Fourteen months in 12% new American oak with the remainder seeing 1-8 year-old American and French oak.
A straight up and down wine here. Nothing leaps out to have me scampering for more. It's just a solid drink, and if you're happy with that, you won't be disappointed. Dark fruit, some blueberries, a full and generous delivery plus some exotic spices to close.
Perhaps my mate is right and reliability at this price point from Two Hands is the go. Steak, pizzas and burgers for this one. Good stuff.
Drink now to six years.
Region: McLaren Vale
