Michael Twelftree and Richard Mintz established Two Hands with the aim of making the best possible Shiraz wines from fruit grown to good vineyards. Their intention was and still is to show the diversity of Australian Shiraz by highlighting regional characteristics and allowing the fruit to be the primary feature of the final wine. By working closely with growers and focusing on small batch handling, Two Hands are able to identify parcels of old Barossa vineyard Shiraz which can be assembled into an exceptional wine of salient varietal definition.
Gnarly Dudes is fashioned from fruit picked off mature sites in Barossa Valley’s western ranges. Individual parcels of Shiraz from distinguished Barossa vineyards are separately fermented in a mix of three, five, seven and ten tonnes open top vessels over the course of a fortnight, pumped over three times daily. Pressings are combined with the free run and settled for several days before filling to oak for completion of malolactic and several rackings. Matured in in aselection of seasoned and new French and American oak barrels, puncheons and hogsheads for a year, batches are kept separate until assemblage.
TASTING NOTES

Vibrant palate, bright berry notes dance across the palate, medium to full bodied, richness of fruit balanced by bright refreshing acidity, tannins are prominent but seamless, red licorice finish, lavender and dark chocolate, creamy textures from lees contact.

About Two Hands Wines
The 'two hands' are Michael Twelftree and Richard Mintz who formed the company in 1999 with the clear objective of making the best possible Shiraz
Michael came to the wine industry from a construction background having spent years attending wine tastings and collecting the wines of the world. In 1998, he established his own Australian wine export company and after three successful years of selling other people's wine, he and business partner Richard Mintz decided to start their own operation.
