Two Hands Angels Share Shiraz

Rarely does Thirsty Thursday endorse an entire wine label, but for the better part of the 21st Century one Australian winery’s portfolio has continued to exceed expectations. Located in Barossa Valley and sourcing from vineyards throughout southeastern Australia, Two Hands has created a distinctive series of wine labels that powerfully inspire and engage the palate while invigorating the soul.

As part of their Picture Series, Two Hands “Angel’s Share” has consistently provide richly inviting and silky wine experience. The wine’s name refers to the percentage of wine that naturally evaporates during the aging process in oak barrels and it’s hard to believe an Angel would ever complain about having to imbibe it this Shiraz.

Here’s my complete review:

2012 Two Hands “Angels Share” Shiraz
Aged for 12 months is oak, the wine is concentrated maroon in color with the richness of blackberries, plum and brightness of blueberries on the palate. Bold in it’s fruit construction (but not unrefined), the palate delivers more dark fruits with the second half balancing the wines richness with well integrated tannins and acidity. Fits the classic build of Angels Share with a simple and rich dark fruit construction which is rounded and bold.

Retails around $30
