2010 Two Hands "Bella's Garden" Shiraz Barossa Valley South Australia

SKU #1081021 95 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark A brilliant example of Barossa Valley Shiraz, the stunning 2010 Two Hands Shiraz Bella's Garden (aged 20 months in 15% new French oak Hogsheads) is the largest scaled of the Garden Series and boasts decadent, rich aromas of black and blue fruits, licorice, bay leaf, and underbrush. Despite the overall richness here, this stays remarkably complex and elegant, showing a full-bodied, textured mouth feel, loads of integrated acidity, and a blockbuster, structured finish where the class really shows. There’s nothing blowsy or overdone here, and this thrilling Shiraz is approachable now due to the fruit, yet should have upwards of 15+ years of prime drinking. Inner quote mark (6/2012)

95 points Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2010 Bella’s Garden is profoundly scented of blackberries, warm black plums and mulberries with an underlying earthiness plus hints of cinnamon stick, licorice and toast. Rich, ripe and concentrated on the full bodied palate, it is beautifully poised in the mouth with a medium level very fine tannins and crisp acid line framing the dense flesh and going into a long multi-layered finish. (LPB) Inner quote mark (2/2013)

95 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Pepper, clove and plum flavors weave through dense dark cherry and roasted plum fruit, melding together smoothly on the complex and expansive finish. A big wine with depth and harmony. *Ranked #3 of the Top 100 Wines of 2012* (HS) Inner quote mark (7/2012)

93 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Glass-staining purple. Intense aromas of black and blue fruit preserves, incense and violets. Lush, palate-coating blueberry and cassis flavors show both power and verve, with peppery spices adding bite. Finishes sweet, floral and very long, with impressive precision. (JR) Inner quote mark (7/2012)

91 points James Halliday

Outer quote mark Deep purple-red; a massive full-bodied wine, the densely packed palate with black fruits, oak and tannins seemingly blended together by a giant magimix. Inner quote mark (5/2012)

K&L Notes

Notes of cherries, chocolate, cedar, spice and scorched earth. Very seductive on the nose. Dense plums explode onto the palate with spice, subtle chocolate and tar. The fine tannin backbone rolls on and on from the mid palate, surrounding by fresh juiciness, dark fruit and subtle oak.
