Two Hands Fields of Joy Clare Valley Shiraz 2019


Apparently named after the Lenny Kravitz Fields of Joy Album (it’s a good one for fans of early Kravitz), this was my pick from the whole Two Hands Picture Series Range thanks to its combination of raw power and brooding, savoury personality. It’s a proper Clare Shiraz showing all those delicious liquorice and plum compote fruits with a dusting of red earth, salt bush and peppery spice. The palate is a different game altogether with greater fruit sweetness and a rich core of mouthfilling dark fruits on a seam of chewy tannins that drive a long and muscular finish. It is a big, chunky style that will provide delicious drinking over the next ten years. It is also fantastic value.
