Two Hands Fields of Joy Clare Valley Shiraz 2019
Owner Michael Twelftree pinched the name from a Lenny Kravitz song, which came to him as he wandered through their Clare Valley vineyards. If you have been to the Clare, that’s not hard to imagine.
Love the way we can look at shiraz from a series of regions with Two Hands – pick a favourite. There is no wrong answer. This one is much more from the dry herbs, leafy, elegant end of the spectrum. Finer than its peers, and focussed. Mulberries, leather, a hint of leafiness. Balanced and with very fine tannins (clearly, ‘fine’ is the word of the day when it comes to this wine). Good acidity, excellent length and a promising future.
