Two Hands Waterfall Block Shiraz 2018


This is a unique wine coming from the suburbs of Adelaide. If you don’t believe me, search for Waterfall Gully Road in Burnside on Google Maps and you’ll spy the patch of vines on the edge of the city, one of the last urban vineyards anywhere in the world. It crafts a very unique style of Australian Shiraz with an attractive mix of sweet and savoury fruits – plum jam, bush mint, red earth and pepperberry fruits supported by generous oak. It is not a massive wine on the palate – generous but reserved with some firmish tannins that provide plenty of backbone to support its lingering, silky, subtle finish. Easy to miss but by the second glass you will know this is something special.
