2019 Two Hands Gnarly Dudes Shiraz Barossa Valley – For many, the Picture Series is the introduction to Two Hands, so their first mission is to over deliver on quality. The winemaking technique and effort that goes into making a Gnarly Dudes or Angels’ Share is no different to the higher tiers of the portfolio, so these are still serious wines, with a focus on purity of fruit and sensory pleasure. They get to play with different varietals and regions here, weird and wonderful at times, and each new release gives them the chance to create a new label. Michael is the ideas man when it comes to the names, coming up with the catchy references and back stories that add to the appeal of drinking the Picture Series.
Hits the palate with vibrancy and pop. Bright berry notes dance across the palate. Medium to full bodied with richness of fruit balanced by bright refreshing acidity. Tannins are prominent but melt beautifully into a wall of fruit. Finished with a lovely long palate, accented by notes of red licorice, lavender, and dark chocolate with a creamy texture from lees contact.
The aim for these wines are to bring a smile to your face when you pick up the bottle, reminding you that wines should be approachable and of course… fun.
