Named after the gnarled old vines that continue to give up their fruit, year after year.
Two Hands, Gnarly Dudes, Shiraz, Barossa Valley, 2017
Big love from the Barossa. Lashings of vanilla, sweet sweet vanilla….but tempered well with good peppery spice. Desired plummy polished goodness, but a bluestone earthy minerality. Medium-full bodied, lovely big hits of red fruit with a wink of herbed spice and savoury coda. The tannins are matt-like, fine knit with a definitive upward inflection at the end. All things in place: Like a wedding cake, all the layers are placed just so: tidy and correct.
