Brand Two Hands
Alcohol/vol 13.8%
Deep red with a purple hue. Aromas of black accent fruits like blackberry, juniper, charcutierie and notes of coal dust and aromatic black pepper. Medium to full bodied in weight. Saturates the palate like only a Barossa Shiraz can. Plenty of bounce and energy across the palate with aromatic notes of dried flower, black peppercorns and a good dose of Barossa preserved meats.

This has attractive spice and fragrance. Really complex and packed with dark plums and blackberries. The texture is silky with precisely defined tannins. Drink or hold.

The 2018 Gnarly Dudes is also terrific, offering a ripe, medium to full-bodied style that has notable freshness and purity in its blue fruits, spice, eucalyptus, and minty aromas and flavors. Beautifully balanced and downright silky on the palate, count me impressed. Drink it any time over the coming 7-8 years.

Juicy and appealing, offering a fresh mix of blueberry, cherry and framboise flavors on a smooth, velvety and spicy frame. Matcha green tea and Szechuan peppercorn details linger. Drink now through 2032. 18,000 cases made, 4,500 cases imported.

Lovely mixed berry notes appear on the nose of the 2018 Gnarly Dudes Shiraz. It's a prototypical Barossa Shiraz made with modern sensibilities, marrying subtle hints of French oak with bold fruit. Hints of mint and licorice add interest, while the full-bodied palate is ripe and creamy without going over the top.
