Two Hands Gnarly Dudes Shiraz 2018
|Region||Australia, South Australia, Barossa Valley|
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.
