Two Hands Samantha's Garden Shiraz 2005

Two Hands Samantha's Garden Shiraz 2005

SKU 117


Deep red to the core with a soft ruby red hue. Beautiful bright aromas of red cherry, rhubarb and soft spice characters. Samantha's Garden is the most understated of the Garden Series with its fine elegant tannin structure and lean vibrant red fruits. Although medium bodied, this wine displays power and a solid core of intense complex fruit, backed by the subtle lift of seasoned French oak. A long and persistent finish.

Wine AdvocateThe 2005 Shiraz "Samantha's Garden" is from the Clare Valley. Purple-colored, it has a fragrant perfume of floral notes, violets, blueberry, and blackberry liqueur. In an elegant style, it has layered ripe fruit, a velvety texture, well-integrated tannins and plenty of complexity on the mid-palate. There is enough structure for 3-5 years of evolution and it will drink well through 2020.

Wine SpectatorBright and jazzy. Amazingly generous with its exotic pomegranate-infused cherry and plum flavors, which roll along on an open texture that lets the flavors sail through the air beautifully. There's a lovely touch of mineral on the finish. Drink now through 2015.
