VOL. 12, NO. 2 | JANUARY 13 2016

Both Two Hands and Twelftree Wines get glowing reviews in the January 2016 Wine Spectator Insider, a glimpse at some of the wines that have most excited their editors in recent tastings.

2013 Twelftree Vinegrove Grenache, Greenock, Barossa Valley

A vibrant, juicy, fragrant blend of rose petal, white pepper, raspberry coulis and red licorice, showing details of fresh earth. Offers a long, lush finish. Drink now through 2030.

93 points | 41 cases made 

2013 Twelftree Moritz Grenache, Blewitt Springs, McLaren Vale

Brimming with black tea and smoky overtones to the plum and
huckleberry flavors, this is intense and dense, yet shows plenty of
refinement and style. Drink now through 2030.

93 points | 45 cases made 

2013 Lily’s Garden McLaren Vale Shiraz

Rich and luscious, with fleshy dark plum, black cherry and licorice
notes. Toast, cocoa and black tea details create a generous chorus.
Velvety finish. Drink now through 2026.

93 points | 530 cases made 

2013 Twelftree Copperview Grenache, Onkaparinga Gorge, McLaren Vale

There are plenty of toast, cedar and spice notes at the core, lending
a good backbone to the lush red raspberry and cherry flavors,
accented by lingering clove and black pepper hints. Drink now
through 2030.
