Praise for our God's Country Olive Oil

Along with positive reviews on a handful of Two Hands wine releases, the April 2016 issue of Wine Spectator Magazine has also shone the spotlight on our 2015 God’s Country Olive Oil.

In a feature piece titled ‘The Olive Is Back’, writer Owen Dugan outlines the similarities between Olive Oil and Wine, as well as reviews a handful of Olive Oils from around the world.

There are lots of parallels between wine and olive oil. Both have one harvest per year; the best offerings are single-origin, vintage-dated bottlings; tasting them is similar, from nosing and judging body and flavor on the palate to aerating and assessing length. They even grow in many of the same places.

Two Hands 2015 God’s Country McLaren Vale

Here’s proof positive that good olive oil doesn’t only come from the Mediterranean. Perfect olive-growing climates abound, especially in California, South America and Australia. What was to some degree a novelty 15 years ago has been replaced by real quality. Twelftree’s small production has a buttery golden color and a light, piquant aroma of hay. It’s rich and very agreeable, more floral than fruity, with a light, lingering kick along the finish. Though not especially complex, it is perfectly balanced.

2015 God’s Country is available online now in very limited quantities.
