Welcome to the November edition of our Instinctively Curious Newsletter! November is all about our wonderful and iconic Garden Series; a nod to our history and where the Two Hands story started. Sourcing premium fruit from six of the finest Shiraz growing regions in Australia the Garden Series highlights the quality over compromise winemaking approach of Two Hands Wines. We have recently released the 2020 Garden Series of Shiraz and they are now available in both our cellar door and online.
The 2020 vintage was led by our Chief Winemaker, Richard Langford, who brought a new level of professionalism to leading our team. Richard’s deft skill and knowledge backed by excellent communication and management skills created a very even flow to our ferment management and fruit intakes. The quality of the juice post pressing is as good as I can remember at Two Hands.
Unfortunately, the 2020 Samantha’s Garden Shiraz is already sold out due to the smaller crop from this vineyard in the Armagh sub-district of Clare Valley. The best way to not miss out on future releases and ensure your allocation is to join our Wine Club and subscribe to an annual Garden Series pack each year when it is released in November.

2020 Bella’s Garden Shiraz
Bella is predominately grown in the Red/Brown earth of the Barossa’s western ranges, the soil profile creates masculine tannins and richness through the palate. Lower yield-limiting soils provide a large fruit concentration. The label’s colour reflects the red soils of the Barossa’s western ranges where all the best Two Hands vineyards are located. Watch more about the Barossa Valley with the video at the end of the newsletter.
Bella’s Garden is classically rich and powerful. The fruit is bold and persistent, offering layer after layer of dense textures. The tannins are silky, velvety, powerful and oh, so long. This is one hell of a Bella’s and will pack many punches for many years to come. This 2020 vintage of Bella’s Garden will age easily for 20+ years.
For our friends in Melbourne, we are travelling to your amazing city this weekend after just returning from Cellar Door on the Road Sydney. We really hope to see you, so if you have not yet had a chance to grab tickets, don’t miss out! follow this link HERE to book now!
Julie grew up in Williamstown and has lived close to the Barossa region ever since. She currently lives on a 2.5-acre property at Cockatoo Valley amongst the gum trees with her husband. She has worked in finance for over 35 years in all kinds of industries; light manufacturing, food manufacturing/processing, retail and wine to name a few. Noting that when she started her career, the technology of the time was Telex Machines, DOS and 9-inch floppy disks (and they were actually floppy!). On her days off, you can find her spending time with her two sons, reading, camping, watching some Aussie movies and travelling where possible. Julie joined team Two Hands in 2021 as our new Finance Officer. One of Julie’s favourite jobs in our small office team is chatting with all of our amazing Wine Club Members to organise their subscriptions and make sure they are receiving all the latest vintage releases.
