Barossa Valley Shiraz

By visiting this page, we hope that you are either enjoying our Bella’s Garden Barossa Valley Shiraz or would like to find out more about it.

Two Hands Wines source premium fruit from six of the finest Shiraz growing regions in Australia, including Barossa Valley, Eden Valley, Clare Valley, McLaren Vale, Adelaide Hills and Heathcote, Victoria, from which we produce the Garden Series of wines. The Garden Series aims to showcase the distinguishing characteristics of Shiraz, Australia’s most well-known and widely planted grape variety, when grown in different, premium wine regions. Each region produces fruit with hallmark flavours representative of where they are grown and the unique climatic conditions and soil types.

Bella’s Garden is a blend of our finest Shiraz barrels from across the region. The Barossa Valley is one of Australia’s oldest wine regions, with existing plantings of Shiraz, Grenache and Mourvèdre vines that are over 125 years old. Two hands has produced this wine since the first vintage in 1999 and it has become a favourite among many of our followers and Shiraz lovers everywhere.

The fruit for this wine is predominately sourced from vineyards in the Barossa’s western ranges, encompassing the Greenock/Seppeltsfield/Marananga area of the region.  The soil profile, made up of red-brown earth over schist, on this side of the valley creates masculine tannins and richness through the palate. Lower yielding, small bunches provide a large fruit concentration. For more information on the unique soil profiles of the various sub-regions within the Barossa visit The Barossa Grounds website.

Bella’s Garden label colour reflects the red soils of the Barossa’s western ranges where all the Two Hands estate vineyards & cellar door are located.

Fermented in five to ten tonne open top fermenters, with regular pump overs (2 times daily over entire ferment) to control ferment, extract colour, flavour and tannins.

Average time ‘on skins’ was 7-10 days before being pressed to tank, free run and pressings combined. The wine was then racked to barrel, where malolactic fermentation took place. Bella’s Garden was bottled unfined and unfiltered.

Aged for 18 months in French oak hogsheads, with 15% new and the remainder in older oak 1-6 years old.



“Two Hands’ Garden Series sees them embark on a regional road-trip around 5 famous Australian wine regions before they settle back to their home turf of the Barossa Valley with the Bella’s Garden. Like their McLaren Vale release it’s a ‘best of’ the famous subregions, with many familiar names. Fragrant, plush and supple with a distinct contemporary feel, it’s an excellent example of a modern Barossa style that will please many drinkers.” – 94 points. Read on HERE
