The iconic Australian variety. 


There’s no question that our foundations were built on premium Australian Shiraz. But what makes Shiraz such an iconic variety in Australia?

Shiraz, or traditionally known as Syrah, with its origins firmly in France’s Rhône Valley, thrives in moderate to warm climates of which Australia has in abundance. The first Shiraz vines were brought to Australia by James Busby in the 1830s and has been a firm favourite in Australian vineyards ever since. In fact, it is the most widely planted grape variety in Australia.

There are many gnarly, old and ungrafted, pre-phylloxera Shiraz vineyards spread across Australia and our Barossa Valley home boasts the oldest Shiraz vineyard in the world, planted in 1843. The Barossa Old Vine Charter was instituted to register vineyards by age, so that older vines could be preserved, retained and promoted. ‘Barossa Old Vine’ equal or greater then 35 years of age. ‘Barossa Survivor Vine’ equal or greater then 70 years of age. ‘Barossa Centenarian Vine’ equal or greater than 100 years of age. ‘Barossa Ancestor Vine’ equal or greater then 125 years of age.

But, Shiraz is an adaptable variety, as not only does it thrive in warm regions like Barossa and McLaren Vale,  it also thrives  in the cooler regions of Australia like Eden Valley and Adelaide Hills. Hence why we created our collection of Garden Series Shiraz, which aims to reflect the soil, climate and other aspects of premium Shiraz produced from six unique Aussie wine regions.



In the glass, Aussie Shiraz is a medium to full bodied wine, with flavours of rich red and dark berry fruit with notes of pepper and spice, dependent on the region it is produced. A Barossa Valley Shiraz is rich and bold whereas a Shiraz from Adelaide Hills or Eden Valley shows more elegance and finesse. Pair your favourite Shiraz with a delicious Charcuterie board, grilled and roasted lamb, beef or game, winter slow-cooked favourites or, firm, aged cheeses. Yum!



Gnarly Dudes, An unctuous yet classic Barossa Valley Shiraz. The 2022 Gnarly Dudes is a deep strong black in colour. The aromatics are lifted and very intense. A tight bouquet slowly emerges with notes of cedar, raspberry, cola, black current, menthol and blood plum.

“The brooding 2021 single vineyard Blewitt Springs Shiraz offers impressive subtlety from the get go. Aged meat, spice and old leather aromas are interwoven with a powerful underlay of blackberry and mulberry. The palate then offers up a super tight core of fruit with a strong ferrous edge just starting to emerge on a finish of serious length. The muscular structure and immaculate balance provide the perfect base to enjoy this beauty over the long term.” – 95 Points  Angas Hughson for Vinous

Harriet’s Garden is sourced from one of the coolest wine regions of South Australia, the Adelaide Hills. Adelaide Hills Shiraz defies the big, bold nature of warm climate Shiraz, and showcases a stylish, refreshing, elegant style. The aromatics lend themselves to attractive peppers and spice, whilst the palate’s fine tannins and acid structures deliver palate length and age-ability in the cellar.

Showcase your Love of Two Hands & Shiraz at home with this A1 sized replica poster print of the artwork made by Dan Tomkins, seen at our Cellar Door in Marananga.

MT says “My inspiration came from sitting in a French Bistro having lunch in Singapore of all places, there was a poster on the wall and I keep looking at it over lunch think, that is super cool, we should try making one for Two Hands. I like the romance of that era and the way they positioned their wines in such a beautiful and colourful way…. something we have lost over the generations”.
