Background

The 'two hands' are Michael Twelftree and Richard Mintz who formed Two Hands Wines in 1999 with the clear objective of making the best possible shiraz based wines from prized shiraz producing regions within Australia. From the beginning the wines were very well received at home and abroad with a healthy stream of reviews, culminating in 2004 with Robert M. Parker pronouncing Two Hands as "the finest negociant operation south of the equator".

Since the winery opened, Two Hands success has gone from strength to strength with numerous accolades defining the culture of the organization. In only their 11th vintage, Two Hands created history by placing in Wine Spectator’s annual Top 100 Wines ten years in a row - an astounding achievement that has never been equaled by any other winery world-wide. Consistent 90+ reviews from Robert Parker Jnr's Wine Advocate, Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar, James Halliday's Wine Companion, Wine Spectator and the UK Decanter magazine is further testament to the company's ability to capture the terroir of each vineyard and carefully nurture the characteristics of each parcel. Not surprisingly, Two Hands has come to be regarded as one of Australia’s the most prestigious estates.


Tasting Notes

The McLaren Vale benefits from cool coastal breezes that help moderate temperatures. The region's red wines are notably intense, and the area produces fine examples of Cabernet Sauvignon. This one from Two Hands has earned a solid following here with Vintages customers and will certainly live up to all expectations. Look for a wine of great character, concentration and depth with impressive dark fruit, cassis and chocolate tones. For an inky hued New World wine, there's an awful lot of classic to the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Sexy Beast. Start with the nose of pencil shavings and cassis. Add a streamlined, medium to full-bodied palate that shows genuine Cabernet structure—firm acids and crisp edges. Yes, it's bold, flavorful and approachable young, but it also fits into Cabernet's varietal tradition.
