Two Hands,Eden Valley, Charlie's Garden, Shiraz 2017
95 Points - Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front
Big, floral, fresh, svelte and more. Not entirely sure how it manages to combine all these things. It’s a blueberried, boysenberried, plum-driven shiraz with plenty of heft and a prettiness too. It’s a top shelf release. No alcohol heat either.
Peppery and meaty on the nose, the 2017 Charlie's Garden Shiraz is nevertheless ripe and fruity at the same time, with boysenberry and blueberry notes to sustain it across the medium to full-bodied palate. Silky and rich, it picks up hints of mint and licorice on the long finish. (robertparker.com)
