The 2017 Lily’s Garden Shiraz is marked by ripe cherry fruit and herbal undertones. Hints of thyme and mint appear on the nose, while the medium to full-bodied palate is creamy and ripe, turning silky on the finish. This is one of the few Garden series wines where the oak is evident, but it’s still well blended with the rest of the wine, showing up as just a bit of additional structure.

Two Hands source premium fruit from six of the finest Shiraz growing regions in Australia, from which we produce the Garden Series. Fascinated about isolating a wine to its region and wanting to define and showcase the individual characteristics of the best Australian Shiraz growing regions, Michael Twelftree has successfully demonstrated regionality within Australian Shiraz for many years with the Garden Series. Showcasing six wines, each sourced from a premium Shiraz growing region in Australia, all handled identically in terms of vinification and maturation on the Two Hands? estate, the Garden Series accurately reflects the soil, climate and other aspects of each unique region.
