Greetings wine lovers,
We trust you had a very nice festive season and hope you are having a great start to 2013.
Today’s special offer showcases the top two (out of only three) Australian wines that made it into the rankings in Wine Spectator’s Top 100.
Wine Spectator is one of the world’s most read wine magazines and each year they taste through thousands of wines from all over the globe, the latest Top 100 was chosen from a massive field of over 17,000 wines and only three Australian wines made the list.
Getting a place in their Top 100 has always been a big boost to sales for any winery lucky enough to be chosen and the wines that make it have a habit of escalating in price, we thought we better get in before the prices rise.
The top two placed Australian wines are – Two Hands Bella’s Garden Shiraz 2010 which reached the podium at no. 3 and the Schild Estate Barossa Shiraz 2010 which ranked at a very respectable no. 30 in the list. A great result for Barossa Shiraz considering there was more than 17,000 other competitors and another showing of just how good the 2010 vintage was in the Barossa Valley.
Our reviews and those from the Wine Spectator magazine are below.

Tasting notes:
The 2010 Bella’s Garden Shiraz is a dark inky colour in the glass. The nose greets you with ripe plum, blackberry, and liquorice followed by some spicy vanillin oak characters. It’s a full bodied wine with luscious flavours of plum, liquorice, blackberry and notes of dark chocolate alongside spicy, vanillin oak. Velvety smooth tannins surround the layers of fruit and has an exceptionally long finish of blackberry, liquorice and dark chocolate. Easy to see why it ranked so high (No. 3) in Wine Spectators Top 100.

“Two Hands does well with a variety of grapes but excels with Shiraz. Owner Michael Twelftree and winemaker Matt Wenk aim for a house style that emphasizes regional character with their Garden series, a collection of six different Shirazes from top growing regions in South Australia and Victoria. The Bella’s Garden bottling consistently ranks among the best, with fruit sourced from 20 vineyards throughout the Barossa Valley. Wenk uses mainly older, 300-liter French hogshead barrels to preserve the complex fruit flavors.
Pepper, clove and plum flavors weave through dense dark cherry and roasted plum fruit, melding together smoothly on the complex and expansive finish. A big wine with depth and harmony. Best from 2013 through 2020.
95 points Wine Spectator Top 100 (3rd place)
Schild Estate Barossa Valley Shiraz 2010
Ranked No. 30 in the Wine Spectator Top 100
12 bottle case
$19.00 per bottle

Tasting notes:
The Schild 2010 Shiraz is very deep crimson red in the glass. The nose offers up intense dark cherry, liquorice and well framed toasty vanillin oak with some spice. The palate is rich and full bodied displaying ripe flavours of dark plum, black cherry and liquorice backed up by toasty, spicy vanillin oak characters. Very smooth tannins allow for a long rich finish.
95 Points Drink to 2017+ Your Wine Guy
“Smooth and spicy, with distinctive black olive and tar overtones to the blackberry and spice flavors, finishing with supple texture and refinement. Drink now through 2018. No. 30 in the Top 100 2012.”
