    Winemaker's Notes:

    The Lucky Country Shiraz comes from McLaren Vale, which is a coastal area featuring vines that are over 100 years old and are known for mocha and warm-earth characteristics.

    This wine springs from the glass with mint, herb, dark chocolate, fresh plums, anised and roasted meats. The palate starts out on the attack with a sway of dark fruits that are very rich but also rounded. This wine shows lovely mouth feel, density and control, it starts out layered and concentrated but reveals a much softer side of the finish.

    The Lucky Country started as a small project created by Michael Twelftree of the famed Two Hands Winery, for a select few clients.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Opaque purple. Sexy aromas of cassis, blackberry, cola, licorice and mocha. Sweet and broad in the mouth, with very good intensity and definition to the dark fruit preserve, cocoa and floral flavors. Open-knit, highly aromatic shiraz, with good finishing cling and sweet persistence.

    International Wine Cellar

    Ripe and polished, a supple style that emphasizes dark fruit, including black cherry and prune, against spicy overtones of licorice and pepper. Finishes gracefully.
