"Definitely on the tart side, with raging acidity against plum and prune flavors, finishing with a freshness that's tremendously appealing and should develop well with cellaring. Best from 2007 through 2015. Score: 91. —Harvey Steiman, February 28, 2006.
"Moving up in price as well as quality are the firm’s regional expressions of Shiraz, all of which can be unhesitatingly recommended. From Heathcote, the 2004 Shiraz Max’s Garden is Two Hands’ most restrained, European-styled Shiraz. It possesses firm tannin along with hints of wet stone overlaid with red and black fruits, and good acidity."
