What the Critics say
'In the review of the 2012 Two Cells Shiraz I said: “This wine is a win for the consumer. It’s made from the barrels deemed not worthy of the cut of the top-priced Domenica Shiraz, but it was made, grown and matured to the same specifications.” Same applies here.
It’s really good. Meaty, berried and awash with crushed fennel flavour. The texture feels polished, the peppercorn and pepper are placed to perfection. Winemaker Peter Graham says “I’m trying to make a drink-ready wine that is still serious. What I want to make are table wines that aren’t monuments.” Exhibit A right here. It’s a medium-bodied red with flavour, charisma and form. I tasted this relatively briefly but my note ends with the words: Buy Buy Buy.'
Lovely scents of black fruits, liquorice, white pepper and dusty earth. On the palate there is a depth of flavour and complexity with spicy savouriness, plum and cherry fruit flavours together with a purple inky minerality. The fine tannins are perfectly integrated with the cool climate acidity. Simply delicious.
