95/100
The Wine Advocate
The pure, well-balanced 2003 Shiraz Bella's Garden is a blockbuster. Dense ruby/purple with a perfume of smoky oak, bacon fat, black cherries, and sweet cassis, it possesses tremendous fruit, a wonderful texture, and a long, heady finish with sweet tannin. It should drink well for a decade or more.
WA, Robert Parker Jr. Issue: #161



94/100
Wine Spectator
Powerful. Densely packed and oozing rich cherry, blackberry, licorice, pepper and exotic spice flavors, showing gorgeous balance and even elegance as the flavors persist in a lovely chorus. Has strength and grace, and no intrusive oak. Should last a while.
WS, Harvey Steiman Issue: Mar 31 2005



93/100
Wine Companion
Very ripe dark fruits; generous mouthfeel; good tannin structure.

Daniel's Top Picks
I guess this must be what it is like to pick a favourite child?!? I’m a big fan of the two Hands wines and particularly the Garden Series – a trip to their cellar door is a must for any visit to the Barossa region! This one has lovely rich Barossa fruit, savoury notes provided by the supporting oak and a lengthy full flavoured finish. Drinking well now with still many years ahead for this gem.

Viking Wines-Grand-Shiraz Cabernet-2003-750mL

With the Shiraz component being dominant, ultra-ripe blackberry, prune and chocolate flavours finish with reasonable persistence.

Muscular-weight, it is supple and harmonious so there is no surprise that it is approachable now.

Two Hands-Deer in Headlights-Shiraz-2003-3L

2003 vintage:

Winter started with heavy rains, which tapered off resulting in below average rainfalls and a successful budburst in early spring. Flowering and set occurred in November, promoting uniform berry development and bunch numbers were on average for the season. Veraison for Shiraz and Cabernet started in late January with the older vines producing lighter crops. The height of summer saw 65mm of rainfall in the last week of February requiring swift viticultural practices to prevent the onset of disease and fungus. Our 2003 Barossa Shiraz displayed great colour and depth of flavour. Yields overall were below the long-term average but the grapes were of good quality and the resultant wines display terrific potential.

 

Wine description:

Bright purple plum colour. Glossy red fruits and spiced plum cake on the nose with a hint of vanilla spice. The palate shows swathes of rich generous fruit, ripe blackberry intermingled with soft cedary spice. A fine coating of gentle tannins washes over the palate with a long and persistent finish to end.
