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

Producer: Two Hands
SKU: 637
Delivery date: Dispatch within 1-3 day's

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.

2003 was a challenging vintage in Barossa Valley but with careful vineyard management Two Hands were able to produce a wine with good quality fruits and which is aging very well.

The 2003 Deer in Headlights is bright garnet red in colour with orange tints. A generous wine with pleasant flavours of stewed blackcurrant, prune, coffee, liquorice and a touch of vanilla.

Tasted 14/12/2015 suggested drinking window 2010 – 2017.

I'm continually impressed
It's not often a Shiraz from a hot year like 2003.......improves with age. I've been drinking this wine from Cellar Link since 2012. Buying it at various market prices. It's now well rounded, spicy, tannin free, leather and tobacco notes, wafted fruit, vanilla, mid length. Good with an Irish stew, Peking duck, pizza or easily drunk on its own. It's a Thursday night quaffer not a Sunday roast wine - to show off to the in-laws :-)
Expect some bottle age, some cork variation, not no real dramas to speak of though.
