We reckon our award-winning 2016 2 Mates “The Perfect 10” Shiraz ticks all the boxes when it comes to a great shiraz. So does legendary wine critic James Halliday.
97 Points “ludicrously cheap”
Over a decade ago we set out on a quest to make our perfect shiraz. This is our tenth vintage and we’re very excited about what’s in the bottle. A big, luscious and fruit-filled Shiraz. Classic McLaren Vale. Sophisticated, beautifully balanced and with a generous hint of pepper.
Following in the award-winning tradition of previous vintages, the 2016 is already the recipient of 5 stars and BEST McLaren Vale Shiraz in Winestate Magazine AND an amazing 97 points in the 2019 James Halliday Wine Companion.
However, the ultimate judge is you. We’re sure you won’t be disappointed.
We decided that when we returned to Australia we would attempt to make our perfect Shiraz.
Naturally, our wives were a little skeptical. However, we convinced them with our cunning logic, if we don’t sell any of it, we can always drink it.
That’s how the 2 Mates story started and it has been an enjoyable journey ever since.
We are now onto our tenth vintage.
Along the way, we have picked up World Wine Awards, other medals and gongs, too many to mention, plus some amazing reviews from leading Australian wine critics year on year.
We have certainly learned a lot about what technically makes a good wine. But the one thing we have known all along is that a great wine is really about the friends you share it with.
That’s what our wine is all about. So be sure to share it with a mate or two.
