Bird in Hand Winery

Situated in an area of the Adelaide Hills that was littered with goldmines in the 1800s, the Bird in Hand winery was purchased and planted in 1997 by Andrew Nugent, current Executive Director. Andrew has kept the close historical links alive both in the naming of the winery and their wine ranges; Two in the Bush and Nest Egg were the names of mineshafts in the Bird in Hand goldmine. From 23 ha under vine in Woodside and 5 ha in Clare, Chief Winemaker Kym Milne produces classic examples of cool climate Chardonnay and Shiraz.

Tasting Notes

Light and pale with a hint of a green, aromas are lifted, fresh and punchy, with notes of passionfruit, fresh pineapple and grapefruit. Full of flavour, with a slightly textured mid-palate that finishes dry, with subtle citrus acidity.

Food Matches

Delicious with fish cakes
