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.
Deep red in colour, underpinned by bright purple hues. Lifted and complex on the nose, the shiraz shows notes of raspberry and blueberry missed with a touch of black pepper, vanilla and cedar. Medium to full bodied and elegant with fleshy dark fruit characters, silky tannins and balanced acidity culminating in a long and rewarding finish.
Fabulous with tomato based dishes
