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

Fruit for this cool climate shiraz was selected from a diverse range of vineyards across the Adelaide hills. Deep red in colour, with bright purple hues. Intensely aromatic with ripe and spicy dark fruit characters of blackberry and black plum, mixed with a hint of pepper and vanilla bean

Food Matches

The wine comes alive with tomato based dishes, particularly salami pizza with fresh torn basil. It goes equally well with a humble plate of rosemary and garlic oven roasted vegetables.
