In 1997, an unassuming young viticulturalist and winemaker, Andrew Nugent, chanced his arm in the emerging wine region of the Adelaide Hills. He planted the seeds of the Bird in Hand vineyard across 100 acres of rich, fertile ground in the Adelaide Hills. The region was scattered with gold mines during the 1800s and the Nest Egg, Bird in Hand and Two in the Bush wines proudly bear the names of these original mines. Since those first plantings Bird in Hand has grown significantly in stature, no doubt due in part to internationally-renowned Chief Winemaker, Kym Milne MW, who is recognised for commanding one of the strongest palates in the wine world. Capitalising on their Adelaide Hills positioning, Bird in Hand produce a range of beautifully proportioned wines, highlighting the cool climate nature of their plantings. TASTING: Pink salmon in colour. The bouquet shows lifted varietal aromas of strawberry, cherry and watermelon. The palate shows varietal flavours of strawberry, cherry and Kiwi fruit with crisp acidity and a balanced fruit finish.
When drinking with a selection of starters such as Poppadoms with the classic dips, onion bhajis, and samosas, we enjoy a fruity fizz like this one, which stands up to the sweet spiced notes of the mango chutney, cuts through the creaminess of the raita and is palate-cleansing enough to cut through all the deep-fried fats.
