- Named after a local gold mine, the Bird in Hand estate covers 100 acres of mineral-rich, well-drained land in the Adelaide Hills.
The cooler climate in this region of South Australia is ideally suited to producing the kind of elegant wines from classic varieties that winemaker Andrew Nugent prefers. He grew up next door to Penfolds and trained in McLaren Vale before arriving here in 1997 to plant not only vineyards but also olive groves for premium olives.
Big, soft and ripe Chardonnay with good freshness and well balanced oak.
- ''This is incredibly rich on the nose, leading to a palate overflowing with flavour and showing really good complexity.' Sam Weatherill, Etch. by Steven Edwards. 'Almond, hazelnut, brown butter and cream notes, with roasted pineapple, burnt orange zest and dried rosemary, and the oak is there too. A big wine to serve with roasted fish or white meats with a creamy sauce.' Laurent Richet MS, team leader.' - Sommelier Wine Awards
