Other Info:
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.

Adelaide Hills and Pinot Noir go particularly well together. The higher altitude and cooler climate help to keep the famously wily variety happy so it can produce all of the things that Pinot Noir produces well; pretty and beguiling aromas with great complexity and spice... when it's in the mood. Of course. So it's no surprise that when Adelaide Hills Pinot Noir is made into rosé it is equally enticing, if only in a less complex way. This wine has a particularly pretty nose of strawberries, watermelon and bright red fruits while the palate is crisp.

This wine has Pinot's seductive aromatics with lifted notes of strawberry and Turkish delight. Crisp, refreshing and with a touch of sweetness, it finishes with lively acidity making it just the thing for summer time drinking in the sun.

Press:
'This fun Aussie fizz falls into the glass in an ever-so-delicate salmon-pink colour, topped with a brilliant white, frothy mousse. The flavours are all strawberry and cream, with a pleasing, lively, blushlike finish. One to pull out on special occasions.' - Will Lyons, The Times, February 2018
