Description

  • Oaked
  • Medium - full bodied
  • Raspberry & blueberry
  • Vanilla & cedar

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.

A variety of grapes were picked from select sites across the Adelaide Hills to ensure maximum flavour for this shiraz, the 2015 of which picked up 97 points from James Halliday.

A variety of fruit pressing techniques were used before a mixture of inoculated and wild fermentation took place. The fruit spent 7-12 days on skins before being transferred to seasoned French oak barriques. All vineyard parcels were kept separate until blending stage, following 16 months in French oak (40% new).

The Bird in Hand signature range is a limited release of premium quality wines created from the best parcels of fruit from every vintage. These wines present the character to age impeccably whilst delivering qualities that can be enjoyed today.
