Bird in Hand
Bird in Hand Sparkling Rose 2020
Australia / South Australia
Andy's Tasting Notes
Delicate and subtle – this dry, fresh, strawberry and raspberry fruited sparkler is the epitome of elegance. Fragrant and refreshing it doesn’t lack flavour, yet is deliciously drinkable. Produced from predominately Pinot Noir grapes.
Price per bottle £14.50
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. Chief Winemaker, Kym Milne MW, joined Bird in Hand in 2003 after many years’ spent gaining international experience. In 2014 he was named Australian Winemaker of the Year by Winestate Magazine.
The site was once a dairy farm, many of the original structures remain and have been transformed to house different areas of the winery. The old cheese and yoghurt factory now houses the offices and the two big silos which were once used as grain storage for the cattle are now a feature for the 5* Halliday award-winning winery.
A multi-award winning estate.
