The Adelaide Hills are renowned for Sauvignon Blanc. Four hundred metres above sea level, the Bird In Hand vineyards face north and boast deep, well drained red earth, formed from metamorphic rock. Batches of the purest free runs, pressed from choice parcels of Sauvignon Blanc are individually fermented at cooler temperatures to retain fresh, lively fruit characters and crisp varietal definition. Although the Adelaide Hills do provide an unfair edge in terms of quality, it's always a thrill for the Bird In Hand team to taste the fruit of their endeavours in the finished wine.
Very light staw hue. Bouquet of greenery and herbaceousness. Citrus flavours, honeydew and tropical fruits, especially passion and grapefruits with a touch of brisk minerality. The palate is fresh and intense, expressing the signature Adelaide Hills style, finishing long, lively and crisp, striking the perfect balance between intensity and elegance. To be enjoyed chilled alongside crustacea, white meat dumplings or Al fresco.
