Andrew Nugent grew up next door to the great historical wineworks at Penfolds Magill. He honed his craft as viticulturalist and vigneron amongst the illustrious wineries of old McLaren Vale. In the 1990s, Nugent planted new vines at Woodside along Bird In Hand Road, on the site of an ancient gold mine, a godsend of fortuitously fertile soils and magnificent mesoclimes for stellar quality Adelaide Hills wine. Bird In Hand have since amassed a breathtaking tally of international accolades for the unrivalled excellence of their superlative vintages, wonderfully small batch releases, with the magnificence of structure, seamlessness and immaculacy of fruit, to enthuse curio and cognescenti alike...

The majority of components are treated to several days cold soak maceration, concentrating the ripe berry fruit characters, followed by vinification in open top fermenters. The balance is vinified at cooler temperatures to retain aromatic intensity and reduce alcoholic extraction, before being run off for a course of concentration. Regular pumpovers maximize colour, flavour and tannin extraction from skins. Ferments are pressed off to a selection of new and second use French and American oak hogsheads for malolactic and a term of twenty months maturation. Rigorous barrel selection ensures that only the highest quality components are included into the finished wine.
Deep purple in the glass. A nose reminiscent of black and blue berry fruit, mocha and vanillin oak. The seductive palate is rich and intense with plum, black cassis fruit with hints of chocolate, liquorice and earthy exotic spices. Cedary oak is evident but well integrated and the finish is smooth and persistent. Drinks marvelously upon release and will develop handsomely.
