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...

Constructed during early settlement by a supervisor of colonial convicts, at the very epicentre of the market gardens which serviced Hobart, Clarence House is a heritage listed manor which remains largely unaltered since the 1830s. It passed through several hands before being acquired by the Kilpatricks in 1993, who answered the call of Bacchus and established the grounds to vine. There are now sixteen hectares of viticulture, several significant Burgundy clones of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, with smaller plantings of Sauvignon and Pinot Blanc, Merlot, Cabernet and Tempranillo. What's most unique about the Clarence House vineyards are the soils and topography, a number of northeast slopes which catch the early sun yet shade the vines from afternoon heat. A natural endowment of rich Jurassic soils which impart wonderful mineral characters and textures into the finished wines. Limited yields of immaculate fruit, artisanal winemaking by leading vignerons of the apple.. Heirlooms of a hobart homestead»

Mr Riggs Battle Axe Sparkling Shiraz CONFIRM VINTAGE

Shiraz McLaren Vale South Australia
An assemblage of Mr Riggs wines up to ten years of age, enhanced by an older parcel of Grenache for lift and spice, finished off with a tot of fortified Shiraz from the prestigious Piebald Gully Vineyard, contributing subtle sweetness to a richly complex wine. Battle Axe is a tongue in cheek reference to dearest mother in law, she appears formidable with her powerful pink effervescence, ultimately soothing the palate with her generous nature and refined affability but beware the after punch of her dark fruityness and engaging depth of character.
Available in cartons of six
