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...

Chosen for its felicitious winegrowing aspects, it is a place of scrupulously clean soils, free of any pesticides or manufactured treatments. Insects are welcome here, they are mother nature's endorsement of a holistically biodynamic viticulture. Lubiana is a fifth generation winemaker, one of the apple isle's leading vignerons, he works to an arcane system of seasonal chronometers, governed by cosmic rhythms, the turning of leaves and angle of the moon.

The early success at Paringa Estate wines is a testimony to founder Lindsay McCall's passion and intuitive feel. Lindsay managed the ten acre vineyard and made wine, while maintaining a full time teaching job. The inaugural vintage was a mere three tonnes of fruit, it involved a very steep learning curve. Chardonnay is sourced from Paringa Estate paladin vineyards, including the Thacore property on Callanans Road and the Sea Vista site at Paringa Road. The winemaking process is almost identical to that of the Paringa flagships. Whole bunches are pressed to seasoned French oak barrels and treated to a partial wild yeast vinification on gross solids, followed by nine months maturation.
Medium to full yellow green. Bouquet is fruit driven with citrus and stonefruit characteristics, nectarine and peach in particular. The palate has similar tropical and stonefruit flavours combined with subtle nutty barrel ferment characters and good acidity. This is a lovely fresh wine that will provide excellent current drinking whilst continuing to develop.
