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...

Shiraz McLaren Vale South Australia
Egerton E S Dennis settled on ninety acres of vineyard at McLaren Flat after serving in the RAAF. Ege pioneered the production of Mead and sold his crop of wine grapes to some of Australia's most eminent brands before founding his own label in 1971, with the object of converting the high quality fruit into pure, estate made wines. Since establishment, Dennis Wines have collected hundreds of medals and accolades at national and international taste offs, twice claiming the revered Bushing King awards for best wine at the McLaren Vale Winemakers Exhibition.

Grapes are harvested throughout the cool of early morning and vinified at 24C in open fermenters, treated to a continuous gentle agitation of the cap and twice daily pumpovers. After several days of ferment on skins, juices are run off to a basket press and returned to the free runs. Following completion of malolactic, Peter Dennis is matured for a year in a selection of American and French oak hogsheads.
Bright, dark scarlet colour. Luscious nose of coffee, cherries and plum, pepper, tarry earth and baking spice. Big, full bodied and soft to the palate, characterised by fresh fruit flavours of blackberry and plums, laced with black pepper, supported by a lean firm acid/ tannin structure helping to round out the finish. The ideal accompaniment to roast meats, grilled steak and hard cheese.
