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...

Grape growing and winemaking have been the most significant tradition of Zema family heritage dating back to the 1800s. The Zema family is proudly traditional in its approach to viticulture, favouring hand pruning and dry grown vines to maximise fruit quality. These techniques are enhanced by the family's three strategically selected vineyard locations, capitalising on the region's subtle climactic variations. Shiraz is vinified over the course of a week under controlled temperatures in a combination of rotary and static fermenters. The finished wine is treated to fourteen months maturation in small French and American oak hogsheads, achieving a seamless construct of Coonawarra Shiraz.
Attractive deep red colour, purple hues. Ripe red berries on the bouquet, a hint of black pepper and underlying spice. The palate is complex, flavoursome yet elegant. Rich berry flavours are enhanced by toasty oak, tight and persistent tannins, excellent weight of fruit weight and a fine balance. A warming finish and persistence of flavour.
