Bird in Hand Sparkling 2018

It’s an unusual wine this one with enough fruit and sweetness to keep the occasional wine drinker happy and enough quality fruit to shift curmudgeonly wine snob from miffed to mollified. Pleasures best by itself but suspect it would be all over the turkey if given a sniff.

Allow us to prattle on a little more about this...

A sparkling wine with delightful strawberry and cherry aromas accompanied by a floral lift. Clean, vibrant strawberry flavours are enhanced by the very fine, persistent bead. The fruit sweetness is elegantly balanced by the crisp acid and long, clean finish. To be enjoyed chilled and while young.

Bird in Hand was established in 1997 when viticulturalist and winemaker Andrew Nugent left Tatachilla and planted the family vineyard at Woodside in the Adelaide Hills, near the historic goldmine of the same name. Along with another vineyard in the notable Clare region, the great fruit and skilled work of this winemaker come together in a stellar range of wines.

It's the bubbles of something that make it really something

This is our biggest selling bubbles year on year and it's no wonder. Classy, refined, slightly pink in colour and on the sweeter side, this is a bubbles for all occasions that always delivers.

We grabbed a few bottles of this for our last get together and it went down a treat with the girls. I snuck a glass myself and while it was definitely on the sweet side it was well structured and had a great mouthfeel. Nice.
