Bird in Hand Bush Shiraz 2020 (6 Bottles) Adelaide Hills

by Red+White Cellar 0 orders



BUSH Shiraz is an elegant and alluring expression of contemporary Australian Shiraz. A nod to the past using traditional techniques including wild fermentation and hand plunging combines with modern winemaking finesse. Fruit for this cooler climate shiraz was selected from a diverse range of vineyards across the Adelaide region including the Mt Lofty Ranges, Adelaide Hills and Langhorne Creek.

Harvested in the cool early morning, the fruit was destemmed with a large proportion of whole berries transferred into open fermenters. Parcels spent between 7-12 dates on skins before being transferred to new (10%) and older French oak barrels for 14 months.

Deep red in colour with bright purple hues, this wine exhibits lifted and intense aromatics, with ripe and spicy dark fruit characters of blackberry and black plum mixed with a touch of pepper and vanilla bean.

A full bodied, elegant wine it shows a balanced acidity and silky tannins culminating in a long finish on the palate, with the instant appeal and the necessary balance & structure to age for up to five years.

There are places that exude natural beauty and elegance, a towering sense of history, an enduring set of values, a feeling of wonder. Bird in Hand is one such place. Set in South Australia, on some of the world’s oldest soils, it is an extraordinary destination full of ancient charm. Over two decades, it has become a cradle for passionate oenologists and lovers of life, art and culture.

Here, there is a sense of oneness with nature, a purposeful peace that emanates from the guiding philosophy of founders Andrew and Susie Nugent. As caretakers of a tender ecosystem, their brave vision frames Bird in Hand as a microcosm of the natural cycles of life, where the story in the soil becomes the inspiration for various manifestations of modern art and culture.

We celebrate the priceless asset of Australian indigenous culture while respectfully creating new traditions. We juxtapose the historical with the contemporary, the ancient with the modern. All along the way, simplicity is our north star, a portal to natural elegance and the key to a deep connection to the incredible location that we are so fortunate to call home.

Bird in Hand has expanded into Tasmania, having acquired a rugged stretch of coastline in Seymour on the east coast of Tasmania. Bordering the Douglas Apsley National Park, this folding Tasmanian landscape with a unique microclimate of growing conditions we have begun planting vines to produce exceptional quality fruit while nurturing corridors of wildlife to retain a self-regulating ecosystem. The 400-acre property rich in dolerite soils with a smattering of ironstone combined with negligible frost conditions in spring and extended slow ripening periods in autumn, make it ideal for growing Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. One hundred and fifty acres of the land will be planted under vine and in other areas, vegetation will be restored, and native shrubs and flaxes will be planted preserving biodiversity. Sustainability woven into the core of their identity, Bird in Hand plan to create a preeminent destination with ambitious land art traversing the ancient soils, a 37-acre dam to preserve the natural habitat creating an ecological haven.
