Bird in Hand Cabernet Sauvignon 2020 (6 Bottles) Adelaide Hills

by Red+White Cellar 0 orders



Cabernet Sauvignon grapes were sourced from two exceptional vineyards located in Adelaide Hills and Coonawarra.

All parcels of grapes are kept separate from harvesting through to final blending. The 2021 Bird in Hand Cabernet was aged in tight grained new and seasoned French Oak Barriques for 18 months.

Every Cabernet barrel is sampled and analysed by the winemaking team who look for fruit complexity, colour, tannin structure and acidity to put together the best possible blend.

Deep in colour with red and purple hues, on the nose this wine is perfumed of violet, blackcurrant, and dried tobacco aromas with subtle spiced, coffee oak nuances.

On the palate, this Cabernet Sauvignon is bright, with fleshy blackberry and cranberry fruit, supple tannins, sweet fennel spice and great length.

The wine will cellar for several years and is a great match for braised lamb with roasted shallots.



About Bird in Hand Wines

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. Sustainability woven into the core of their identity, it is a story with a rich past, a bright future and an endless present, where innovative winemaking goes on against an exquisite natural backdrop.

Our story is told in our everyday vernacular, an ongoing artful exploration with nature at its core. Respecting the natural elements of the earth, we create new forms of beauty that encapsulate the holistic balance between revelry and reflection. Life at Bird in Hand is about light, space, form and joy; the give and the take, the interconnectedness to community that we reciprocate through the Bird in Hand foundation.

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.
