Bird in Hand:
In 1997, an unassuming young viticulturalist and winemaker, Andrew Nugent, chanced his arm in the emerging wine region of the Adelaide Hills.

In 1997, an unassuming young viticulturalist and winemaker, Andrew Nugent, chanced his arm in the emerging wine region of the Adelaide Hills. Andrew grew up next door to Penfolds at Magill and his formative wine years were spent in South Australia’s McLaren Vale. It was here that he honed his craft as a viticulturalist, vineyard manager and winemaker. The Nugent family live and work on the picturesque property, reflecting the strong sense of community in the Adelaide Hills. Andrew exudes a quiet but steely determination to grow Bird in Hand into one of the world’s great wineries. “We live and work at the winery. We know the best thing we can do for our community is grow and produce the best wine and olives we can. Our success will be our community’s success. A high tide lifts all the boats in the bay. At Bird in Hand we’ve assembled the best team of people, we’ve painstakingly selected the perfect terroir and we’re well on our way.” The sense of community emanates from Andrews mother Joy, who is the visionary behind Nurse Link, providing palliative care in the home. She has now gone on to form NurseLink Foundation, a charity to advance nursing in the spirit of Florence Nightlingale and change the way we care for the frail and elderly. Read less

I purchased this wine in British Columbia for $34 CDN and I feel like this wine represents a really good value. A lovely crisp, refreshing dry rose wine with a fine bead. Smells of strawberry + slightly herbaceous (strawberry fields) and a slight yeasty character. Strawberry and cherry on the palate with lovely acidity. Not as simple and sweet as I would expect from a new world sparkling - some complexity and acid supporting a simple and refreshing wine that's not too sweet. I really loved this one.
