Bird in Hand was named Adelaide Hills Winery of the Year at the Melbourne International Wine Competition 2014 and Winestate magazine's 2014 Winemaker of the Year. This well structured Merlot is named after the "Blackbird" goldmine near the town of Woodside, South Australia, where the Nugent family winery, vineyards and olive groves are situated. With a silky mouthfeel, it has ripe succulent fruit flavours of cherries, strawberries and plum, integrated with skillful oak usage.

Background

In 1997, Andrew Nugent planted vineyards and an olive grove on 100 acres on Bird in Hand Road, Woodside. The road itself was named after the "Bird in Hand" gold mine that operated in the district in the 1850s. Four hundred metres above sea level, the vineyards face north and boast deep, well drained red earth, formed from metamorphic rock. Bird in Hand enjoys local and international recognition from lovers of exceptional wine through to wine collectors and judges, including one of our most recent awards: "World's Best Shiraz" for Nest Egg Shiraz 2010. Each accolade is a reflection of the expertise, deliberation, and passion that go into creating each Bird in Hand wine.
