2011 Wines from Bird in Hand
A quality cooler climate Pinot Noir Rose hand crafted with six hours of skin contact resulting in a vibrant, translucent, deep ruby-coloured wine with powerful varietal aromas & flavours of cherry & strawberry and balanced by a crisp, lively finish.
The bright and zesty lemon characteristics from the Semillon are enhanced and made more complex by the intense tropical aromas and flavours of the Sauvignon Blanc. Crisp, fresh and full flavoured, this wine is best enjoyed young.
The palate mirrors the abundant lime and lifted aromas and provides bright, crisp acidity ensuring lenght and structure.
A vibrant and complex cooler climate Sauvignon Blanc with excellent varietal definition. it exhibits tropical fruit flavours including passionfruit, grapefruit and melon. The palate is fresh and intense finishing long, liveley and crisp.
Made from Adelaide hill's Pinot Nior, this sparkling wine has strawberry and cherry aromas accompanied by a floral lift. Clean, vibrant strawberry flavours are enhanced by the very fine persistant bead.
The Two in the bush range from Bird in Hand is a gift horse looking at you squarely in the eye. It’s reliable, more than drinkable and is just about the best thing you can pair with gourmet lamb sausages. It runs the gamut of black fruits with hints of cedar and slight oak. The bright fruit of Merlot helps balance out the structure of the Cabernet brilliantly.
The 2010 vintage in South Australia continues to gather acclaim and here’s the proof in the bottle. What you have here is a slurpable Shiraz that everyone wants to refill their glasses with. It kicks off with exotic fruit and spice aromas before mixing up flavours of blackberry, pepper and mocha chocolate. It’s balanced and long and will keep in the medium term but it’s unlikely you’ll keep your hands off it.
The Honeysuckle in the title should give you a hint that this is a sweeter style of Riesling. Bird in Hand has taken pristine fruit to create a wine that is mouth-watering with impressive palate weight and just the thing to pair with Asian-spiced dishes. Lifted, fruit aromas on the nose, a wine that sows immaculate balance between fruit, sweetness and acidity.
Merlot is a funny old beast. In Australia it has suffered from a PR crisis but the best ones are worth latching on to and worth shouting about. This one from Adelaide Hills’ legends Bird In Hand shows just how juicy and drinkable this style can be, especially with some barbecued ribs. It shows just the right amount of plum fruit and plush texture and finishes with supple tannins.
At Cracka we love to find wines that are truly representative of the place they hail from. This Shiraz from the Adelaide Hills shows why the region is on the up and up when it comes to making expressive cool climate Shiraz. What you find here is the vibrancy of black fruits and the exotic aromas of white pepper. It continues on the palate providing a scintillating ride that includes firm tannins and a supple texture that makes it the perfect wine for lighter bodied meat dishes like pork.
Deep red colour with a good purple rim. Dominant oaky aromas. The palate is also showing a lot of oak, in a walnutty savoury style, but the middle is rather hollow and it lacks concentration and line. Oak wins the race. There is a touch of elegance. It may be more rewarding in a year or two.
