Bird in Hand Two in the Bush Merlot Cabernet

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

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.

Winemaker's Notes

Appearance: Deep red hues

Nose: Plum, cherries and spice.

Palate: Plum, spice and hints of cherry finishing with silky fine tannins.

Bird in Hand Two in the Bush Merlot Cabernet

Expert Reviews

James Halliday (2010 Vintage) says
Bright colour; ripe cassis and redcurrant fruit bouquet, with a touch of cedar and black olive; the palate is firm and fleshy, varietal and poised, certainly existing at the savoury end of the spectrum, a consistent character for the Adelaide Hills.

James Halliday (2007 Vintage) says
Fragrant and spotlessly clean; a very attractive mix of red cherry, cassis, plum and spice on both bouquet and the medium-bodied palate; silky tannins add length to an elegant and stylish wine.

James Halliday (2005 Vintage) says
Fragrant; hints of new-mown grass along with black cherry on the bouquet; medium-bodied, with fine, ripe tannins, and good length.

James Halliday (2004 Vintage) says
The wine seems to carry the alcohol better than the Merlot, with sweet cassis, blackcurrant and raspberry.

James Halliday (2002 Vintage) says
Tangy, savoury; more pronounced tannins and less charming than the Merlot, though in the same family.
