Press Reviews

Australian winemakers Bird in Hand won the coveted trophy for red winemaker of the year at the International Wine Challenge last May, and with limited release premium quality wines like this it’s easy to see why. Sourced from low-yielding vineyards in the Adelaide Hills where the grapes are picked in the cool of the morning, this ruby red wine offers deep and rich damson flavours with notes of black olive and tobacco. And like most good merlots it can pair with a variety of dishes, from roast chicken to beef wellington.
