Bird in Hand Sparkling Pinot Noir, Adelaide Hills 2018
A softer style of fizz, with aromas and flavours of strawberries and cream. There is a creamy, fine mousse and a light, elegant finish. Simply delicious.

Ring the changes with a tasty red fizz: it’s the traditional bubbly in Australia on Christmas Day, usually made from shiraz, but try a lighter and less demanding pinot noir instead. I loved this night-harvested, juicy, spicy plum-packed sparkler from Adelaide Hills.
The delicious clarity of the raspberry and cherry flavour in this tank-fermented sparkling wine sets it apart. It has a slight pink blush and a moreish, silky mouthfeel. Coming in at a price point below many champagnes, this is a winner for summer.
[a] flavoursome rosé as it is bound to raise yours and your beloved’s pulse rates on the 14th.
Delicious! Delicately pale with pristine flavours of raspberries and cherries, this is a delightful Aussie bubbly for Christmas.
