BIRD IN HAND - Shiraz 2006
Following in the footsteps of Bird in Hand Shiraz 2005 - Winestate's "Wine of the Year" (Australia and New Zealand)
The 2006 "Bird in Hand" Shiraz has been aged for over 15 months in tight grained French oak.
It is deep red with purple hues and exhibits appealing aromos of ripe blackberries, fruitcake and cinnamon. The palate is silky, elegant and richly textured. Complex flavours include plum, spice, blackcurrant and cracked black pepper.
A harmonious balance between intensity and finesse, this extremely limited release wine has the elegance and suppleness to drink on release or can be carefully cellared for future enjoyment
