Cabernet Sauvignon 2019, Bird in Hand

£19.35 per bottle

About this wine

Site selection for Adelaide Hills Bird in Hand Cabernet Sauvignon is absolutely essential. The 2019 vintage was from a low yielding block in Macclesfield in south-eastern fringe of the Adelaide Hills.  An intensely complex yet varietal Cabernet with notes blackcurrant, plum and violet florals complemented by nuanced and classy oak characters- cedar, mocha and spearmint.  This is a medium bodied Cabernet style with structure and elegance. The mid-palate offers generous weight and depth, all framed by long, silky tannins.

Ageing potential:  The wine will cellar for several years.

So multifaceted and so adaptable, it is as happy in the Pauillac vineyards of Château Latour as it is in the high altitude vineyards of the Andes. So suited to oak and with a firm tannic backbone, it is very often utilised as part of a blend. Though Bordeaux is its natural home, it has spread through the wine world, finding notable homes in Stellenbosch, Coonawarra, Langhorne Creek and the Barossa Valley to name but a few."
