Chardonnay 2022, Bird in Hand

£19.95 per bottle

About this wine

Bird in Hand Chardonnay 2022 is pale straw in colour, on the nose the wine is nuanced and complex, evoking intense white peach, honey spice and subtle hazelnut aromas.  On the palate, this Chardonnay showcases intense flavours of fleshy nectarine, toasted cashew, and subtle oak spice, with a creamy texture and precise acid that gives persistence.

The Chardonnay grapes for this wine were hand-picked in the cool early morning from Bird in Hand’s vineyard at Woodside, as well as other premium blocks in Mt Torrens, and Woodside.  Grapes were carefully sorted, before being whole bunched pressed directly into French oak barrels. Barrels spent 9 months on their yeast lees prior to selective blending by the winemaking team. The 2022 Bird in Hand Chardonnay consists of 40% new oak from premium tight grained French oak with the balance from barrels 1 – 4 years old.

The Bird in Hand signature range is a limited release of premium quality wines created from the best parcels of fruit from every vintage. These wines present the character to age impeccably whilst delivering qualities that can be enjoyed today.

Food pairing: The perfect partner to scallop chowder and new season lamb loin with summer vegetables

Alcohol: 12.91% ABV

From crisp, flinty Chablis styles to full-bodied, oaky, rich Napa Valley Chardonnay it is a variety which has the ability to morph according to the climate or winemaking philosophy. It also has the capacity to produce amongst the greatest white wines in the world. Some praise indeed for this chameleon variety, the likes of which may only truly be matched by Riesling or Chenin Blanc."
