Nest Egg Shiraz 2013, Bird in Hand

£64.35 per bottle

About this wine

A very limited bottling of stunning Adelaide Hills Shiraz; Nest Egg is loaded with bright parma violet and smoky bacon notes, whilst maintaining surprisingly subtle, delicate and impressive purity. On the palate there are intense flavours of crème de cassis, black berried fruit and allspice. Evocative and mouthfilling, creamy vanilla oak from 22 months in barrel elevates the palate still further and ensures longevity. Taut and expressive, this has all of the attributes required for greatness. Awesome, showstopping, cool climate Shiraz from Bird in Hand.

    string(832) "Also known as Syrah, Shiraz was the variety which introduced the world to the concentrated and masculine wines of 1990s’ Australia. Here in the Barossa Valley, Langhorne Creek, Clare Valley and McLaren Vale it produces wines of great density and richness. In South Africa there tends to be more structure and freshness with earthy tannins. It is a variety which alters in the bottle very much as a result of the individual winemaker’s philosophy, as well as reflecting the unique terroir of the estates. Great with oak, it offers lavender, kirsch, black cherry and cured meat aromas and flavours. In its native Northern Rhône it is famous for the wines of Hermitage and Côte-Rôtie, whilst in the New World can lay claim to providing Australia with its two most famous wines; Henschke’s Hill of Grace and Penfold’s Grange."
