Shiraz 2016, Bird in Hand

£19.00 per bottle

About this wine

The Bird in Hand signature range is a limited release of premium quality wines created from the best parcels of fruit from every vintage. Lifted and complex on the nose, the 2016 Shiraz shows notes of raspberry and blueberry with a touch of black pepper, vanilla and cedar. Medium to full bodied, an elegant wine with fleshy dark fruit characters, silky tannins and balanced acidity culminating in a long and rewarding finish.

    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."
