About this wine

Bird in Hand’s Italian Series Gift pack of the Montepulciano 2019 and Pinot Grigio 2021, is an exclusive limited release.  These stunning bottles were created in collaboration with acclaimed Australian fashion designer Dion Lee.

Bird in Hand’s exclusive ‘Italian Series’ seeks to enhance the unique characteristics of these ancient Italian varietals through modern Australian winemaking.  The winemaking focuses on purity of varietal expression, freshness, and vitality in a contemporary way that particularly lends itself to enjoyment with food.

Bird in Hand Pinot Grigio 2021

The Adelaide Hills is renowned for many of Australia’s finest white varietals and the cool climate is an ideal environment for producing Italian style Pinot Grigio.  Light to pale in colour, with a green hue, this Pinot Grigio has bright and lifted aromatics of green pears, lemon blossom and a hint of musk.

Food pairing: Crisp, fresh and full flavoured, this Pinot Grigio is best enjoyed young. It is a great partner to Italian antipasti and fresh seafood dishes such as crayfish and scallops.

Alcohol: 12.5% ABV

This wine is vegan friendly.

Bird In Hand Montepulciano 2019

The Montepulciano grapes for this wine were harvested from a single vineyard parcel in Kersbrook Adelaide Hills, a warmer site with rocky, well-drained soils perfectly suited for Italian varietals.  A very deep coloured wine, with vibrant purple hues, on the nose it is dark, brooding and youthful, with notes of blackcurrant, anise and subtle dried herbs.  On the palate, the wine is medium-bodied, with generous fruit weight and flavour complemented by a rustic tannin profile typical of Italian varieties.

Food pairing: The Montepulciano is a great match for red meats, such as a juicy scotch fillet or traditional Italian osso buco.

Ageing potential: Cellaring for up to five years will reward.

Alcohol: 14% ABV
