Bird in Hand Two in the Bush Chardonnay - Adelaide Hills
The Two in the Bush Chardonnay from the Bird in Hand Winery has been expertly crafted by Kym Milne MW. The bouquet is fine and fairly intense with melon and peach dominating with hints of some citrus fruits too. On the palate it is elegant and fine with some nutty notes combining with the pure fruit flavours and the refreshing acidity making the palate come alive. There is a trace of oak in the finish but this merely supports rather than dominates. All in all this is a very fine Chardonnay.

2016 vintage was excellent in the Adelaide Hills region of South Australia and the fruit came into the winery in top condition and early too. Fermetation was done with wild yeats, 70% in stainless steel vats and 30% in used oak barrels where a little batonnage was done.
