BIRD in HAND Montepulciano 2015

BIRD in HAND Montepulciano 2015

AU $40 Out of stock Produced in collaboration with the endearingly passionate actress and renowned Milan-born cook Silvia Colloca, Bird in Hand’s Italian range shapes the wild pleasure of these ancient varietals through distinctive modern Australian winemaking methods. This unique bottle is designed by acclaimed Australian fashion designer Dion Lee.

This 2015 Montepulciano is fermented in small open tanks. Each fermenter is pumped over twice daily for 7 days to maximise flavour and tannin extraction.

This extremely limited wine has then been matured in tight grained French oak (20% new) for 16 months adding spice and complexity.
With deep red and purple hues, this wine has blackberry and dark olives on the nose. The mocha notes on the palate lead to a meaty, savoury palate with aniseed spice and a firm textural finish.

Cellaring for up to 5 years will reward.
