Bird in Hand Pinot Rosé 2018

Price : $20

VALUE FOR MONEY?

January 29, 2019

Bird in Hand is a family-owned producer based in the Adelaide Hills. They produce a wide range of wines but are probably best known for the one I’m reviewing today, the Bird in Hand Pinot Rosé. It’s one of those wines you tend to see everywhere you go; I couldn’t possibly fit every retailer stocking this in the buttons below.

But the real claim to fame for the Bird in Hand Pinot Rosé is that it was the official drink at Wimbledon for three years running. Not a bad achievement for a family-owned winery from South Australia, especially one that only got started in 1997.

The Review: Bird in Hand Pinot Rosé 2018

It smells like a tropical fruit salad – lychees, passion fruit and strawberries. There is a nice hit of sweetness up front and it remains in control even as some acidity creeps up on the finish. It’s a nice drink. However, that sweetness is a little too dominant for me to score it any higher at this price. Still, if you see it on special go for it, so long as you don’t mind that sweet edge.
