Handpicked and given five star treatment from vineyard to glass; Nest Egg Chardonnay is a statement of the potential that Adelaide Hills holds, in equal measure to the winemaking standards set by Kym Milne MW at Bird in Hand. Elegant, supremely pure and fired by a combination of wild fermentation and part new French oak maturation; there is a powder fine, pumice-like minerality and stunning tension in the glass. On the nose, the wine displays complex and intense characteristics of white peach and grapefruit, with subtle notes of apricot, cashew and flint whilst on the palate, the wine’s intense flavour is complemented by a delicate mouthfeel, with textural oak components balanced by a natural acidity.
