After debuting at last year’s tournament, the Bird in Hand Pinot Noir Rosé has again been selected to be served at The Championships starting today.
“We had a fabulous response to our involvement in last year’s tournament,” said Bird in Hand’s Andrew Nugent. “It is very exciting that we will be there again.”
“Last year we had feedback from customers all over the world who were getting into the tennis spirit, drinking Bird in Hand Rosé and watching the tennis,” said Nugent.
“It truly is an international event, a wonderful opportunity for us to gain high-end exposure in the world’s most competitive wine market,” said Nugent.
Rosé is one of the fastest growing wine styles in the world. Its delicate flavours ideally suited to the informal dining and socialising that is an increasingly common way of life.
Bird in Hand will produce two thousand cases of Rosé from the 2008 vintage, representing a four-fold increase in recent years.
The Adelaide Hills provide perfect growing conditions for the Pinot Noir grapes used to produce Bird in Hand’s Rosé. Minimal skin contact during fermentation gives the wine a wonderful dusky pink colour and fabulous lifted strawberry and cherry aromas.
Bird in Hand has enjoyed success in recent years, sending more than 10,000 cases of wine to the demanding UK market alone last year.
“Our success in the overseas markets is a wonderful endorsement of the international appeal of our wines,” said Nugent. “We strive to make world class wines across our entire range and successes like the Wimbledon listing are fabulous endorsement that we are on the right track.”
