Bird ‘Big Barrel’ Marlborough Pinot Noir 2012

15-Jul-2013
The ‘Big Barrel’ Pinot Noir has quickly become Steve Bird’s signature wine though the rest of the Marlborough wines are worthy of the title. Steve employs the ‘Vernou Roll’ winemaking method where the barrels are gently rolled by hand, and uses large 900 L barrels for fermentation and maturation. The combination results in a higher degree of integration and greater complexities. Here I review the latest release from the 2012 vintage. www.birdwines.com
