Bird Wines Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Gris 2012

20-Feb-2013

With over three decades of winemaking experience, Steve Bird is one of this country's industry stalwarts. Well-known for his supporting role with John Hancock at Morton Estate and then founding his own Thornbury label, which was acquired by Villa Maria, Steve has gone on to create Bird Wines, his hands-on venture that sees him work closely with fruit from special Marlborough sites. Steve sees the bigger picture in how wines appeal to the consumer, and his innovative big barrel approach with Pinot Noir is a point in case of innovation in vinifying this most important variety. His wines are becoming more refined as he understands his vineyard sources better. Steve is very active in export and keen in developing new markets. Life must be very busy! Here are my reviews of his new release 2012 Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Gris. www.birdwines.com
