MEET STEVE BIRD
Family is at the heart of the wine-growing tradition and so it is at Steve Bird Winery and Vineyards.
My name is on every bottle and our family is dedicated to growing the best grapes our pristine New Zealand environment can provide. My determination is to craft wines that capture place and time and let nature be the hero.
THE STEVE BIRD RANGE
The Steve Bird range are our signature wines. Hand-selected parcels of grapes are crafted by Steve to capture the qualities of a specific, exceptional location and to reflect nature’s unique influence with every vintage.
WORDS OF APPRECIATION
``This is a gently full, sweet-fruited Pinot Noir with flavours of raspberries and liquorice, and a fine, grainy texture. Serve with poultry and pork dishes over the next 4-5+ years.``- Raymond Chan ~ Steve Bird ‘Big Barrel’ Marlborough Pinot Noir 2014
``...this has a soft, rounded core of light yellow stonefruit flavours with subtle hints of nuts, florals and honeysuckle... Serve with seafood and poultry over the next 2-3 years.``- Raymond Chan ~ Steve Bird Gisborne Pinot Gris 2015
``This is a fulsome Cabernet/Merlot with robust structure and savoury red fruits with game and earth complexities. Match with slow-cooked game meat dishes over the next 6+ years.``- Raymond Chan ~ Steve Bird Hawkes Bay Cabernet Merlot 2014
THE MANU RANGE
Manu is the Maori word for both bird and kite, merging Steve’s family’s indigenous heritage with the distinctive style and quality of wine from New Zealand’s most celebrated wine regions. The Manu logo is an interpretation of ‘Te Manu Tukutuku’, a beautifully crafted Maori kite, representing Manu wines’ craftsmanship, elegance and the pure nature of New Zealand.
