Steve Bird Hawke’s Bay Cabernet Merlot 2014

These days, Steve Bird is well-entrenched in making a strong range of Marlborough wines based on fruit from the Dayvinleigh vineyard. Steve has a very strong relationship with the proprietors Kevin and Tracy Johnson, and the vineyard and wines are growing in recognition. The Bird Marlborough wines have a strong presence in the international market, and Steve tells me that trade in China is increasing for him. Steve’s initial winemaking was in Hawke’s Bay, and I don’t think that the love of the region has ever left him, so the introduction of a Hawke’s Bay red to add breadth to his portfolio is a welcome move for Steve. Here I review the Bird Hawke’s Bay Cabernet/Merlot 2014. The wine is due for release at the start of October.
