Over the years, there have been reports of mysterious large birds around our vineyards. Could it be the elusive Moa thought to be extinct? Or are they just …Fat Birds? I guess if they were looking for great grapes, they came to the right place. The wines we have crafted in their name are well rounded, tasty, and full of character (probably not unlike the birds themselves!). Appealing on the nose with peach, citrus and creamy flavours. Food Match – Chicken.
Colour: Pale straw. Nose: Very aromatic, with attractive lifted white peach and nectarine notes. Palate: Vibrant stonefruit and citrus characters, with good weight, and a long finish with subtle biscuity characters.
Aromas and flavours of baked yellow fruits with nectarine and peach dominating. A layer of nuty oak flavours, burnt butter, and toasty wood combinations. Medium acidity, quite weighty with medium length.
This elegant, beautifully balanced Chardonnay is a delightful expression of the distinctive Hawkes Bay style. With lifted aromas of stonefruit and citrus, the wine is bursting with white peach and nectarine flavours, with a touch of oak.
Buttery, rich, oak, California, US
Yellow-gold hue in the glass with a green apple and pear bouquet. These aromas classically characterise this wine as Clarksburg, while honeycomb and vanilla heighten the first impression. The rich, round entry rolls into a viscous and silky mouthfeel, surrounded by Asian pears and Honeycrisp apples. The finish lingers long and soft, like the wafting aromas of grandma's warm apple pie.
