From the bottle:
“box of birds colloq
somewhat curiously, this is a standard answer to the inquiry “How are you?” and signifies that the speaker is cheerful, happy or in fine health.
[ORIGIN New Zealand]
Nestled deep in the South Pacific, New Zealand’s wine regions enjoy a cool, dry, maritime climate ideally suited to fine wine production.
Fittingly from a country that was once ruled by birds, Box O’ Birds is a selection of our finest regional varieties.
Beautifully balanced, this wine showcases the fine aromatics which New Zealand wines are renowned for. To feel a ‘Box O’ Birds’, enjoy this wine with food and friends over the next three years.
As a remote island in the Pacific Ocean (and the world’s southernmost wine producing region), kiwis have a pioneering spirit and a style for doing things in their own, sometimes quirky, way. One of their greatest achievements in the wine world was to create a unique and extremely tasty style of Sauvignon Blanc. From the name, to the aroma, to the taste, today’s wine is the perfect representation of the New Zealand style.
The 2013 Box O’ Birds Sauvignon Blanc begins with pretty classic New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc aromas. There’s lots of very pleasant gooseberry, lemongrass and tropical fruit, which all continue when tasting this crisp and tasty wine. You’ll also find a fantastic lively acidity. What really sets this wine apart, however, is the excellent and very long finish. This is New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc at its best.
