The Marsanne Bird on a Wire vineyard catches plenty of sun and the lean soils help the development of distinctive Marsanne characters of white flowers, spice, fennel and honey. Fermented mostly in old barrels and with full malo.
Having learned her craft at Yering Station, Hardy’s and the Rhône’s legendary JL Chave, Caroline Mooney struck out on her own establishing Bird On A Wire in 2008. Her philosophy resonates with those wines to which she was exposed in her childhood. In her own words “it’s about expressing the pedigree of the single vineyards with which she works and the specificity of each season”.
