Out of stock

A rich and concentrated Hawkes Bay Syrah, this serious single vineyard from Gimblett Gravels was properly ripened and sunken in good oak to create a rich and brooding but perfectly balanced, age-worthy offering. A full-blown, old-school stunner and a hell of lot of wine for $30 something. Get in quick before 2013 dries up!

Overview

Grape

Syrah

Its Origins

Squawking Magpie Owner and Director Gavin Yortt planted the main Woodland’s vineyard in 1995, with further holdings in 2002 extending the focus on Hawkes Bay classic grapes such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah. They are members of Sustainable Winegrowing New Zealand and maintain a strong focus on cellaring wines and a quality-driven (rather than brand-driven) market strategy, which begins with rigorous vineyard management. Though not shouting from every shelf, on quality-for-value Squawking Magpie wines are often among the best Hawkes Bay has to offer.

What The Critics Say

Michael Cooper

"A distinguished, single-vineyard red, grown in the Gimblett Gravels of Hawke’s Bay and French oak-aged."

96/100 Bob Campbell

"Dense, powerful Syrah with red-fleshed plum, raspberry, new leather, liquorice, black pepper and spicy oak flavours. An heroic red with a firm structure of ripe tannins that are smothered by fruit and alcohol sweetness to make the wine accessible, but give it good cellaring potential. Drink 2015 to 2024."
