A rich Merlot from a renowned Hawke's Bay producer, the Nest Merlot is a serious mid-level offering. Great plantings in Gimblett Gravels produce a wine full of succulent black and red fruits, spice, firm ripe tannins and toasty character reflective of 18 months in French Oak. Owner Gavin Yortt strives for quality in the vineyard and bottle over marketing fanfare, so the value is palpable.

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.
