A superb Hawkes Bay Merlot dominant wine from great boutique producer. Merlot loves this region, and warm conditions in 2016 have produced a rich and succulent wine with fine, ripe tannins and real concentration. A classic style and satisfying in the glass, this is great value at this price.

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

4.5 Stars Sam Kim

The wine offers splendid fruit purity and complexity on the nose showing Black Doris plum, blackcurrant, vanilla, cedar and mixed spice notes. It is succulent and wonderfully rounded on the palate, delivering bright fruit intensity and silky mouthfeel, backed by fine grade tannins. Beautifully balanced and soothing, this is elegant yet intense with layers of delectable flavours.
