A serious reserve Central Pinot for a very good price. This is a little-known side project of Squawking Magpie that offers a delicious Pinot of aromatic red and dark berries, imbued with toasty earth showing a nice length, drive and balance on the palate. Central Pinot from old hands in the wine game, this is a proper wine for such a nice price.

Overview

Grape

Pinot Noir

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

Winemaker notes on current 2016 vintage

"A very distinctive and complex Pinot Noir. Notes of cherry, plum and blackberry with gentle earthy tones and a little graphite. Elegantly rich, succulent and complex layers with fine tannin structure. A soft savoury finish with excellent length and balance"
