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

94/100 Cameron Douglas MS

"Great colour and fantastic bouquet with aromas of freshly squeezed raspberries and ripe black currants, vanilla, clove, toasty barrel and stony soils all vying for attention. On the palate - dry, tense, youthful, fruity, textured and flavourful with raspberries and currants, oak, baking spices and a moment of marmite. Firm tannins, plenty of acidity, lengthy finish and nicely complex. A wine for the cellar still - best enjoyed from 2022 through 2026+." Drink 2022 - 2026+

Yvonne Lorkin (2017 vintage)

"Don't let the lighter, crimson colour fool you, because there's a heck of a lot going on, flavour-wise. White pepper, violets, juicy red berries, cherry and soft, soft tannins make this one seriously easy, approachable syrah from the Squawking Magpie team. The acidity is fresh, hints of earthiness erupt in the mid-palate and there’s good length of flavour carrying it through."
