4.5 STARS 90/100 | Sam Kim, Wine Orbit
First Flight is Squawking Magpie's entry level range and they have done a superb job at delivering quality wine well under the $20 barrier. This chardonnay is full bodied and full flavoured. The palate has plenty of tropical fruit flavours and the finish is long and lingering. A screaming bargain. Get into it.
Sam Kim writes "This is beautifully ripe and inviting on the nose showing apricot, rock melon, nougat and roasted nut characters, leading to a flavoursome palate that delivers succulent fruit intensity and creamy mouthfeel. It's delightfully styled and immediately appealing with juicy fruit flavours and elegant complexity. "
