FIVE STARS 95/100 | 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 stylish and delicious at once, showing ripe apricot, rockmelon, nougat, oatmeal and roasted hazelnut aromas on the nose. The powerfully concentrated palate exhibits poise as well as richness, wonderfully enhanced by plush texture and multi-layered mouthfeel. It’s splendidly structured by bright acidity, finishing persistent and expansive."
