Squawking Magpie Gravels Chardonnay 2020

FIVE STARS 94/100 | Sam Kim, Wine Orbit
96 POINTS | Cameron Douglas MS

Robust tour de force barrel fermented Chardonnay from one of the original Gimblett Gravels stars. Vinted from the spectacular 2020 vintage, this is boldly styled premium wine with real weight and presence and those delicious creamy butterscotch flavours that fans of traditional Hawke's Bay Chardonnay adore. Expect silken mouthfeel, some lovely toasty oak complexity and a long, persistent finish. 

This wonderful single vineyard wine is already drinking well but comes with proven cellar provenance. Enjoy now or cellar with confidence over the coming decade.

Tasting Notes

Sam Kim writes "It’s gorgeously ripe and complex on the nose with golden peach, vanilla, roasted hazelnut and popcorn characters. The concentrated palate delivers terrific weight and intensity, beautifully complemented by creamy texture and fleshy mouthfeel. Delectably expressed and lingering."

Cameron Douglas MS writes "The bouquet is captivating and complex, a wine that speaks of place and time. There's a core of fruit that is plush, ripe and alluring, almost beguiling with scents of yellow stone fruits, apple and citrus peel and a smidgin of pith. On the palate the core fruit flavours are surrounded by wood and some fruit tannins, acidity is pristine, fresh adding vibrato and highlighting some natural baking spice qualities from the fruit and oak. As the wine relaxes and warms in the glass, more layers of complexity emerge. A fascinating wine, still rather youthful, very lengthy and delicious. Excellent potential, fantastic value."
