Gold Medal | Hawkes Bay Wine Awards 2016
No one can deny the quality of Squawking Magpie’s Reserves and the Nest is a knockout in 2014. Plush, rich and velvet smooth with plenty of complexity and charm, The Nest is a glorious premium Merlot.
If you want to enjoy the best the Bay has to offer then this wine will not disappoint.
The winery writes "Single vineyard, super premium, hand selected grapes. Aged in French oak for 18 months. An exceptional wine, huge concentration, a firm structure with intense fruit characteristics. This wine will cellar for up to 20 years!"
Cuisine Magazine writes "Great depth and intrigue,” opined John Belsham. Convincing proof of how well merlot can perform on the Gimblett Gravels, this is a complex, classy wine. It bursts on to the palate with real power, scattering tamarillo, tobacco and mocha notes. Bold, quite firm tannins, hold the ship steady. A big wine for a big occasion."
