This wine made Andrew Caillard's Gimblett Gravels Annual Vintage Selection
98 POINTS | Andrew Caillard
No one can deny the quality of Squawking Magpie’s Reserves and the Nest 2019 is another sensational release. Plush, rich and velvet smooth with plenty of complexity and charm, this a glorious premium merlot that will blossom with a few years in the cellar.
The winery writes "Single vineyard, super premium, hand selected grapes. Aged in French oak for 20 months. An exceptional wine, huge concentration, a firm structure with intense fruit characteristics. This wine will cellar for up to 20 years!"
Andrew Caillard writes "98 pts. Deep crimson. Beautiful blackcurrant mulberry chinotto espresso aromas with praline, vanilla notes. Generous, buoyant and supple with superb cassis, mulberry, boysenberry fruits, plentiful chalky tannins, attractive volume and underlying mocha, vanilla oak notes. Chocolaty/ cedar firm at the finish with seductive dark fruits and linear fresh acidity. Superb density, balance and mineral length. A standout wine."
