Squawking Magpie owner Gavin Yortt and winemaker Jenny Dobson are producing some excellent wines and with a quality vintage such as 2021, there is some superb value to be had. From the Gimbletts Gravels The Chatterer Merlot Malbec has plenty of depth in colour and flavour with a satiny, chalky texture.

Winery Notes (2021 Vintage)
"This wine is deep in colour with a layered fragrant nose of ripe plum and cassis with lifted vanilla, cedar and tobacco notes. The palate has a rich velvet texture with excellent structure, ripe black fruits and cassis flavours with a long full finish. Suggested food pairing: Food: navarin of smoked lamb neck, confit root vegetables, green harissa, pistachio."

Rated Excellent & 93/100 Cameron Douglas MS, November 2023 (2021 Vintage)
"Excellent colour with hues of ruby and purple, a pink rim and some colour staining of the tears. Aromas of boysenberries and dark plums, chocolate, fresh blackcurrant and purple peach flesh. Layers of wood spice and barrel smoke, this is a bouquet of complexity and power. Firm and dry on the palate with core flavours that mirror the bouquet, bold tannins and acid line reflect a wine very much in development. The finish is powerful and long, a wine that needs more development time with best drinking likely from 2026 through 2036."

Top Value & Buy of the Week, Bob Campbell MW, The Real Review, October 2023 (2021 Vintage)
"Intense, fine-grained red wine with blackberry, cassis, black Doris plum, cacao powder, new leather and cedar wood aromas. Density and structure suggests an ability to age well. Excellent value at this price."
