Owner Gavin Yortt along with winemaker Jenny Dobson are producing a seriously good range of wines and this new 2020 vintage Chatterer Syrah highlights the quality and value being made at Squawking Magpie. Dark and juicy with a depth of flavour that belies its modest price.
Winery notes (2020 Vintage)
"Dark and concentrated showing peppery and toasty oak characters, this wine has supple tannins with a firm, smooth and spicy finish. These grapes have been produced in the world renowned Hawkes Bay growing region, and the quality and value has already drawn interest far and wide."
Rated Excellent & 95/100 Cameron Douglas MS, November 2021 (2020 Vintage)
"Fantastic core of dark ruby and purple hues with bold, ripe and spicy aromas of black berry and black currant, purple flowers and peppery spices, toasty barrel spices of vanilla and clove. Youthful, complex and enticing. Equally bold and expressive on the palate with flavours of dark berries and peppery spices, raspberry, black currant and violets rest on a core of stony mineral qualities. Well made and ready to drink from late 2022 through 2029+. Fantastic value pricing as well."
