Squawking Magpie Gimblett Gravels Chardonnay 2009

30-Aug-2012

A certainly strength of character is the commonality of the Squawking Magpie wines of Gavin Yort. He would no doubt attribute this to the unique growing conditions of the Gimblett Gravels district where he established his 4 ha ‘Woodlands' vineyard in 1995, and his 20 ha development of 2002. Chardonnay wines of power come from the Gimblett Gravels as exemplified by the Squawking Magpie releases, and combined with the hot and dry 2009 vintage, one has the factors contributing to a serious wine. The 2009 is the last crop from the ‘Woodlands' site, with forthcoming releases based on plantings from his new plantings. www.squawkingmagpie.co.nz
