Squawking Magpie ‘The Gravels’ Syrah 2016

08-Dec-2017

Gavin Yortt, one of the pioneer growers in the Gimblett Gravels in Hawke’s Bay, with vineyards dating back to 1981, has had his Squawking Magpie brand operating since the 1999 vintage. A passionate supporter of the region and especially the Gimblett Gravels district, Gavin and his wines have won many major awards. His best wines come from his 20 ha vineyard, but he utilises fruit from other parts of the region. ‘The Gravels’ tier, introduced last year pays homage to the gravel soils of Hawke’s Bay with "the intention to over-deliver in value”. With the experienced Jenny Dobson as his winemaker, Gavin achieves him aim. Here, I review the new release ‘The Gravels’ Syrah 2016. www.squawkingmagpie.co.nz
