Squawking Magpie Gimblett Gravels Chardonnay 2010


This 2010 vintage is an exceptional Chardonnay that offers you a sophisticated, soft textured wine with restrained flavours of grapefruit, melon and a subtle blend of nut, spicy oak and lees charaters.

2012 Air New Zealand Wine Awards - Pure Silver



From day one I have passionately believed that quality fruit in our Gimblett Gravels vineyards in the Hawkes Bay would produce outstanding wine in our bottles. 

While in the winery technical management and winemaking processes are necessarily complex, our aim has always been simple: to create quality wines worthy of fine food and great company.

That will always be our aim and I make a personal promise to diligently and unrelentingly keep on delivering just that. Life is short, so enjoy our wines today, but if you can trust yourself to cellar a bottle or two, you’ll be richly rewarded..
