Magpie Estate 'Clovella' Mataro-Grenache 2015

Australia

This wine used to form the backbone of 'The Call Bag'. This is a wine we have recently stopped making and now the fruit goes to this wine which we make for one of our importers. It's now strikingly packaged by them!
It's labelled Mataro-Grenache but in fact its more like 65% Grenache 35% Mourvedre. Largely coming from the Clovella vineyard on the edge of the Gomersal sub region. Here Mataro (Mourvedre) and Grenache are co-fermented in largely older French and a little American oak. Here the wine spends some 18 months before bottling.
A blend we have always loved at Magpie. Lovely perfume of black cherry, plum, cinnamon and clove. Similar on the palate, a real antidote to some of the more primary, big wines. This is really beguiling with cherry, plum, dried herbs, lots of spice, integrated seasoned oak, long and really quite elegant. Great with spiced foods, loves new season lamb, and Mediterranean inspired dishes. Drink now and over next 5-7 years.

Magpie Estate 'SF2' Mourvedre Grenache 2016

Australia

We are experimenting at Magpie Estate ! This is our take on a 'natural' wine. Effectively other than the merest touch of sulphur at bottling and I mean the merest we have done nothing other than let this ferment naturally, rack it once after malolactic fermentation, and then again before bottling. Nothing added, no fining or filtration. I wanted this to be a kind of rustic, honest red and have bottled it in a green sparkling wine bottle with a crown cork...
It's officially low sulphur at just 13mg/l. Wines with less than 60mg/l are generally regarded as low sulphur and in fact many of the Magpie wines fit this criteria.
Grapes harvested from 3 vineyards in the Barossa, mostly in the Western Ridge sub-region.
Partial whole bunch- about 35%, and all wild (natural) yeast fermentation. Fermented in tank SF2 (small fermenter 2! hence the name) and then in old oak. Bottled unfiltered, no additions whatsoever.
c65% Mourvedre, 35% Grenache.
Lovely deep, bright colour leads to a really perfumed nose. Bright with red and black berry and cherry fruit, spice, white pepper, a touch of clove.
Similar on the palate, quite weighty with rich fruit, crunchy and bright, a touch of damson along with black raspberry and cherry, lots of spice and soft tannins. It's a big juicy mouthful, unadulterated and fresh. Drink young.

Magpie Estate 'The Fakir' Grenache 2012

Magpie Estate 'The Fakir' Grenache 2012

Australia

The latest Fakir!
This all comes from the Neldner vineyards in Gomersal, in this vintage nothing really stood out to bottle a Gomersal so all the grapes have gone into the Fakir, including declassified Gomersal.
As ever a combination of old and newer oak, using hogshead and larger puncheons
Lovely spice- nutmeg, clove, cinnamon on the nose, berry fruits and seasoned French oak.
Bright and juicy on the palate, the fruit has a lovely crunchy juicy feel, lots of spice and some integrated creamy oak that gives the wine length and texture, whilst still allowing the fruit to sing. Delicious now and over the next 5 years, again very food versatile - works well with spicy foods as well as more typical richer dishes.

Magpie Estate 'The Fixed Gear' Grenache 2016

Australia

We are experimenting at Magpie Estate ! This is our take on a 'natural' wine. Effectively other than a small touch of sulphur at bottling we have done little other than let this ferment naturally, rack it once after malolactic fermentation, and then again before bottling. Nothing added, just a very coarse (as in gentle) filtration.
It's officially low sulphur at just 26mg/l. Wines with less than 50mg/l are generally regarded as low sulphur and in fact many of the Magpie wines fit this criteria.
Grapes harvested from 3 vineyards in the Barossa, mostly in the Western Ridge and Gomersal sub-regions.
All co-fermented, around 30% of the grapes were whole bunch, all wild (natural) yeast fermentation. 90% fermented in tank, 10% in old barrels.
It's a beautifully pure, almost floral expression of Grenache. Lovely served cool. Red berries, flowers, white pepper and other spices on the crunchy.
Crunchy raspberry, cherry and sarsaparilla on the palate, pepper spice, a hint of dried herb with a lovely vibrant crunchy character.
Best enjoyed whilst youthful - also a versatile food wine.

Magpie Estate 'The Wit and Shanker' Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

Australia

When we showcased the new Magpie Estate arrivals in the summer, this was just magnificent - so much beautifully pure and expressive fruit and full of energy on the palate. Bright and juicy with blackcurrant pastille, cassis again a hint typical mint, lovely fruit sweetness with integrated toasty oak and hints of mocha. DY

The Rude Mechanicals 'Three Monkeys' by Magpie Estate Grenache-Shiraz-Mataro 2016

Australia

We were asked to make this style of wine by one of our importers under their series of 'Rude Mechanical' wines.
A bright, juicy style of GSM. 70% Grenache, 20% Shiraz, 10% Mataro.
From several vineyards around the Barossa. We utilised several different parcels- bright juicy wild yeast Grenache alongside other lots aged in old and new oak.
It's deliberately made to be enjoyable young- lots of black cherry fruit with lots of spice and crunchy tannins. Good weight- you can see it's mainly Grenache, but the other grapes give it an almost floral vibrancy to it. Would make a great pizza wine!!

Australia

Good vintage for Mourvedre/Mataro. Coming from 2 vineyards - the majority from Schiller who is producing some quality fruit. Aged in larger puncheons, all second fill American and French. 3% Shiraz blended in to give more complexity.
Lovely warm spicy nose. Mulling spices, plum, black cherry and a touch of oak.
Medium to full bodied, classic Mourvedre savoury, almost meaty character with lots of lovely black fruits, hints of clove and pepper, oak in the background giving the wine extra depth and a gently creamy character, good acidity keeps it fresh and lively
