Wine Note

Magpie Estate 'The Beak'

The latest release of our best selling red wine.
It's a slight departure this year. A blend of 62 % Shiraz, 25% Grenache and 13% Sangiovese. The Sangiovese being a new part of the blend. We bought a parcel of Sangiovese and whilst it made a decent wine on its own we liked it more as a blending component.
As ever the Shiraz and Grenache are from several growers.
Bright red cherry with a hint of plum and spice on the nose.
Really juicy and vibrant with red and black fruits a touch of herb, spice, and creamy oak. Maybe a lighter expression than some previous Beak reds but maybe the most fruit forward and drinkable yet.
Hugely versatile food wise and an easy drink on its own .
