Magpie Estate 'The Election' Shiraz 2016

Magpie Estate 'The Election' Shiraz 2016

Australia

First release since 2010. As ever it’s a barrel selection of our best lots. Coming from 3 vineyards, 2 in Western Ridge and 1 barrel of Eden Valley Shiraz in the blend for complexity. Aged for c22 months in a combination of 300 litre Hogsheads and 475 Puncheons. The blend ended up being all new oak barrels 75% French, 25% American.
It’s a voluptuous rich Barossa Shiraz, dark berry and plum fruit with lots of spice, some plain chocolate and toasty mocha oak. Long and well balanced, made to age, but has a hedonistic appeal that will mean it drinks on release.

Magpie Estate 'The Fakir' Grenache 2019

Magpie Estate 'The Fakir' Grenache 2019

Australia

The latest Fakir! The first since 2012 and very different in style.
The Grenache largely comes from the Neldner vineyards in Gomersal, we added a portion from Rolf's Riedl vineyard, this was wild yeast fermented with some whole bunches used. With the traditional fermented Neldner portion giving the wine weight and richness, the Riedl fruit gives the wine the added dimension of freshness, perfume and bright red berry note.
The various parts were largely aged in older neutral oak (Riedl in tank for first 8 months), with just a tiny portion of new French oak used for the Neldner wine.
The result is a lovely juicy red with some classic Grenache spice. A hint of oak with soft tannins. Made to enjoy now but will drink well for at least 3 years.
"This has a fresh, lively, raspberry nose with light florals, some blue fruit and boysenberries, too. The palate has very round, soft and juicy raspberry fruit flesh and light vanilla to close. " 91 pts Nick Stock, James Suckling

Magpie Estate 'The Gomersal' Grenache 2014

Magpie Estate 'The Gomersal' Grenache 2014

Australia

This is Magpie Estate's premium Grenache, at Magpie we only release the wine when we are totally convinced of the quality. The grapes come from the Neldner vineyard in the Gomersal sub region. These are 55+ year old vines.
We selected the three best puncheon's, all 2 year old French oak, and at blending added 3% Eden Valley Shiraz.
Classic Gomersal nose- raspberry, plum, cinnamon and clove spice, white pepper and some creamy oak too. The nose really evokes the floral and spicy characters so typical of the Barossa Valley.
Bright and juicy with strawberry and raspberry fruit, black cherry and lots of spice- 5 spice, cinnamon, clove, white pepper and creamy oak. Good acidity too means it's fresh and bright and will evolve well over the next 3-4 years.

Magpie Estate 'The Malcolm' Shiraz 2017

Australia

The first release of ‘The Malcolm’ Shiraz was the 1994 vintage and it quickly became a legendary wine with the follow on 1995 and 1996 releases. Our goal has always been to push the boundaries of Shiraz - to pick ultra-ripe and then age in all new oak for longer than typical maturation. Importantly the final wine, although considered powerful and full-bodied, was
superbly well balanced and complex. This is the first release since the 2012 wine.
The 2017 Malcolm is quite unique in that it is the first wine made using only the highest quality fruit from our recently acquired, first estate vineyard, the Smalltown vineyard, in the
prized Ebenezer sub-region of northern Barossa Valley. We selected just a few rows from the original 1992 plantings that quickly looked like they were going to special.The vines are dry grown and cluster thinned for maximum flavour intensity and the bunches were left to hang longer than is typical for fruit used in other Magpie Estate wines. After fermentation, the wine was aged for 15 months in new French oak puncheons, and then racked into new American oak puncheons for the final 15 months of maturation.
Very rich, dark cherry red in the glass. The nose offers up intense fruit aromas of black cherry and plum, alongside toasty mocha oak, liquorice and spice. Rich and textured with a velvety
palate. This is an intensely flavoured Barossa Shiraz with great complexity and tannins that give the wine great length. The 2017 is quite an elegant style, yet still a very rich Shiraz, showing the depth of fruit of the 2017 vintage. Voluptuous, hedonistic and drinkable now with
good aeration, although the wine clearly has many years ahead of it.
The Malcolm Shiraz is only released in the finest vintages in small volume to ensure the quality standard is maintained, and the reputation for capturing the true essence of Barossa Shiraz
upheld. This release will rank alongside the best Malcolm's we have made, we are genuinely excited about this wine!!
110 dozen produced.

Magpie Estate 'The Sack' Barossa Valley Shiraz 2016

Australia

We have just done an offer on Sack 2017, but i am delighted to have the 2016 back in, and from such a great vintage.
The 2016 Sack comes from 3 different vineyards and contains around 10% Eden Valley Shiraz. As ever aged in a mixture of American and French oak both 300 litre and 475 litre barrels, around 30% new oak this year, the balance in mostly 1 year old barrels but also some older oak. in the blend.
2016 was a really good vintage. . The wine has lovely black cherry, ripe plum, hints of cassis with spice on the nose, some creamy oak and a hint of chocolate.
Juicy and opulent on the palate- black cherry, plum and blackcurrant with some hints of red berry fruit too, subtle notes of liquorice and black pepper with some creamy oak. Tannins are ripe. It's a medium bodied style of Sack which is drinking well now and over the next 5-7 years.

"Barossa blackberry and toast with inflections of dried fruits, orange peel included, to the point where the famed 'Xmas cake' descriptor is apt. It's not a huge release but there's ample flavour here and the balance of all components is good too. A wine you can rely on." 92 pts Campbell Mattinson Halliday Wine Companion 2020

Magpie Estate 'The Wit and Shanker' Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

Australia



Our first release and the grapes all came from our new estate Smalltown vineyard in Ebenzer. 25 year old vine Cabernet Sauvignon vines on the property have turned out to make wine as good as we had hoped. Low yielding and picked ripe, but not overripe. Nearly 24 months in mostly French oak, with a small amount in American, a large proportion of the oak was new as the wine really soaked the oak up and it still preserved all the intense cassis and red berry fruit.
Voluptuous and delicious now however it will age for a decade or more.
"Crushed and destemmed, 22 months in 75% French and 25% American oak. A serious medium to full-bodied cabernet with powerful blackcurrant and bay leaf/black olive notes on the finish." 93pts James Halliday Jan 2020
