Squawking Magpie fully expresses the distinctive regional characteristics and wonderful array of flavours that Marlborough has to offer. Sauvignon Blanc from the choicest sites are assembled and transferred to controlled fermenters at managed temperatures to capture and retain the excitement of Marlborough's unique terroir.
