95 Points & Top 100 Wines of 2018 James Halliday
Skuttlebutt wines are made to be enjoyed. A kaleidoscope of the Margaret River region, these wines are fresh, fruity and flavoursome.
Skuttlebutt is a nautical term for the source of fresh drinking water on a sailing ship where people gather to catch up on the gossip and goings-on. To reflect the nature of this everyday social gathering, we create these wines as the perfect excuse to gather and Skuttlebutt with friends. Like fresh water on a ship, these wines are extremely pleasing and essential for existence.
Subtle pink with salmon hues. Exceptionally lifted with aromas of musk, freshly picked strawberries, watermelon, pink lady apples and Turkish delight.
The palate is bright and refreshing. Watermelon, raspberry and strawberry follow through with some rounded texture to compliment food.
“The bright, clear crimson colour is a good start. We don’t know the percentages of the shiraz and tempranillo used to make this wine, but the cherry flavours are seamless, the palate crisp and long, the slippery acidity adding to a thoroughly persuasive parcel for lazing around with in spring.” – 95 Points & Top 100 Wines of 2018 James Halliday
