One of the most famous wine regions worldwide, the Margaret River Wine Region produces 20% of Australia's premium wines. While it is best known for its Cabernet Sauvignon, the Margaret River wine region is also renowned for producing some of the country's best Chardonnay.
As a wine region, Margaret River is characterised by its Mediterranean climate, consistently producing outstanding wines with alluring aromatics, intense flavours and elegant structure.
Within this region there's this winery, Stella Bella Wines.
Reinforcing its reputation as one of the premium wine
producing regions of the world,
the Stella Bella Winery aims to capture
the essence of Margaret River,
from their signature regional wine styles,
to something for the more adventurous.
Let us take the chance to introduce 2 unique wines from their portfolio, “Skuttlebutt” Shiraz Cabernet Sauvignon and “Skuttlebutt” Sauvignon Blanc Semillon.
So what does Skuttlebutt mean, you ask? 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. These Skuttlebutt wines are the perfect reason to gather and “Skuttlebutt” with friends over a drink or two!
A kaleidoscope of the Margaret River region, these wines are designed to be fresh and approachable to suit your everyday lifestyle. Like fresh water on a ship, these wines are extremely pleasing and essential for existence.
"Skuttlebutt" Shiraz Cabernet Sauvignon
A dark plum red in colour with a brilliant purple hue, the Skuttlebutt Shiraz Cabernet Sauvignon is a generously proportioned wine that has an enticing bouquet of ripe blackcurrant, mixed berries, exotic spices, cocoa and subtle oak overtones. A great wine to toast to!
"Skuttlebutt" Sauvignon Blanc Semillon
If Chardonnay is your pick, the Skuttlebutt Sauvignon Blanc Semillon is a real crowd-pleaser. This deliciously fruity sweet wine has a finish of freshness, with lifted aromatics of zesty citrus and nashi pear. On the palate, lime and nectarine from the semillon are complemented by rambutan with a tropical passionfruit lift. Sounds like a great conversation-starter!
