    Critique Review

    Margaret River does this style so well it would be hard to deny at any price, let alone this. It’s made in the vineyard, vinification without any embellishment - except perhaps a hint of sweetness. No matter; the blend of kaffir lime, white peach and passionfruit is balanced and freshened by crisp acidity.

    Vineyard Info

    The word skuttlebutt has its origin in the antiquated, nautical term for the source of drinking water on sea-going vessels. It has evolved into the colloquial term for gossip, rumour and idle chatter. This transformation can be explained by the very nature of social gatherings. Crowding around the skuttlebutt to obtain a drink of water was part of everyday life and the opportunity for idle chatter amongst the crew was the inevitable outcome and so the word became synonymous. These are classic wine styles that can be easily enjoyed everyday, the perfect excuse to Skuttlebutt with friends!

    Stella Bella’s five small distinctive vineyards are located throughout southern Margaret River, an area of our region chosen for its cool climate and ability to produce elegant, aromatic and medium bodied wines with personality and precision. Peak summer & low winter temperatures are moderated by extra cloud cover & ocean winds. Resulting in a longer cooler ripening period.
