Skuttlebutt Sauvignon Blanc Semillon 2017

Margaret River, Western Australia   |    750ml   |    12%
Margaret River's Stella Bella has excelled over the past decade with a modern, creative and non-compromise approach to winemaking. Their Skuttlebutt range is all about affordable wines that are the essence of the Margaret River region.

This 2017 Skuttlebutt Sauvignon Blanc Semillon is another quality example of this popular Margaret River blend. On the nose are plenty of lifted aromatics of exotic tropical fruits, orange blossom and kaffir lime leaf. On the palate lime and pear from the semillon are complemented by guava with a tropical passionfruit lift, finishing with freshness and a delicious fruit sweetness.

"94 Points. Has it both ways: tropical fruits of all kinds headed by sauvignon blanc's passionfruit on the bouquet, palate and finish, semillon's firmer hand on the tiller throughout the journey providing shape and texture. Great value, of course. Drink By: 2019 Price: $18.00 Date Tasted: 11 Sep 2017 Alcohol: 12%" - James Halliday, winecompanion.com.au.

While the brands are differentiated by sub-regions, vineyards, style, price and curious names, the objective is always to create wines of expression, personality and interest with an emphasis on unique imaging.
