Stella Bella - Skuttlebutt Shiraz Merlot Rose 2010Margaret River Rose Wine
86/100 Ray Jordan Cellar Notes The West Australian.
Crystalline ruby red colour and flushed with the spring-time aromas of seasonal red fruits - cherry, strawberry, raspberry and rose-hip.
The palate is tangy and full of these same fresh and fleshy bright red fruits, yet luscious, rich and creamy.
Food Ideas: Thai Green Chicken Curry or Warm Duck Salad.
Drink It: Now and over the next 2 years.
The antiquated nautical term for the source of drinking water on sea going vessels has the derived meaning of slang, gossip, chitta chatta, rumour etc.
The site of this life- sustaining liquid on board was also the bed from which the grapevine of social gossip did sprout. As such, the chance to catch up with friends over a glass of good wine is the perfect occasion for Skuttlebutt.
Grape: 60% Shiraz, 40% Merlot.
