A fresh new look for Skuttlebutt

SKs web

At our Cellar Door we've noticed a lot of people comment "Oh, we didn't know Stella Bella made Skuttlebutt" so we thought it was time for a fresh new look but retaining the recognisable Skuttlebutt tap. We've had our first two new releases with the new label in the last month, the Skuttlebutt Rose 2014 and the Skuttlebutt Sauvignon Nuovo 2014 and they've been very well received, we hope you like them too!

Vintage Report 2014

Vintage report 2014

2014 vintage began on 05 February with Chardonnay from Block 16 of our Isca Vineyard. This is the block that the winery and vineyard crew meticulously shoot thinned together. We fermented this wine with all natural yeast - or “wild’ as its known and the wine looks stunning. Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon followed closely after the Chardonnay, all with magnificent natural acidity and an abundance of flavour.  The ripening period for January was a little warmer than normal but February and March cooled down marginally resulting in amazing conditions to ripen all varieties. The weather gods were certainly on our side again this year with only 2mm of rain sprinkling our white grapes and less rain than average by the end of vintage - the rain we did have caused no issues for the robust Cabernet Sauvignon, the final fruit to be harvested. We look forward to tasting those 2014 wines!
