The antiquated nautical term for the source of 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.

Light, clear crimson; the fragrant red fruit bouquet flows into a fresh, light- to medium-bodied palate supported by fine tannins and just a whisker of oak. Ready right now.

Winery Tasting Notes
Vermillion in hue with purple highlights.
An expansive, warm wine roused with scents of rich crimson and soft ref fruits, licquorice, mocha and sweet spices. Fine and chalky fruit tannin impart a gently grip finish.
Goes perfectly with your favourite pizza or pasta dish.
Barbecued mushrooms and lamb cutlets
