Natalie's Score: 90/100

A 51% Semillon and 49 Sauvignon Blanc white blend from the Margaret River wine region. Dry and zesty with a riot of flavours on the palate. Look for lime zest, ripe nectarine, guava, passionfruit, grassy, herbal and mineral flavours with a mouth-watering finish on the palate. Skuttlebutt is a nautical term for the source of water on sea going vessels and has since derived the slang meaning of gossip or rumour.

Sauvignon Blanc Semillon food pairings: coquilles St Jacques, Greek salad, salmon tartare served on shaved carrot and zucchini.

Reviews and Ratings

From the Margaret River, Western Australia. Skuttlebutt 2018 is a medium-bodied Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon white wine blend. A lot going on here with lemon and lime zest, green pea, guava, passionfruit and lemon curd flavours rounded and zesty on the palate. Pair with grilled Mahi-mahi topped with apricot compote. - Community Wine Reviews

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
