  • TASTING NOTE: Unmistakably Margaret River Cabernet, but as with all of the Skigh reds, leaning towards the feminine. Lots of red fruit, a little eucalyptus and loads of cocoa. Long elevage in French oak has softened out the acid beautifully.
  • ABOUT THE WINE: Hand plunged 3 times daily over the course of 2 weeks with an additional 3 week post fermentation maceration. The skins were basket pressed for gentle tannin extraction after both primary and malo-lactic fermentations were completed.
  • ABOUT THE PRODUCER: Winemaker Skigh McManus got started in the industry at Howard Park in Denmark when he first finished school. Fast forward 25 years through vintages in New Zealand, Canada, America, Spain, France and Western Australia and the time was ripe to explore his own expressions of what WA wines can be. He started making wine under the ‘Skigh’ label in 2016, sourcing fruit from some amazing sites in Margaret River.  Today he still works closely with these same growers, while extending his sourcing to The Great Southern, as well as farming his own vines and seeking out a few other special parcels around WA. Winemaking is all about balance and drinkability. Gentle, spontaneous ferments using native yeasts, no additions where pragmatic, natural acidity and minimal sulphur at bottling, leads to well-balanced wines that are approachable and alive while maintaining a sense of place.
