About

About The Wine

This is absolutely cracking value in the context of Margaret River Cabernet Merlot blends.

It's not a super-serious, cellaring style. It's a lighter daily-drinking version of this famous regional blend, but one that hits the itch that only a Cab Merlot from Margaret River can scratch.

Ripe fruit, juiciness and smashability you rarely see in this blend from this area.

What more could you ask for?

About Skigh Wines

Skigh McManus has been a winemaker in Margaret River for more than fifteen years. With his eponymous label, Skigh is striking out on his own.

There's some serious value to be had in his range and some curios for the more adventurous drinker. 

He sources quality fruit from some of the premier sub-regions of Margaret River and gets his wines to bottle with minimal intervention. 

Between his top value CODA wines, his wild and experimental Strange Brew series, and his premium line labelled Abacus, there's something for everyone to be found from Skigh's creations.

Critic Reviews

DDS review

Sweet blackcurrants, bay leaves, cranberries - it couldn't come from anywhere but Margaret River. There's ample fruit, soft moreish tannins, sits plump and juicy in the mouth. Such easy drinking. Very solid value bet for lovers of the Cab Merlot pairing. - Different Drop Wine Team
