Winemaker Notes

The Chateau Chateau project is a study of the effects of soil and place and Skulls joined the series as classic expression of the Barossa region. The project brief describes the old vine Grenache/Mataro blend as "Sexy, sensual and dangerous, like a Nureyev and Fontayne pas de deux. Satisfying like a one night stand, or maybe like a bistro wine you want every night." The optical play of artist Istvan Orosz's Ship of Fools illustration captures the mercurial essence of wine.

RP 90
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2007 Skulls Red Wine is a blend of 60% Grenache and 40% Mataro raised in stainless steel. Dark ruby colored, it offers up an expressive bouquet of garrigue, forest floor, spice box, and cherry. Forward, medium-bodied, and friendly, this savory effort will drink well over the next six years.
