SKIGH WINES MSB MAGNUM (1.5 LITRE)
SKIGH WINES MSB MAGNUM 1.5 LITRE
The wine is made in a field blend style and is made up of 75% Karridale Merlot & 25% Karridale Sauvignon Blanc and designed to be served slightly chilled. We actually didn't chill it and drank the wine over the course of a few days and it looked good until the last drop.
Easy drinking with maximum share-ability. Not a vin de garde, but it is a vin de party hard! Grab one to take wherever you're headed this weekend or stash a few away for when taking one bottle is just not enough.
The Magnums are a drought relief colab between Skigh Wine and local artist Carolyn Rhodes-Thompson, who focuses upon water scarcity in WA and wider Australia. As a wine producer who is reliant upon hard working farmers who are adversely affected in time of drought, this is something Skigh resonated with and wanted to highlight through a unique release.
They have partnered with Drought Angels, a charity focused upon providing assistance to drought affected farmers, to donate $5 from every bottle sold. They will also be holding an event in the coming months highlighting both the wine and Carolyn's art where paintings will be auctioned with proceeds going to the same fund.
The artwork used for the front label has been titled "Scarcity" and in Carolyn's own words:
"Represents the enormity of the fresh water problem in Perth and wider Australia and how the population can search for the solutions. Looking outside, seeing the issues country communities endure which ultimately impacts on us all.
The jigsaw puzzle pieces bring up the questions and the puzzle of what to do when facing drought periods.
For everyone, water is everything. It is our survival."
