Overview

Skillogalee crafts their Gewurztraminer in the classic style – textural, aromatic and spicy with a crisp finish. The 2012 vintage benefitted from great soil moisture from the wet winter and well timed spring rains, while the warm sunny days during summer produced excellent flavour ripeness in the grapes.

The Gewurztraminer vines at Skillogalee are grown using minimal intervention and sustainable farming practices to minimize the impact on our environment. The wine was made on-site at the Skillogalee winery.

Winery Tasting Notes

Aroma

The wine shows the unmistakable floral, rose petal aromas and flavours of Traminer fruit, also reminiscent of passion fruit and lychees.

Palate

The 2012 wine was fermented with light grape solids present, which creates a wine with silky texture and complexity.

Food Matching

A fantastic food matching wine, spanning most genres: top of the list should be lightly spiced, contemporary Asian food, fresh summertime salads and flavoursome white meat dishes.

Cellaring Potential

Cellaring for up to about 5 years will repay dividends.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Skillogalee has a small modern, winery, crushing only around 250 tonnes, giving us the opportunity to hand-make individual wines in small batches. Fruit handling and vinification are undertaken using the best of traditional and modern technologies - modern winemaking techniques for whites, to preserve the fruit aromas and flavours, and more traditional techniques for reds - the use of open fermenters and basket pressing to maximise flavour and colour without over-extraction. We focus heavily on gentle fruit handling throughout and our winery hygiene programs are meticulous. In this way, we use the minimum amount of sulphur to keep wines safe from spoilage.
