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
The wine shows the unmistakable floral, rose petal aromas and flavours of Traminer fruit, also reminiscent of passion fruit and lychees.
The 2012 wine was fermented with light grape solids present, which creates a wine with silky texture and complexity.
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 for up to about 5 years will repay dividends.
