Expert Reviews

Pale straw-green; Skillogalee has 40-year-old vines, and has always had gewurztraminer on its books, highly regarded by many; rose petal aromas and some spice, plus a hint of sweetness on the palate, make for a style with broad appeal. Rating 91 - Drink by 2022, James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion (FEB/2014)

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

The wine is pale straw yellow in appearance with green tints.

Aroma

There are lifted aromas of lychee, rambutan, papaya, mandarin and musk.

Palate

The wine has a tight yet generous, kaleidoscopic palate, with flavours of rockmelon, custard apple, thai basil and ginger all playing a part. The finish is clean and crisp with plenty of refreshing, zesty acidity.

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.

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.
