Overview

The fruit was vinified in open fermenters, and then gently basket-pressed to create a wine with firm but fine tannins, needing no fining. Maturation in a combination of French and American oak hogsheads has added considerably to its balance and complexity.

Winery Tasting Notes

Aroma/Palate

The fruit was vinified in open fermenters, and then gently basket-pressed to create a wine with firm but fine tannins, needing no fining. Maturation in a combination of French and American oak hogsheads has added considerably to its balance and complexity.

Cellaring Potential/Food Matching

The wine will cellar well for at least 10 years but, for those without that kind of patience, enjoy sooner with red meat, game or rich pasta 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.
