Skillogalee has been making Sparkling Riesling since 1987. The fruit is 100% hand-picked Riesling from low yielding vines growing at just under 500m above sea level on our own vineyards near Sevenhill in the picturesque Clare Valley. Clare is, of course, renowned for its fine Riesling!

Winery Tasting Notes
The wine was traditionally made with a secondary, bottle fermentation and was aged on its yeast lees for around 20 months before being disgorged.
The nose is quite yeasty with plenty of fruit.
The palate is full, soft and flavoursome with a crisp, clean dry finish. There is plenty of fizz and the bead is quite small and of medium persistency. This current release has already started to mellow gracefully, and will continue to do so for several years to come, yielding those hints of honey and toast which are typical of mature Riesling.
