Expert Reviews

Tyson Seltzer

94 Points

Gorgeous succulence of black fruit allure is laced with enticing anise and exotic spice, presented in the fragrant and refined frame that defines this magnificent vineyard high in the Clare. Impeccably crafted, it's magnificently structured with super fine tannins that would make for medium-term potential, if it weren't so drop-dead irresistible right now.

The palate is bold, fleshy and yet medium bodied.

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.
