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!

The wine was bottle fermented and aged on lees for 30 months. The nose shows aromas of freshly buttered toast with lemon curd and there are hints of cashews, brioche and lime marmalade. The palate shows both generosity and finesse, with a fine, creamy mousse.

There are flavours of honey, green mango and grapefruit and there is a persistent, crisp, dry finish. This current release has already started to mellow gracefully, and will continue to do so for several years to come, yielding those further hints of honey and toast which are typical of mature Riesling.

Description

Skillogalee was established in 1970 with the first wines released in 1976. The 1978 dry riesling won major trophies at the Adelaide Wine Show and the National Wine Show, putting Skillogalee firmly on the Australian winemaking map.

The wines are produced exclusively from grapes grown on their own vineyards and styles include crisp dry whites (Riesling, Gewürztraminer and Chardonnay), a full flavoured Rosé, rich, full-bodied reds (Shiraz, Cabernet sauvignon and blends) and some luscious fortified wines.
