Skillogalee Gewurztraminer

Skillogalee Gewurztraminer

Skillogalee Gewurztraminer is  crafted in the classic style – textural, aromatic and spicy with a crisp finish. The 2015 growing season was relatively warm and dry but late on we experience the onset of cool autumn nights allowing the fruit develop full flavoured and pristine fruit with good natural acid.
The Gewurztraminer vines at Skillogalee are grown using minimal intervention and sustainable farming practices to minimise the impact on our environment. The wine was made on-site at the Skillogalee winery.
The wine is pale straw yellow in appearance with green tinges. Exotic aromatics of orange blossom and quince with ginger spice and orange zest follow through onto the palate which is slippery and round with fruit sweetness, balanced by refreshing, juicy acidity and a lingering, dry finish.
A fantastic food matching wine, spanning most genres: –  top of the list should be lightly-spiced, contemporary Asian food, 

Skillogalee Gewurztraminer is also good with fresh summertime salads and flavoursome white meat dishes.

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 our 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.

The vines are hand-pruned and the fruit is mainly hand-picked. Yields are extremely low but the vineyard produces intense flavours and aromas and deep, richly-coloured reds. Kangaroos are our major pests – significant numbers can be found around vintage time, when the hills are dry and brown, camping in the vineyards and feasting on the ripe fruit!

Skillogalee

Skillogalee is a 150 acre property found within the Clare Valley wine region. The property and business were purchased by Dave and Diana Palmer in 1989, however grapes were first grown on the property, in the early 1970’s, on vineyards that are generally quite steep with eastern facing slopes. All the fruit for the wines from Skillogalee is produced from their own vineyards. Within Clare Skillogalee occupies the western extreme of the Sevenhill sub-region. The Skillogalee Valley represents a separate viticultural area, distinct from the main valley and the Polish Hill Valley further west. It is separated from the main valley by a distinct north-south ridge. Rainfall tends to be a little higher than other parts of the Valley.

South Australia

Vineyards were first established in the mid 1800s. Some of the early winery names, Wendouree, Knappstein and Quelltaler are still in the region. Nowadays there is a mix of very large companies and a significant number of boutique wineries. The climate is regarded as warm, but there are variations due to altitude. The main wine styles: White – Riesling, Semillon, Chardonnay; Red – Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon.
