Skillogalee has been making Sparkling Riesling since 1987. The fruit is 100% hand-picked Riesling from low-yielding vines growing at just under 500 m above sea level on our own vineyards near Sevenhill in the picturesque Clare Valley. The Clare Valley is known as the home of Australian Riesling and is renowned for producing the finest examples in Australia.
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.
Aroma: Freshly buttered toast with lemon curd, with hints of cashews, brioche and lime marmalade.
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.
