The classic style – textural, aromatic and spicy with a crisp finish.
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 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.
Pale straw yellow in appearance, with a green tinge.
Exotic aromatics of orange blossom and quince with ginger spice and orange zest.
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, fresh summertime salads and flavoursome white meat dishes.
