Skillogalee Riesling 2020


Skillogalee Estate (about 500 metres above sea level) is a family-owned vineyard  and managed in accordance with sustainable farming practices. Vintage 2020 was a later vintage than recent years allowing plenty of time for flavour development.

The Fruit was harvested separately by plot and individual wines were made from each of the micro climate sites. Each parcel is fermented separately, allowing the individual characteristics of each wine to develop and show different nuances, before blending immediately prior to bottling.

The wine is bright straw in appearance, with a green tinge. The nose has a perfumed lift of jasmine, orange blossom spice and lemon zest. The palate is full-flavoured with excellent fruit concentration and texture. Flavours of lemon/lime zest and pith prevail, with hints of citrus spice and succulent, juicy acidity emerging thereafter. Structurally, this wine has impressive length, a lively natural acid backbone and a mouth-wateringly powerful finish.

More Information

Skillogalee Estate is owned and operated by David and Diane Palmer.

The vineyards were planted in the early 1970s on what was then, at almost 500 metres above sea level, one of the highest vineyards in South Australia. The rows are planted on the contour in shallow stony soils mainly on steep eastern facing slopes.

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.
