Skillogalee Wine

These grapes are allowed to reach optimum flavour ripeness before being harvested.  The juice is fermented on medium solids in French Oak Hogsheads, adding further layers to the fruit characters and fresh acidity.  During the wine’s maturation in barrel, lees are stirred daily to introduce textural creaminess to the palate. 

The wine displays a pale straw hue with green tints.  It shows concentrated aromas of pineapple, poached pear and stone fruit.  There are also hints of white flowers and nougat, with a flinty complexity on the nose.  The palate is generous, intense and elegantly textured.  The tropical fruit flavours of honeydew melon, cantaloupe and kiwifruit are seamlessly integrated with the lemon curd and buttered toastiness of winemaking influences. The acidity is well defined and balanced.  This wine provides refreshing length, whilst finishing powerfully.

  • Varietal - Chardonnay
  • Year - 2018
  • Alcohol - 12.7%
