Skillogalee crafts their Gewurztraminer 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, fresh summertime salads and flavoursome white meat dishes.
