Just three kilometres from Young along Murringo Road, planted to a brisk 500 metres above sea level, Grove Estate was originally sown to vines in 1886, by Croatian settlers who brought cuttings from their farms on the Dalmatian coast. Some of these ancient plantings, emigrated at a time when much of Europe was ruled by Hapsburg emperors, remain productive to this day. Newer blocks were gradually established around these priceless parcels, ostensibly with a view to supplying leading national brands. The quality of fruit became so conspicuous that Grove Estate sanctioned industry celebrities from Ravensworth and Clonakilla to begin bottling under their own estate moniker.

Skillogalee Riesling CONFIRM VINTAGE

Riesling Clare Valley South Australia
Skillogalee is Celtic for a sort of gruel commonly fed to prisoners. When John Horrocks finally made it back to Penwortham after his trek through the Flinders ranges on Afghan camels, he gave the creek nearby the name Skillogalee in memory of the scant provisions which sustained the expedition. Skillogalee makes wine in a small but modern facility, which crushes only around 250 tonnes each vintage, affording the team a unique opportunity to hand make discrete quantities of individually carefully crafted, small batch vintages.

The grapes for this pleasingly dry Riesling are harvested off low yielding vines, grown to the highest slopes of Skillogalee, 500 metres above sea level. Vines are hand pruned and the fruit is mostly hand picked. Yields are kept to a modest two tonnes per acre, extremely low, but the site produces Riesling with intense flavour profiles and heady aromatics. The family owned vineyard is managed in accordance with sustainable farming practice. Estate grown, vinified and bottled, grapes are handled and processed in small individual parcels, as each block achieves its optimum flavour ripeness. Components complete their vinification with a view to retaining individual character before assembling into the final wine.
Pale citrus colour. Lively fresh kaffir lime and white blossom florals, acacia and linden blossom aromatics. The palate has tight, stoney minerality with intense lemon drop, citrus flavours. A refreshing, crisp acidity provides the backbone for a dry, lingering finish. Drink now with fish, seafood or white meats.
