Riesling 100%

The grapes for this wine come from low yielding vines planted on the highest slopes of the family estate, about 500 meters above sea level. Grapes from individual parcels of vines were picked by hand as they reached optimal ripeness and fermented separately. The wine from the different parcels was blended immediately before bottling.

Skillogalee was the first winery in Clare valley and takes its name from the creek that flows through the property. The creek was named by an early pioneer, John Horrocks who whilst on an early expedition in the area in the 1840's fell sick and was trapped by bad weather. He survived by making a thin gruel - skillogalee - from grass seeds and water from the creek.

The first vines were planted in 1970 and the first wines made in 1976. The 1978 riesling won several trophies at both the Adelaide and National wine shows.

Wines are hand made, in small batches using a combination of traditional and modern techniques.
