Skillogalee Trevarick Riesling 2012

£21.99

"If time stopped for a moment at 7pm on 3rd June 2014, right in the middle of the launch of this list at Australia House, I feel certain it would be the greatest moment in Skillogalee’s history so far. Because, at this precise moment, 2012 Trevarrick (my featured wine), 2013 Skillogalee Gewurztraminer and 2013 Skillogalee Riesling will all be in the market and available for purchase and this means that the finest three stars that this incredible estate has ever produced will all align. It’s rare for two wines in a portfolio to crisscross like this, regardless of vintage, but for three it is incredible. 2012 Trevarrick is set to be a legendary wine. I opened the 2010 vintage earlier this year and was flabbergasted by
the depth of flavour and nobility in the glass. I think this 2012 is an even finer wine. I also sense exceptional grace and control in the estate Riesling and its Gewurz sibling. Three cheers for Skillogalee. If I could have only tasted one wine at the Enotria (Skilly’s UK agents) tasting earlier this year it was this one. I told Diana Palmer this, too. It didn’t disappoint – it is my highest pointing Aussie Riesling of the vintage and I had to wait a year after all of the others were released to taste it. It was worth the wait."
Matthew Jukes Top 100, June 2014

TASTING NOTE

This wine shows a floral perfume on the nose with a nice touch of orange blossom. The palate has great length and minerality with all the citrus attributes expected of a Skillogalee Riesling. A tight, fresh and focused acidity keeps everything in balance.
