2017 Trevarrick Riesling
Trevarrick was the original name of the Skillogalee property, settled by John and Anne Trestrail in the early 1850’s. In 1970 it was planted to vines and renamed. Now at Skillogalee, each individual contour block on the estate is harvested and vinified separately. The Trevarrick name is reserved for wines that are of exceptional quality and varietal character.
The grapes for this wine were selectively harvested off the highest altitude, earliest ripening contour on the property at around 500m. The stony, thin soils and topography of this part of the vineyard produce unique, high quality grapes bursting with varietal character.
The 2012 Trevarrick Riesling was made from 100% hand picked fruit. Only first-cut free run juice was used to ensure the varietal character was captured in the finished wine. The wine shows an intense lift of Tahitian lime, bathpowder and floral perfume on the nose with a touch of orange blossom. The palate is highly structured and the mineral notes speak strongly of the Skillogalee Dolomite soils that nurtured the vines.
The wine is sealed using a glass Vino-Lok stopper to ensure its longevity and freshness.
