Depth and generosity

Skillogalee Riesling 2017, Clare Valley, AUD $25

Brimming with character and personality, this is a full-flavoured, concentrated riesling that is immensely satisfying to drink. Ripe citrus flavours make up the core of the flavour profile, with a little spice and floral hints on the edges. The palate has the type of depth and generosity that is rather mesmerising, and after the first glass, it will have you coming back for more.

What’s more, it has is a surprising capacity to pair with a wide range of foods. This wine will be enjoyed by many. (Screwcap)
