Mid straw in colour. On the nose there are lively fresh lime aromas with a touch of perfumed aromatics. The palate has intense citrus fruit flavours balanced by a refreshing acidity giving a crisp, dry, lingering finish.

The nose has an intense aromatic lift of musk, ginger spice and fresh Tahitian lime juice The palate is focused, with a lovely backbone of natural acidity that supports a natural fruit sweetness with flavours of mango, red grapefruit and cumquats coming through The wine demonstrates fantastic line and length and has a zesty dry finish

- On the nose, it is all lively fresh lime and lifted floral aromas with a touch of perfumed aromatics.
- The palate has intense citrus fruit flavours balanced by a refreshing, tight acidity giving a crisp, dry, lingering finish. Drink now with seafood or white meat dishes or cellar for about 7 to 10 years.

I purchased some white at a wine shop nearby.
Quite a strong colour for a Skillogalee. Smells really good, like  fresh lemons. A wine with the typical astringent character from Skillogalee.

We had it with a tart. This wine makes for a perfect gift.
It showed strong colours. Perfume of white flowers: jasmine, lilies .... This Skillogalee Riesling had a pleasant taste of blackberries.
