Press ReviewPress

This is made by the Palmer family, which never puts a foot wrong with its wines. A regular in my 100 Best Australian Wines Report, it’s a powerful chocolate and plum-soaked wine with enormous charm.

Matthew JukesThe Daily Mail Weekend Magazine 100 Best Value Summer Reds, 2017

Dave Palmer and son Daniel make benchmark wines from their picturesque part of the Clare Valley, and this is no exception. A waft of eucalypt and concentrated bramble fruit lies on a leathery, savoury palate with firm tannins, refreshing acidity and a long finish of liquorice and tar. Maturing beautifully.

Decanter Magazine Weekday Wines

Smoky dark berry aromatics and ripe sweet and blackberry fruit endowed with liquorice spice in a generously smooth-textured framework with a lively twist of acidity that could almost be Italian.

Anthony RoseThe Independent

Winemaking

The fruit for this Skillogalee Shiraz was handpicked from low yielding, unirrigated vines growing on the slopes around the homestead, around 450m above sea level. The fruit was destalked and partially crushed, fermented in open tanks with submersion boards to ensure the emersion of the skins for maximum colour and flavour extraction, and then gently basket-pressed. Malo-lactic fermentation took place partially in tank with completion in barrel. Maturation for 20 months in a combination of French and American oak hogsheads has added considerable balance and complexity. This wine has been bottled using a Stelvin Closure in order to maintain it's ripe fruit characteristics and guarantee it's quality when the bottle is opened.
