Skillogalee Estate in the Clare Valley has launched a new brand identity and packaging.
Unveiled alongside the release of the new vintage 2022 Riesling, the new design reinterprets the iconic contours of the vineyards, which have been at the heart of Skillogalee’s story throughout its 50-year history.
South Australian-raised owner Simon Clausen says the design honours Skillogalee’s rich history of achievement and passion while embracing a new era for one of the state’s best-loved wine producers and wine destinations.
The Clausen family took over the custodianship of Skillogalee in July 2021 from Dave and Diana Palmer.
“We know how much people love Skillogalee and we really treasure that,” Simon says.
“Everyone has a Skillogalee story and this redesign is the next step as Skillogalee continues to evolve and grow.”
The 2022 Riesling is also the first with Skillogalee’s consultant winemaker and Clare Valley trailblazer Kerri (KT) Thompson, at the helm of the winery, following a decade-long association with the Palmers.
“Skillogalee is a special place to many of us and how lovely it is to be a part of its continued celebration,” says Kerri.
“Our small, dedicated team remain committed to creating delicious wines expressing Skillogalee’s spirit and story and this new release from a cracker vintage is a great place to start.”
The viticulturist is Brendan Pudney.
“We are extremely proud of what Skillogalee has contributed so far to building the Clare Valley’s international reputation for excellence in winemaking, dining and experiences,” says Simon.
“We can’t wait to share what comes next.”
