Winemaker's Notes

Winemaking notes:

The 2015 Chardonnay was grown by Simon Hart at the high altitude Full Moon Vineyard in Gladysdale, Yarra valley. Soils are red basalt clay loam and the clone is Bernard Selection 96.

The 2015 vintage will prove to be our best vintage yet. We cannot remember a year where good yields were matched in harmony with such pristine fruit quality. Lovely winter rains and a wonderful spring for a good even fruit set. Ideal summer growing conditions, with an average January maximum temperature of 27.5 °C. We had a welcome rain event in mid February that gave us a little breathing space. Our Chardonnay was hand picked on the 1st March, 2015 in near perfect condition. Lovely flavours and crisp acidity. It was just a really beautiful year.

That's he hard bit done, the winemaking was very simple¦

Whole bunch pressed to 500 and 700 Litre french casks, wild yeast, no Malo. Settled and racked to tank for a short chill in December.

2015 Salo Yarra Valley Chardonnay

Expert Reviews

Huon Hooke (2015 Vintage) says
Light yellow colour and a fresh, youthfully restrained, clean aroma which suggests pear and honeydew melon, with traces of lemon and nougat. Oak is not obvious. It's light and smooth, finely textured and delicate, restrained and very much a modern style of chardonnay. Delicious.
