Salo Chardonnay 2018

96 POINTS - MIKE BENNIE!

 

"A little extra flex in this wine, some distinct personality, despite the hands-off winemaking. Let to do its thing on lees, bottled from the big, older barrels the wine settles into over its pre-bottling life. The red clay soil site at higher-than-usual-Yarra altitude is likely also playing a part in the distinct gras and funk, mineral charm and piercing acidity going on in this wine. Killer. Bold, savoury style of chardonnay, loads going on, wilder-edged, chalky pucker, spiked with dried apple, saltiness, flint and smoke. Has big volume of perfume too, more of the ripe and dried apple plus that delicious, savoury nuttiness. Superb wine here. Rolls with so much personality, charismatic, texture, energy. Otherworldly. Love it hard. Watch it fly." - Mike Bennie
