Salo Chardonnay 2019

95 POINTS - WINE FRONT! 

"Salo always tastes like Salo, which is as it should be, though vintages obviously shape the outcome. This is kind of thick and fleshy but with a firm core of enlivening acidity. It tastes of pie apple with a savoury edge of roast chicken and toasted hazelnuts, ripe lime acidity, fine chalk dust texture, and again that almost creamy oatmeal and an umami sake thing on a long and juicy citrus finish of precision and grip. Very excellent." - Gary Walsh, Wine Front 

"Exciting wine this. As is often with Salo, savoury characters, saline minerality a feature. Strong in chalky texture, deeply flavoured ripe apple, green pear, stone fruit the mainstays, but yeah, that minerality thing is a twist and drive. Yeasty finish, salty and bright, a delight. A wine of distinct personality, charisma and high drinkability. On the edge, on its own path. Love it." - Mike Bennie
