    From the winemakers: "Over the last 6 years we have made Salo from a single block of Chardonnay grown on the deep red volcanic soils in the upper Yarra, farmed by Simon Harte.
    These vines are now 18 years of age and each year, they seem to deliver a little more elegance and concentration into our wine. There is something about Yarra vineyards settling into a balance and maturity as they approach the end of their 2nd decade..
    There is a lovely freshness and energy to this wine – really delicious as a new release, but we think with good cellaring this wine will develop some lovely complexity over the next 5 -10 years. Cases made 245"

    Producer

    Created by two great minds in Australian winemaking, Steve Flamsteed of Giant Steps (2016 Gourmet Traveller WINE Winemaker of the Year) and Dave Macintosh of Arfion. Salo wines are gritty, textured and packed with personality - quickly becoming known as one of the best, most exciting Chardonnay releases in Australia. Steve and Dave use techniques that lie well outside the textbook approach to winemaking, making for complex, provocative and excitingly modern wine that sells out entirely within a week or two of release.

    Region

    First planted with vines in 1838, the Yarra Valley is the birthplace of the Victorian wine industry. It ceased production in the fortified wine boom in the 1920s and planting began again in earnest in the 1960s with modern pioneers such as Dr Bailey Carrodus, Guill de Pury and Dr John Middleton paving the way for the Yarra Valley to become one of Australia’s premier wine growing regions today. Their Yarra Yering, Yeringberg and Mount Mary wineries remain regional heroes, firm favorites such as Coldstream Hills and new star wineries such as Oakridge and Giant Steps excel with stunning examples of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Syrah. Cabernet Sauvignon and Riesling are also no slouch in the region and the exciting new breed of wineries such as Bobar, Mac Forbes, Hoddles Creek, Salo, Timo Mayer, Thousand Candles and Proud Primary Produce are proof of the Yarra Valley’s diversity and understanding of place. Local Knowledge: The restaurant at Oakridge Wines is one of the finest regional dining experiences in the land…. Have a glass of 864 Chardonnay while you are there.
