2015 Santolin Nero d’Avola






Rustic and earthy. Black cherry with hints of rose petals and wild herb. Bright, vibrant colour, medium bodied and savoury spice.


This 2015 Nero d’Avola has been produced from fruit grown at Chalmers vineyard in Heathcote, Victoria. It has been hand crafted using whole berries, wild fermentation and minimal intervention. No fining was used in the making of this wine.

Vintage 2015 had a perfect growing season resulting in one of the best vintages we have seen in recent times. A mild spring with a few significant rainfall events when required was followed by a dry and warm summer creating ideal ripening conditions.

Hand picking commenced on March 10th, 2015. Grapes were then chilled overnight. 10% whole bunches and 90% whole berries were transferred to an open fermenter then left to ferment naturally over a 14 day period with regular hand plunging. Once dry, the ferment was pressed to seasoned French oak barrels where it underwent malolactic fermentation. On completion of malo, the wine was sulphured then matured on lees until blending. Wine was not fined and given a single, gentle filtration before bottling.
