2015 Santolin Chardonnay ‘Willowlake’ Vineyard


Complex aromas of toast, yeast and flint with hint of white flower and white stone fruit. Textural palate with notes of white peach, grapefruit and well integrated oak.


This 2015 Chardonnay is produced from fruit grown on a single block from the Willowlake vineyard in Gladysdale, Upper Yarra Valley. It has been crafted with minimal intervention, using natural fermentation, no fining and only a single filtration before bottling.

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 was followed by a dry and warm summer creating ideal ripening conditions.

Hand picking commenced on March 12th 2015. The fruit was chilled overnight then whole bunch pressed and the juice went straight to a mixture of new and used French oak barrels. A small portion of the grapes were fermented on skins to add texture and mouthfeel. The wine stayed on lees until blended and received a single, gentle filtration prior to bottling.
