Our Wine

2019 Santolin ‘Gladysdale’ Pinot Noir


This wine is made from fruit grown on the Willowlake Vineyard in the small village of Gladysdale in the Upper Yarra Valley.

“Light to medium red/purple colour with a toasty, oaky-spicy bouquet which shows a little early development. A hint of smokiness. The palate is elegantly lean and intense, refined and tautly-framed, with medium to light-body and good extension. This has potential. It’s a bit in its shell and firm, and another year will pay dividends. There is a nice core of fruit sweetness in there” – Huon Hooke, 2021 The Real Review


This wine has been hand crafted with minimal winemaking intervention. Hand picking commenced on March 11th, 2019.  15% whole bunches and 85% whole berries were left to cold soak in an open pot, then left to ferment naturally over a 14 day period with regular hand plunging.

Once dry, the ferments were pressed to a mixture of new and old French oak barrels where they underwent natural malolactic fermentation. On completion of malo, the wine was matured on lees for 10 months then carefully racked before bottling.  It was not fined or filtered.
