Gourmet Traveller Winemaker Of The Year - 2016

Salo is the project of Dave Mackintosh and Steve Flamsteed; a couple of Australia's most highly credentialed winemakers. Flamsteed is currently head winemaker at Giant Steps in the Yarra Valley and was the recent recipient of Gourmet Traveller Wine Magazine's 'Winemaker of The Year' in recognition for his considerable industry contribution.

Flamsteed believes the 2015 vintage is one of the best Yarra Valley he has experienced; with good yields matched in harmony with high quality grapes. In his true style, the winemaking philosophy is 'minimal intervention', with the hand-picked grapes whole bunch pressed in 500 and 700 litre French oak casks, wild yeast and no malolactic fermentation. The result is a beautiful cool-climate Chardonnay with crisp acidity, pristine fruit flavours and impeccable structure.

"95 Points. From a vineyard in Gladysdale, which is a nice place name. Sort of homely and happy at once. Pie apple and spice, a whiff of struck match, maybe some lime and lemon. It’s smooth and fleshy, with an almost peppery feel in flavour and texture, ripe citrus smoothed with almond, and a long finish that rings like a bell. Beauty. A short note for a great wine. Tasted: Nov.16 Alcohol: 13% Price: $40 Closure: Screwcap Drink: 2016 - 2025" - Gary Walsh, The Wine Front.
