The Santolin's créme de la créme!
Adrian & Rebecca’s Family Reserve wines are hand-crafted with minimal intervention in order to capture the true pristine essence of the Yarra Valley - simply, they are magnificent!
Every single vintage release of the Family Reserve Chardonnay and Pinot Noir has rated at 92% or above, and, as high as 96% - the sheer consistency of quality is next level.
The Santolin Family Reserve Chardonnay was hand picked from low yielding vines, naturally fermented in French oak and matured for a further 9 months. You’ll be awestruck by the hazelnut and grapefruit aromas and flavours all beautifully wrapped up and balanced by a hint of oak and melon. The gorgeous acidity gives this luxe wine an impressively long finish.
The Santolin Family Reserve Pinot Noir was also hand picked from low yielding vines then destemmed into small pots, then partial whole bunch and wild yeast fermented. Matured for 9 months in barrel prior to being bottled. This is one delicious Pinot! Raspberry and earthy aromas mingle seamlessly with sour cherry flavours balanced by silky tannins and a great textured mouthfeel. Delicate, yet all with long lingering flavours.
