Salomon Estate bottles elegant Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon. Atop the rolling hills of the Finniss River winegrowing area the grapes ripen in an idyllic microclimate. Finniss River extends along the southeast sholder of the Adelaide Hills, part of the Fleurieu Peninsula. Salomon Estate wines mirror the unique qualities of this landscape: you can feel the midday sun in their fruits and the chilled air of the nearby Southern Ocean in their acids. These exceptional wines reflect the fruit of Australia with a European approach to winemaking.
Hand-picked, destemmed, crushed, open-fermented, wild yeast, matured for 18 months in French oak (20% new). An interesting wine, the key to its individuality its 5-week maceration in skins, then being pressed direct to barrel. It finally comes out of oak and into bottle, bringing with it a fine stream of juicy dark fruits and fine-grained tannins.
