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.
Estate-grown, matured for 18 months in French barriques (33% new). Finniss River is adjacent to McLaren Vale, but has its own site climate and soil that doesn't, however, turn its back on dark chocolate as one of its flavours. The wine is medium to full-bodied, with succulent black fruits, licorice and dark chocolate, French oak and velvety tannins completing a particularly enjoyable palate.
