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.
I had no idea of the 19th century links between Bert Salomon and several Austrian forefathers in Australia, one founder of St Ignatius Church and College in Norwood in 1870. This 68/32% blend is full of life and zest to its medium body, the stamp of the '17 vintage. Not all share my love of the natural acidity and bright, medium-bodied fruit of the vintage, but so be it.
