2010 Salomon Finniss River Estate

Grapes Viognier, Syrah
Colour Red
Origin Australia, South Australia
ABV 14.5%

This is Bertold’s top single vineyard Shiraz which is only wheeled out in the very best years. The style is top-class cool climate shiraz with layers of sweet chocolate, blackcurrant and damson fruit. There’s also hints of woodsmoke, minerals and spice. The fine grained tannins are effortlessly ripe and round while the acidity is clean and balanced. Exquisite oak (small barrels for 18 months, 50% new French oak) handling gives this wine another dimension. Sensationally long and enjoyable. Expensive, but definitely vaut le detour.

Bert Salomon's Australian vineyard holdings are in the Finniss River region, on the Fleurieu Peninsula, just south of Adelaide. Founded by his ancestors in 1866, the current generation followed his lead over a hundred years later to make wines with the same meticulous care that they follow in the Wachau, Austria. For local knowledge and expertise, Bert has been helped from the outset by his longtime friend Mike Farmilo, who was Penfold’s chief red winemaker until 1997. It has clearly been a winning combination.
