Bert Salomon’s great great uncle, Johann Nepomuk Hinterocker, beat him to Australia by over 100 years, arriving in 1866 to join the Jesuits and make wine at the Sevenhill Winery in Clare Valley. He later founded St Ignatius College in Norwood, a suburb of Adelaide. Bert named this wine in his honour. It’s quite a classic Aussie red with plump plum and berry fruit with a subtle lightly-spiced edge. Super with a nice roast dinner, especially gammon or pork where the intense fruit comes to the fore.

Dark purple. Aromas of blackberry liqueur, cherry pit and licorice show good depth and an enlivening hint of allspice. Fleshy and seamless, offering sweet black and blue fruit flavors that are given bite by a hint of tangy acidity. Clings with very good tenacity on the finish, which is framed by velvety, slow-building tannins. Highly appealing right now. Rating: 90 Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar(Jul 2014)

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.
