FLEURIEU PENINSULA SYRAH-VIOGNIER
2013 Salomon Finniss River Estate
|Origin||Australia, South Australia|
Syrah and Viognier blend. Round and flattering and definitely worth the premium. Rather luxurious. Salty satin! Drinking range: 2017 - 2025 Rating: 16.5 Jancis Robinson MW OBE - www.JancisRobinson.com (Oct 2017)
*Case Price: Mix any 12 bottles of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
The inky, beefy tone to the nose is juxtaposed by a floral, peppery palate that is booming out fresh vibrant berries in a food-friendly style. Rating: 89 Decanter Magazine (Apr 2017)
Salomon Finniss River Estate
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.
You know, you can be too traditional. Ring the changes, ditch the claret, bin the Burgundy, say "non" to Europe. Since Columbus sailed the ocean blue back in 1492 there's been a New World, and that New World is keen to sell us wine. Fragrant New Zealand Sauvignon, gutsy Californian Zinfandel, elegant Argie Pinot Noir, surprisingly elegant Australian and some new and exciting Monterey Chardonnay await. Tuck in.
