Origin Australia, South Australia
District Finiss River

Bert Salomon grows his Merlot in the Finiss River region of the Fleurieu Penninsula, South Australia where it never gets too hot and the nights are super cool. This lets the Merlot retain a nice bite to its blackcurrant fruit, with a juiciness on the palate, and a pleasant tannic structure. L&S (Feb 2019)

Salomon Estate

Our great friends the fabulous Salomon family famous in Austria for the historic estate also have this sensational outpost in Australia - Salomon Estate. Here they make elegant Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon. Atop the rolling hills of the Finniss River wine-growing area the grapes ripen in an idyllic micro-climate. Finniss River extends along the southeast shoulder 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. Bert, Gertrud, Fay Marie and young Bert Salomon bridge the old and the new wine world. Harvesting twice a year they commute between Finniss River/Australia and their famous white wine estate Salomon Undhof – Austria, which they manage in the eighth generation. Always one to make the right decisions at the right time, Bert is helped by iconic Australian winemaker Mike Farmilo, longtime friend and former chief red winemaker at Penfolds.
