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.
Bert and Gertrud 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 Penfolds chief red winemaker until 1997.
