The 2019 Chardonnay Salomé is a robust mouthful of a wine. It is a focused, taut and well-defined Chardonnay. While only medium in body the fruit from the coastal vineyard of Te Awanga and the warmer, more inland parcel in the Bridge Pa Triangle combines to make a rich, intense yet refreshing, salty yet savoury expression. The high-quality French oak provides toasted-hazelnut-like characters alongside ripe nectarine fruit and smoky bacon. Startlingly good.'
Salomé is Elephant Hill’s top tier Chardonnay, named after a well-loved ancestor of the family who own the boutique winery located on the Te Awanga coast in Hawke’s Bay. The wine is produced from meticulously hand tended, hand harvested, low cropped Chardonnay mostly from Elephant Hill’s coastal Te Awanga ‘Sea’ vineyard, blended with Chardonnay from their Bridge Pa Triangle ‘Earth’ vineyard. The highest quality fruit combined with an outstanding 2019 vintage season has resulted in this exceptional wine.
