Salomon Estate Norwood 2012
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.
