Salome Chardonnay Elephant Hill 2016

Combining richness and finesse, Salomé beguiles on the nose, weaving subtle acacia scent, fresh white nuts and savoury citrus. The palate is immediately enveloping with creamy orchard and stone fruit, its soft curves concealing a fine laser line of salinity and minerals at its core.

"Elephant Hill’s ultimate expression of the noble Chardonnay grape, in the mould of great white Burgundy."

“Elephant Hill Salomé 2016 which is Chardonnay from a cooler vintage that still has ripe fruit and fine texture, there’s a little of the light to medium toast wood apparent just slight, unobtrusive reductiveness.”

Peter Dean, The Buyer


“Majority of the Chardonnay grapes came from the Te Awanga vineyard, with 17% from Bridge Pa. Matured in French oak, 34% new. A little more toastiness and buttery/oatmeally quality than the Reserve, a little Jack Daniels note, there is a fat lemony fruit and acid quality, and the phenolic grip and acid gives it fine presence and length, finishing with spice and nuttiness.”
