The ‘Icons’ are the pinnacle of Elephant Hill’s winemaking philosophy. Salome Chardonnay is named after a famous ancestor of the Weiss family. Icon wines are only made in the best vintages where 2018 has been noted as the best vintage on record for Elephant Hill. A big claim but with a statement like that, resistance is futile, you need to try to believe because all they say is true.


creamy layers of freshly baked sourdough thickly butter, hazelnuts and vanilla pods are underpinned by peach skin, prince melon, green gage and a dash of lemon zest.


The aromas are rich and enticing whereas the palate surprisingly shows restraint. Stone fruit abound with a knife cutting acidity that gives laser definition, all superbly balanced by the rich, oily concentrated mid palate. This really needs 3-4 years in a temperature-controlled cellar, and then you will agree that 2018 is simply the best. Perfect with all white protein.
