The Icon range represents the pinnacle of Elephant Hill’s winemaking.

Hand crafted in small batches, in low volumes, from a selection of only the best grapes, from the best vineyard blocks and aged in the best quality French barrels. These special wines are for collecting and cellaring and will age well in bottle for many years

Salomé is our finest Chardonnay cuvée, named after a well- loved 18th century ancestor of the founding family of Elephant Hill, Maria Salomé Ebner von Eschenbach.
