Tasting Note

Gold Medal 25th Anniversary Rosemount! 

Colour

A deep, almost opaque colour with a brick red rim.

Nose

Clearly focused and distinctly varietal with a complex array of deep plum fruit aromas, tobacco leaf and charry oak characters.

Palate

The palate is the essence of cool climate Cabernet displaying elegance, delicate spice and impressive length. Soft plum fruit flavours are supported by fine-grained tannins and subtle oak influences.

 

Vineyards

The Orange region is a distinct and exciting wine growing region in Australia. The vineyard is situated 900 meters above sea level from the town of Orange. This high elevation provides an ideal climate in which to grow premium Cabernet Sauvignon.
