While its origins have – and always will be – in McLaren Vale, the distinctive Balmoral style pays tribute to the Shiraz wines of the Rhone Valley and the Mediterranean – hence the traditional French name ‘Syrah.’
Very ripe plums, mint, generous yet elegant body with a powerful length and earthy tannins. Rich, round - excellent.
Predominantly sourced from the McLaren Vale sub-region of Seaview, this wine is made from premium parcels from carefully selected vineyards (ranging from 50 to 100 years old) that produce tiny quantities of exceptional fruit. The result is a wine that delivers intense depth of flavour, superb length and fine acidity with a soft, velvety tannin structure.
Rosemount Estate has established itself, in a little over thirty years, as one of Australia's leading wineries, producing a selection of fine wines that reflect the riches of the Australian climate and the winemaking team’s constant dedication to wine quality, innovation and style.
Trophy Winner at the 2011 Decanter World Wine Awards for the 2008 Rosemount Balmoral Syrah for the best Red Rhone Varietal over ten pounds.
Decanter - Very ripe plums and mint on the nose. Generous yet elegant body with a powerful length and earthy tannins. Rich, round and excellent.
James Halliday - Deep purple-crimson; if ever a wine has deserved the term 'velvety', this is it. Luscious black fruits are wrapped in a soft cocoon of new French and American oak, the ripe and round tannins pushed into the background.
