Rosemount Estate Merlot Diamond 2006
Since 1974, Rosemount has been one of Australia's leading wineries, producing wines that reflect the riches of the Australian climate and a dedication to quality, innovation and . Rosemount's unique diamond shaped label serves as a beacon for consumers around the world, with international accolades bearing testament to the tradition of winemaking excellence. In 2006, a new chapter has opened on the Rosemount story, with a reinforced commitment to the hallmark Rosemount wine and groundbreaking new packaging which sees Rosemount again setting the standard for innovation and quality on a global scale. The Diamond Label Series is the heart of Rosemount. Stylish and sophisticated, these wines display the fruit forward, easy-drinking sensibilities which make them delicious from the first sip to the final delectable drop. This wine is sourced from premium wine regions across south east Australia. 2006 showed a good start to the vintage across all regions with the potential to be a good cropping year. Budburst and flowering were good in most districts and rain in Spring promoted luscious growth. Mid January experienced a dramatic climate change with a long period of intense heat which brought the vintage on a lot sooner than normal. An impressive, complex nose with aromas of violets, plum and blackberry melding with hints of oak. A palate full of generous, dark fruit flavors complimented by touches of spice and oak. Fine tannins support the long finish.
Rosemount Estate's vision began in the Hunter Valley region of Australia. Though much has changed at the estate over the years, the original commitment to quality has remained pivotal to the success of the now world-famous winery that is Rosemount Estate.
External Reviews for Rosemount Estate Merlot Diamond
A first-rate Merlot, this big-boned wine has juicy, rich flavors that explode out of the glass and last right through the rich, long finish. Itrsquo;s generous, but well made, with nice oak shadings. This is the kind of wine to bring along to the beach. Everyone will like it.
Light and simple, with an earthy edge to the blueberry fruit. Drink now.
Soft and appealing for its blueberry-scented currant and cedar flavors. Drink now.
Aromas are lactic and creamy out of the gate, and go sweet and candied with air. Fruit on the palate is lackluster, the smooth wood flavors and feel dominating.
Reflects rich and generous aromatics that offer an array of dark plums and sweet red apples. Flavors are plump and ripe with layers of dark cherries set against a well integrated vanillin oak character.
Ripe, fleshy and appealing for its raspberry and currant flavors. Hints at mint and cream as the finish lingers. Drink now through 2009.
Light and appealing for its red berry and dried herb flavors, finishing simple and with some generosity. Drink now.
