Rosemount Estate Red Rhone Blend Hunter Valley Grenache-Shiraz Diamond 2005

Member Review by Rocknet:

If you can find this vintage (2005) on the shelf at your favorite wine store as of this writing (July, 2009) - snap it up. A ripe fruit bomb with a nice lip-smacking acidity. Could use some time in a decanter. This is a $10 wine that drops sediment. Very fresh and appealing. Simply delicious.

Deep raspberry and cherry fruit flavors are enhanced by exotic spice and pepper characters. An aromatic, tasty style with a soft, rounded finish.

This dark ruby-colored blend cuts a deeper swath, possesses copious quantities of cherry and currant fruit, good spice, an excellent, pure winemaking style, no evidence of wood, and a straightforward yet delicious, medium-bodied finish. Drink it over the next year to take advantage of its freshness, perfume, and ripe fruit.

This newer blend from Rosemount is even fruitier that the pure Shiraz, borrowing heavily upon the jammy qualities of ripe Grenache grapes. The blend is common in southern France, but the taste is distinctly Australian.

Soft and generous, with a strong floral note ringing alongside the basic berry flavors. A drink-me-now red. 65% Grenache, 35% Shiraz.

Fresh and ripe, with spicy cherry aromas and flavors and hints of cedar on the light finish. A great buy from a reputable Australian producer. Drink now.

The 1997 Grenache/Shiraz, made from 65% of the former and 35% of the latter, is a lighter-styled, almost Beaujolais-like red wine with a light ruby color, gobs of black cherry and framboise-like fruit, an alluring level of glycerin, and soft, easy-going flavors that flow across the palate with considerable suppleness. Drink it over the next year.

Is this Australiarsquo;s answer to Beaujolais? The sweet black cherries are accented by tart red berries fore (on the nose) and aft (on the finish). Some sweet caramel flavors and negligible tannins make this easy to gulp.
