Rosemount Estate Red Rhone Blend Hunter Valley Grenache-Shiraz Diamond 2009
Rosemount has established itself as one of Australia's leading wineries. With a wide selection of fine wines that reflect the diversity of the Australian climate, the Rosemount's name has become synonymous with style, innovation and an unswerving dedication to the winemaker's art. Their winemaking ethos is centred around bringing fresh and creative wines to life through creativity. The Diamond Cellars range fresh, stylish and good quality wines created in accessible interpretations of the Rosemount style. The nose has sweet, perfumed straberry notes, with hints of darker mulberry fruit. Black fruit notes gives the wine complexity and depth. On the palate, Grenache fruit flavours meets blackberry Shiraz notes, which adds texture and weight to produce a full flavoured, easy to drink wine. Ideal with pizza or pasta.
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.
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 plum and cherry. nice balance at this point- doubt it is going to get much better. been drinking this case over the past four years and it has really come along.

Das duftig-zarte Bukett verströmt Aromen süßer Erdbeeren mit Nuancen der Maulbeere. Hinzu kommen weitere dunkle, noch komplexere Fruchtaromen, die dem Duft noch mehr Tiefe geben. Im Mund spürt man anfangs das fruchtig-frische Grenachearoma, welches von den kraftvollen, fast berauschenden Shiraznoten, die an Brombeeren erinnern, gefolgt wird. Ein vollaromatischer Rotwein mit Tiefe und Fülle.

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.
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.
Soft and generous, with a strong floral note ringing alongside the basic berry flavors. A drink-me-now red. 65% Grenache, 35% Shiraz.
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.
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.
Simple, sweet-tasting and slightly candied, this bouncy drink is best served slightly chilled. Think of it as an introduction to wine mdash; something to explore after white Zinfandel.
