Rosemount Estate Red Rhone Blend Mclaren Vale Gsm 2010
A Rhone-style blend of 47% Grenache, 47% Shiraz and 6% Mourvedre. Crimson with ruby hues. Displays intense berry fruit aromas with a deep underlying smoky spice. Savory oak is also evident, underlying the primary fruit characters. On the palate, the wine displays a fine depth of deep, spicy fruit flavor, rich in cinnamon and licorice characters with a background of dusty, soft ripe tannins. The rich core of dark fruit is supported by a long, elegant 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.
Very simple, jammy shiraz blend that was smooth, velvety, and not terribly distinctive. Still, it was fine and easy to drink.
Three and a half glasses
Enjoyed this on 10 March, 2012. In cellar for 5 years. Raspberry and oaky vanilla on the nose. Taste develops into a real fruit bomb with red berries, leather and some sweetness to it (reminding of some amarones). A very lively wine despite its age. Tasted it in parallel with another GSM - Le Moulin Teyroud Chateauneuf-du-Pape 2005. At first both wines are pretty similar, but the CdP has more finess, is better balanced and in comparison the Rosemount feels like it is "all over the place" with its berry-fruity characters. All in all a very interesting tasting comparison of an aussie and a french wine with the same grapes and close to same price category. France wins over Australia 1-0 this time. :)
Spicy and earthy grenache leads the charge, backed up with complimentary syrah characteristics. A really nice wine.
I picked up a few bottles of the 2002 Rosemount GSM a few years ago when Trader Joe's had it for $10 a bottle. I can't say I was thrilled with the first bottle I opened, but I recently drank one that I've kept stored and it has aged very well. The flavor is great. Unfortunately, I only have one bottle left.

Smooth yet spicy, sophisticated but earthy, this bright new wine has all the characteristics you'd expect from Rosemount--and at a great price too! Enjoy it with simple, flavorful meat, chicken or pasta dishes.
