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.

Wonderful mature nose with berries, cedar, leather and smooth, full bodied flavor. Fantastic with a good steak.
