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.

This is my all time favorite red. Every sip is worth savoring and well worth the price.

Just opened a bottle of the 2000 vintage. I think I waited a bit too long as the wine was on the harsh side for being properly cellared until 2009.

smooth, easy drinking, I do prefer it a little chilled, good with red meats. Not too powerful but solid flavors

External Reviews for Rosemount Estate Syrah Mclaren Vale Balmoral

External Review

Stylish and aristocratic, smooth and ripe up front, offering brilliant blackberry, cherry, red pepper and spice aromas and flavors, which pick up a solid base of firm tannins as they last and last on the beautifully focused finish. Best from 2005 through 2012.

External Review

The 2000 Syrah Balmoral emerges from old McLaren Vale vines. Its deep ruby color is followed by smoky, black currant, and berry fruit offered in a medium-bodied, pinched, but well-endowed style. The vintagersquo;s weakness pokes through, but this remains a competent effort to consume over the next 4ndash;5 years.

External Review

Red-ruby. Roasted cassis and cola in the nose; more shiraz than syrah. Then fat and rich in the mouth, with flavors of dark berries and smoke. Distinctly saline but not a peppery style of syrah. Finishes nutty and rich, with big, dusty tannins and lingering sweet oak notes. Nicely lush wine, but not quite vibrant enough for outstanding.

External Review

Solid and excellent, as it almost always is. Plum fruit dominates, with anise accents; tannins are smooth. Wood is present but subtle mdash; mouthfeel is textured more like clay than oak.

External Review

Balmoral is a highly stylized wine, unique among the several old vine South Australian wines on the market today. Its velvety palate structure and rich, expressive fruit have made it an extremely sought-after wine in previous vintages.
