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

Rosemont does wine well. This one is no exception.
smooth, easy drinking, I do prefer it a little chilled, good with red meats. Not too powerful but solid flavors
Dusty, peppery, medicinal. Very light fruit left, medium bodied. Over the hill. Light tannins, acidic but not sour. Just kinda empty. Was probably great in its day.
External Reviews for Rosemount Estate Syrah Mclaren Vale Balmoral
Majestic wine named after the 19th-century homestead of the Oatley family, founders of Rosemount. Deep red-purple, this complex Shiraz has astonishing layers of fruit, earthy characters and firm tannins.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
<p>A ruby wine with earthy aromas that make way for very earthy flavors including tar and tobacco notes with a currant, plum, and smoke finish. Berry and raisin flavors come out after the wine aerates a little. A great companion with almonds, blue cheeses, and red meats. </p>
