Winemaker's Notes

The Rosemount Estate Show Reserve label is applied to wines that have been identified as having fine varietal and regional characteristics in early vineyard and barrel assessments. These wines are given extended maturation in the winery cellars before release.

Color:
Dark blood plum with garnet tones.

Nose:
Aromas of bramble fruit, tobacco leaf, chocolate and mocha gain complexity with notes of nutty oak.

Palate:

Food Matches:
Ideally suited to beef, duck & game, lamb
