Winemaker's Notes

The Rosemount Show Reserve label is applied to wines that have been identified as having particularly fine varietal and regional characteristics in early vineyard and barrel assessments. These wines are then given extended maturation in Rosemount's winery cellars before release. The blending of wines from two or more individual viticultural regions to achieve optimum quality has a long tradition in Australian winemaking. This Show Reserve Shiraz brings together two of South Australia's most distinctive wine regions, combining the spicy richness typical of McLaren Vale with the superb depth of varietal fruit concentration from Langhorne Creek.

Color: Dark plum red with crimson tones.

Nose: A concentrated and powerful nose with notes of stewed plum, anise, chocolate and spice. Oak maturation provides a subtle, creamy vanilla background.

Palate: Rich and powerful on the palate with dark berry and plum flavors developing more complex earthy, spiced tones. Supple tannins and attractive oak flavors make for a long and balanced finish. Delicious now, this wine will repay careful cellaring.

Food matches: Ideally suited to beef, duck and game, lamb
