Rosemount Balmoral Syrah 1997
The intense fruit flavours and rich, velvety characteristics of the 1997 vintage will no doubt add to the reputation that has made Balmoral a modern day classic of Australian winemaking.
This is a wine for long term maturation which will begin to show its best in about five years time, building to its full potential at approximately 10 to 15 years of age, and possibly up to 20 years with appropriate storage.
