Rosemount Hill of Gold Cabernet Sauvignon 1999
As a uniquely positioned viticultural district, nestled deep in the Western Slopes of the Great Dividing Range, Mudgee has a great deal to offer the world of wine. The Hill of Gold vineyard and property have for nearly 30 years had an integral place within the history of Mudgee. Rosemount and the Oatley family have undertaken to re-establish this long standing local wine name, adding several hundred acres of new plantings to the original site. The outstanding combination of soils and climate that define the Mudgee wine region provide ideal viticultural foundations from which to produce distinctive varietal wines reflecting the unique terroir of their origin.
Established in 1969 by Robert Oatley and family in Upper Hunter Valley, Rosemount Estate has grown to include vineyards in the Mudgee, Orange, Coonawarra, McLaren Vale, Langhorne Creek and Adelaide Hills regions, as well as the Upper Hunter Valley. Winemaker Philip Shaw works with the Oatleys. The company's best-known wines are the Roxburgh Chardonnay, Balmoral Syrah and Mountain Blue Shiraz-Cabernet Sauvignon.
