Rosemount Orange Shiraz 2000
Planted in 1989, the vineyard is located on an excellent mix of red volcanic and loess soils. It is vertically trellised to optimise sunlight exposure. This unique site yields lively, expressive fruit, which shows its finely chiselled structure of crisp natural acidity in the resultant wines.
Vibrant ruby red. The nose is tightly structured with dark cherry and spice aromas melding with notes of white pepper and clove. The palate clearly demonstrates the cool climate nature of this wine with a refined character and well-defined structure. Initial flavours of dark cherry and plum evolve to display elements of Liquorice and Cinnamon. Fine-grained tannins and well-integrated French oak support the fruit and help ensure a long, savoury finish. Food Matches: Ideally suited to Lamb, Duck & Game, Cheese.
