(2010 Vintage) Rosemount's Balmoral Syrah has always been a varietal masterpiece with more than a firm nod to its McLaren Vale origins. Select parcels from selected vineyards create a wine of rich concentration and superb length. Complex peppery nuances balanced by fine acidity and firm tannin structure.
International Wine CellarModerately deep red-ruby. Strongly oaky chocolate, mocha, cedar and vanilla aromas overshadow cooked, tarry plum, prune and cassis fruit. The intense prune, plum and currant fruit at the front of the palate then taper out to a green-edged finish of steely acids and drying oak. Like many other wines from 1999, this shows both underripe and overripe aspects.
