Overview

Overview

Rosemount Estate’s Balmoral Syrah has always been a varietal masterpiece – a credit to the great Shiraz vines of McLaren Vale. Sitting at the very top of the Rosemount Estate family tree, Balmoral has achieved both local and international success.

While its origins have – and always will be – in McLaren Vale, the distinctive Balmoral style pays tribute to the Shiraz wines of the Rhone Valley and Mediterranean – hence the traditional French name ‘Syrah.’

Predominantly sourced from the McLaren Vale sub-region of Seaview, this wine is made from premium parcels from carefully selected vineyards (ranging from 50 to 100 years old) that produce tiny quantities of exceptional fruit. The result is a wine that delivers intense depth of flavour, superb length and fine acidity with a soft, velvety tannin structure.

Taste Description

Taste Description

Nose

A richly layered wine, brimming with notes of blood plums, mulberries and bitter chocolate. Undertones of cassis and complex dried spices combine with subtle oak, enriching the wines aromatic nose.

Flavours and Palate

An explosion of vibrant fruits splash across the palate: Black cherries, blackberries, raspberries and dark plums. This very slowly subsides to reveal darker flavours: dark chocolate, black pepper and the hint of roasted meats adds a delicious savoury element. But what is truly divine is the mouthwateringly soft velvety tannins which carry the wine to a long and delicious finish.
