1998 Rosemount Estate Shiraz Show Reserve

Deep purple colour. Medium to full body, slightly hit aroma but smooth flavour of plum and dark fruit. Tannin not too heavy. It is my last bottle and it was a very good finish.

Aged faded plum appearance; port-like nose, chocolate and stewed damson and plums. Smokey chocolate; complex fruits on the palate, nice filling mouthful. Good but nothing special.

Dark crimson colour. Medium body, underlying tannin but full fruit flavour. Dark berries and fruit cake flavour with undertones of spice. Very nice wine to enjoy by itself or with a nice steak. Unfortunately only had one bottle of this vintage.

5/1/2015 - deon40g Does not like this wine: 82 points

The 2013 Rosemount Estate Shiraz is currently rated as 86 points by the CellarTracker community. Wine Spectator rates the 2012 vintage 87 points (no rating available for the 2013). I have to go against the grain here. I did not enjoy this wine. It wasn't bad, but I would have to dig deep for any redeeming qualities. I did not care to finish the bottle on the first night and, even more rare, I didn't bother to touch it on day two. Surprisingly, this inexpensive grocery store purchase did retain much of its character on day three and I was content with the final pours. I am not sure if the bottle actually improved on day three, or if I simply had better insight on what to expect. Overall, the dark berry notes and spice I hoped for did not seem to integrate well here. This wine has a medium body, medium tannins, medium acidity, and a tad bit of heat that quickly disappears. The wine comes off as underwhelming and off-character in its taste profile. This is especially poignant given that Rosemount hails from Australia where so many great options for a shiraz are at hand. I recommend dropping a bit more coin for one of Mollydooker's lines. It is an unfair comparison to this Rosemount, but Mollydooker's Carnival of Love is worth the price of entry. With that said, I have enjoyed several of Rosemount's red blends in the past, as well as their white blends. Although I hate being robbed of the experience of popping the cork (screw tops are characteristic of many, but not all Australian wines), I try not to let that bias my opinion about the juice inside of the bottle. I rate the 2013 Rosemount Estate Shiraz as 83 points.

Deep purple with red rim. Pleasant Leathery musky aroma. Medium body with short finish. Coarse taste with minimal fruit, underlying tannin and a bit of alcohol burn. Not a bad wine but a bit past its best.

Really not all that bad. Maybe a slight hint of residual sugar. Soft and smooth rotary fermenter style. Deep rich dark red color. The nose is fairly simple with ripe red raspberry and vanilla. The kind of somewhat nondescript type of fruit you get with an 85 point wine, nothing wrong, but sort of made to a formula. Nice little bit of tangy tartness on the roof of the mouth.

I can agree with the comment below. A great wine. It's nothing fancy to impress the guests with. But I'd have it any saturday with a steak. Smooth, nicely balanced with a rich mouthfeel. Very fruity with taste of dark berries and a long finish.

Very deep dark colour. Definite musky smell with undertones of fruit and spice. Medium bodied with dry tannins, dark fruit and long finish. Doesn't have the depth of other vintages of this wine but still a reasonable drink. Probably would have been better a few years ago with more prominent fruit. No sediment at bottom of bottle.

Deep purple colour. Aroma of nutmeg and cloves and cinnamon. Initially very bland, lack of fruit and light oak. After an hour or so, it developed into dark berries and good undertones of oak. Very subtle tannin, medium body not too dry.
