    (Rosemount Balmoral Syrah (McLaren Vale)) A good deep red colour, but what a nose! Absolutely packed with aromas of grilled cuts of meat, barbecued sausage, charcoal, very slightly jammy ripe berry fruits, black pepper, pickling spices and a touch of floral perfume. On the palate, a medium bodied wine with an elegant edge, packed with smoothly textured and powerful fruit. Lots of structure underneath, firm but unobtrusive tannins and lifting acidity. It finishes with a flourish of that acidity, which keeps the length fresh and flavoursome. Showing much better than my last tasting of this just a few months ago.

    (Rosemount Balmoral Syrah (McLaren Vale)) Another dense wine. A big nose of chocolate and fruit, with a stylish, elegant, perfumed edge. An impressive mixture of fruit and acidity, with less prominent tannins.
